BRISCOE is a gorgeous, 50 pound rough coat Border collie estimated to be 1.5 years old. He came into his foster home shy, fearful, and submissive. It took him only about one week to begin opening-up and expressing himself as the goofy, playful pup he truly is. Even during his first days when he was still uncertain, BRISCOE showed no signs of aggression.
Upon coming to his foster home, BRISCOE immediately mingled well with two other dogs. He has grown to enjoy his crate and will voluntarily kennel himself when asked to by his foster mom and dad. He has bounds of energy when they arrive home, but quickly settles into a quiet routine again. Most days BRISCOE can be found minding his own business, sleeping on a hardwood floor.
BRISCOE has been exposed to horses, goats, chickens, and cats in his foster home. He is fearful of horses and very eager and attentive when he sees a cat. Subsequently if a cat runs, BRISCOE instinctively tries to chase. He would probably do best in a home without cats. Although BRISCOE has easy access to the farm animals, he shows no interest- he much prefers his foster mom or dad!
BRISCOE has not had an accident in the house since his first week of arrival. He knows what “no” means, has a good recall, and a strong desire to please. BRISCOE enjoys chewing on toys, and will occasionally grab a shoe, curtains, or even clothes when excited, but again, responds very well to “no.” BRISCOE loves to romp around his foster family’s property with other dogs and enjoys playing in water of any kind, including his water bowl. He walks very well on a leash, likely because he is shy. He rarely barks, and he has been appropriate with children. In general Briscoe travels well, but on a lengthy car ride with a winding road, he has gotten carsick.
BRISCOE has made fostering look easy and has truly been a pleasure to watch grow in his short time with us. We foresee him being a very loyal and loving pup to the lucky person/family he will soon call his own.
