Dion • Male • 4 months • Adopted!

Please visit the Homepage to start your search for available dogs. Thank you!

DION is one of the sweetest puppies I have had the pleasure to foster. He is about a 4-month-old, smooth coated black and white border collie mix. He has a cobby body with a beautiful stance and a wonderfully happy curled tail tucked over his back. He has very dark kind eyes that are full of expression. DION is very loving and affectionate. He likes to be close or even touching you unless he has something more exciting to do, like playing with the other dogs. He is fine with the cat, chickens in a coop, the two large tortoises and a variety of herd animals on the other side of the yard fence.

DION has been allowed to sleep on the bed at night (sometimes he chooses to sleep on the floor).  He has been allowed to do this because his potty-training has been excellent with a dog door. He easily goes into a crate for a treat. I was told he didn't complain at all about being in a crate at the vet when he was neutered. DION has been around a variety of dogs, people, and kids. He is moving right along with his leash training and has a good sit and wait. He has a high desire to please. He is treat motivated but will also do things for lots of pets and loving.

DION’s favorite toys are balls and any toy that squeaks. Playing tug with a person or another dog is also way fun. He is good at sharing playtime and toys with the other dogs. Of course all young pups have things to learn and work on. For DION it will be how to keep his enthusiasm in check, a bit more control of his wild kisses and talking when running. Many of these things will self-correct as he grows up. He loves being a puppy and only gets to be that age once so my hope for him is that he has the best puppyhood ever! His forever family will be lucky to have him in their life!

DION is micro-chipped, neutered, current on his puppy shots including his first year rabies vaccine.
