TRIPP is a young rough coat fawn and white male Border collie mix. He is approximately 1 year of age and weighs in at a slim and trim 37 lbs. TRIPP loves to play. He especially enjoyed his time with our 3 month old puppy guest Bear. They would play and wrestle for as long as we allowed it. As Bear has moved on TRIPP now tries to engage our senior Newt and our gal Sissy in play. They will accommodate him only so long but he catches the hint and moves on to chill with foster dad in his office or on the couch. He loves to cuddle and be petted.
TRIPP arrived in our care with a partially amputated foot. He only has two toes left on one of his back paws. Only TRIPP knows how this happened, but he is recovering nicely and is ready for his forever home. When he walks he uses the partial foot most of the time. When he runs, he tends to pick it up.
TRIPP is crate trained, sleeping quietly all night and is content and calm during down times. He’ll go into his crate willingly (as long as we throw a treat in first). He is both treat and praise motivated. He is also house trained and has not had any accidents in his foster home. TRIPP is a very happy and active boy. He is very energetic, but not over the top. TRIPP is ready to join an active family that wants to include him in all their fun and games.
