- Additional Info: Jeep was part of a litter of 6 pups that came into rescue. Their owner was homeless and living out of a car when they were born. They were raised for the first 6.5 weeks of their life in a car (hence the car-theme names)! Despite their questionable beginnings, this entire litter has been by far the nicest litter that has ever come into rescue. (pictures range from 8 w/o to current). Jeep and his sister Porche are the two highest drive pups of the litter. The other 4 pups have all been placed in agility homes already.
Jeep is an awesome little man. He has a beautiful build and structure, great angulation, proper proportions, etc. His coat is smooth. Jeep is smart as a whip and learns things quickly. He loves training and gives it 200%. He has caught on very quickly in his training so far. Jeep is great w/other dogs and people. Jeep takes after the sheltie a little more in that he is reserved around new people. He isn't scared of them, but doesn't run up and try to make friends. Jeep is very loyal to his person and puts his trust in his leader. He loves going to training classes and learning new things. His new owner is someone who likes working w/a sheltie temperament vs. a BC.
Jeep's future will be as a competitive agility dog and possibly obedience dog. He is an absolute dream to work and the sky is the limit for her. He's been started on heads-up heeling, sit/down, spin/twist, body awareness, box work, nose-touch dumbbell work, tunnels, puppy jump bumps, and the puppy teeter. He has limited nosie and no texture sensitivites. He will only be placed in an experienced, competitive, performance home who uses balanced training methods. If you do not indicate on the application, your experiences as a competitive/experienced trainer, your application will not be processed. We will be extremely picky on where he goes.
This foster dog is fed with food provided by Chuck and Don’s Pet Food Warehouse.
