Capture the Angels
Luke has been adopted.
Meet Luke! We don’t know too much about Luke’s past as he was found as a stray in TX. He appeared to be 7-8 weeks as of October 12 when I got him. He looks like a pure bred Border Collie but we can never tell for sure. He learned to sit for a hand signal on day 2, verbal down on day 3. We are working on his play drive so that it can be used to train in the future. To curve his obsession with Jazzy’s fluffy tail and my long hair, I got him a duster on a stick. He loves to nibble and tug on it. His mouthing and chewing can be easily redirected with food or toys.
On week 1, his energy level is pretty low for a Border Collie puppy. He is playful but it is not excessive. However, I am used to over-the-top high energy dogs, so he might be very active and wild to other people. We are mainly working on confinement this week. He howled and cried when I put him in a pen. He is quite a talker. It took him 2 minutes to figure out that crying doesn’t get me back but it is still work in progress. He is able to hold for 4 hours in his crate as long as his bladder is empty before going in. If he’s not crated, I take him out every 30 minutes to an hour. He goes potty on cue for me. He also potties on pad. He’s social but not excessively jumpy or mouthy as long as you don’t pay those behaviors. He is curious about my two large dogs but they ignore him for the most part. He is available for adoption to a qualified home in Texas. To apply or learn about our adoption process and adoption fee, please visit ABCR website.
I am looking for a family that;
For size comparison, Jazzy on the left is 33lbs.
