Are you looking for your next performance dog, running buddy, or Frisbee player? Then Cade is the boy for you! This happy one year old boy was left to be euthanized when his family was moving, but luckily a lot of great people intervened and helped Cade get to rescue. Cade is a typical border collie who needs lots of exercise and mental stimulation. He will be looking for an owner who wants to spend a lot of time training and playing but will truly be a wonderful companion and teammate for the right person. He is a sweet and cuddly (but wiggly) boy!
Cade loves to play ball, enjoys tugging, playing with toys, and is also food motivated. Cade knows some basic obedience commands including sit, down, shake, can do some short stays and comes when called. He has also been working on some agility. He does jumps, tunnels, the tire, table, will run over a low a-frame and has started doing short sequences of 2-4 obstacles. He loves to work and is eager to please. We think Cade could have potential as an agility, Frisbee or obedience dog. He has amazing vertical jumping ability!
Cade was very shy when he came to us and may still initially be nervous at new places but when taken to a few agility trials it took only a few minutes to settle in and be able to play, perform tricks and enjoy meeting new people. Cade has a strong personality and will need an owner who can provide leadership to him by setting consistent rules around the house and enforce them in a calm and kind but firm manner. With proper guidance, he will flourish in his new home and continue to learn new things and gain confidence.
Cade is crate trained, housebroken, rides well in the car, tolerates bathing and brushing and is good in the house. He currently lives with 3 other border collies (2 male and 1 female), a Pomeranian, and a cat. He gets along well with all of them and likes men, women, and children. He is a very lean 40 lbs and approximately 20 inches tall. Because he chases cars a home with a fenced yard will be given preference.
