Give a big howdy to JIM BOB, a two to three year old, 41 lb, smooth coat, male border collie. We can best describe JIM BOB as a laid back happy-go-lucky boy. He has gotten along well with all of the dogs he’s been encountered since coming into rescue, including the boy he was kenneled with at the shelter and all of the male & female dogs at his foster home. Right now he's wrestling with one of the foster dogs and he’s having a blast!

JIM BOB has been a good house guest at his foster home. He doesn’t jump up on furniture and he is house broken. He crates easily when we need to go out for a spell during the day and for sleeping quietly at night. Nor is JIM BOB is a barker or a digger in the garden. He does chew on things a bit so appropriate chew toys should be at hand and offered to him routinely. He has been a somewhat cat curious, but our PuckleCat has let him know such attention is not welcome! A home with a dog savvy cat may be best for our JIM-BOB. He likes to fetch ball, but typically defers to the more serious ball players in the pack and has been hesitant to push in. We anticipate however after more time in his new surroundings he would become a full time player.

JIM BOB loves to run. If you are a runner or like to go hiking JIM BOB would be a great athletic companion. He isn't toy or food aggressive and walks nicely on leash. He knows his name already and is a quick learner! He is a bit camera shy and we can inform you he is even more handsome than his photos show him to be already! JIM BOB’s rucksack is packed and awaits his furever family. Give us a shout if you think JIM-BOB is the dog for you and yours!

JIM BOB is micro-chipped, neutered, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.
