TUCKER is a very handsome smooth-coat Border Collie who is only 1-1/2 year of age. He is a large-sized Border Collie, about 65 pounds. His short coat will be low maintenance requiring very little grooming and is also low shedding. He is a sweet and gentle fellow who seeks out human attention and affection often. Tucker is extremely smart as well as athletic and energetic, perhaps good for a dog-sports owner for competition or recreational purposes.
He just might excel in agility, nosework, tracking, frisbee or freestyle training. With proper introduction, he can meet new people nicely. He is somewhat partial to women. Tucker enjoys car rides and likes to stick his head out of the window. He will chase a ball but isn't always into the game of bringing it back. He probably did not have the mother-sibling training that comes from remaining with the litter until 9-10 weeks of age, so he has been learning the proper ways to behave with other dogs by example and (canine) correction. He is quite playful, but sometimes his invitations are too exuberant for the pleasure of the intended partner. He might be happiest as an “only-pet”, but could get along okay with one other high-tolerant dog in the home. Besides the full-size dogs here, he has two (small) Chiweenies that he plays with and defer with abandon.
Like many Border Collies, he would NOT be appropriate in a dog park. He has not yet learned that coming when called is a good thing - he can be quite wary if he thinks the next activity isn't scheduled. He probably had some bad experiences being confined without attention in his other life. On the other hand, he has gotten to know routines and does very well with expectations along those lines.
He enjoys being in the house, is free during the nights, loves to lie close on the couch before bedtime. He is happy to find a chew toy and some of them can be quite simple, like large branch.
Tucker is seeking an adult adopter with no small children in the home simply due to his exuberant personality. Tucker is a young dog who has a great deal of potential for the patient and knowledgeable handler.
Tucker is neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. He knows basic commands (sit, down, stay and “paw”).
