Pete is a beautiful, energetic, teenage, herding dog!  Pete is a 2 year old male Border Collie mix (approximate DOB is August 2016); his DNA results indicate he is: ½ border collie, ¼ German shorthair pointer, ¼ lab, and ¼ whippet.  He is young, energetic, and without health issues.  If you are looking for an active dog to add to your active lifestyle, Pete is the dog for you!  He could possibly be a good agility companion or ranch dog with some training.  He could also make someone a great hiking or jogging partner. Pete is a very friendly boy and is quite bouncy.  He gets along well with other dogs.  He is not aggressive at all; he loves everyone he meets and does not have a mean bone in his body.

Pete is sweet and silly and loves to play with his ropes (at the boarding kennel, he is known as the boy with the rope in his mouth).  Pete is currently living with 2 senior citizens and while he is very much loved and enjoyed, he would most likely be happier and healthier in a home with an active lifestyle.  Pete is an absolute love… he is quite happy to be in the house with his senior pack.  He sits at grandma’s feet and is happy to keep them warm in the winter months.  He loves his momma and is most happy getting chest and belly rubs, as well as hugs and kisses. Unfortunately, Pete doesn’t get the physical activity or socialization that a young dog requires; it is for that reason that we are looking to rehome him.  He doesn’t get out much and would need a bit of socializing to become the best Pete he can be.  He needs some training on the leash and needs to learn basic commands.  He has responded well to informal training, and I believe he would flourish with formal training.

Pete is micro-chipped, neutered, heart worm negative and on preventative meds.  He is up to date on vaccinations.  Pete sleeps all night in his crate, and is crated at times during the day; he does very well in the crate.  He is potty trained and does very well in the house. Pete lives in Sacramento.
