Meet JOSH, our three year old, 42 lb male Border Collie / Australian Cattle Dog mix sporting a soft, smooth coat with freckling on his paws, muzzle and chest. He learned his name quickly and this smart, handsome lad has shown himself as quick to learn whatever we show him. JOSH is a bundle of fun and joy bouncing out of his crate every morning ready for a day filled with exploring, playing with his 4 Border collie packmates at his foster home and waiting patiently…well, more or less patiently for a treat! JOSH is a good guest here at his foster home. He learned to crate quickly and runs to his crate every time treats or dinner time is here. JOSH is quiet in his crate overnight. He has not had an accident while he’s been here so he is housebroken. He loads up easily in the car and rides nicely on road trips (even to the vet!). JOSH plays nicely with his foster pack but this brash little chap had to be shown by his packmates where he was in the pack order. He took the lesson well.
JOSH has shown good manners here and is not prone to excessive barking, digging, chewing etc… He DOES chase the resident cat, Pucklechurch, but she is very dog savvy and knows all of the escape routes. JOSH absolutely loves petting and tummy tickles. He will press up closely to you to make sure he doesn’t miss out on any cuddles; he settles nicely in our home and finds a Kong or antler to gnaw on during the evening. JOSH has been appropriate with people who stop by to visit, he’s a great ambassador for his rescue home and I was proud of him as our foster parents came and went last week picking up donated items needed for rescue. JOSH is ready for his new home and family. We will miss him!
