Chief gets along great with all the other dogs here in his foster home. He has been good with the cats, but if they take off running he would like to give chase but calls off right away. He doesn't have the border collie eye and sit and watch the cats. Chief is happy sitting at my feet and has done quite well in the house.
Chief could use an obedience class. He is working on his sit and when the treats come out he can hardly sit still but he tries real hard to please. His house training is coming along nicely. Chiefs recall is great. I have only had him out running in the pasture and yards with the other dogs and he comes when called but haven't had him outside of his foster home to see how he does. He does want to jump up but its very easy to get him not too.
He was a little hand shy here at first and if I pass my hand over his head he will duck a little but has come to realize I mean him no harm and is getting better about ducking. The booms from Fort Lewis don't seem to faze him a bit.
Chief is a medium active border collie and comes with a off button! He is happy to be in the house and lounge on the dog bed.
Let's talk about his crate. He LOVES his crate. When he comes in the front door he heads straight for his crate in the back room and stands and waits to go in. When he gets out of his crate he goes straight to the front door. I had to let him know he doesn't always have to go in his crate its okay to hang out with us in the house!
Chief will be getting neutered next week along with his vaccines and microchip and will then be ready for adoption. Chief is SPDR affiliated and his adoption donation is $150. If you are interested in Chief please contact Vicki at firstname.lastname@example.org
