Loving and affectionate
Medium Male Border Collie Dog
- Rescue group:
- PetRescue ID:
Cash is a beautiful 10 month old special needs boy who is largely, though not completely, deaf.
He is affectionate, loving, and highly social with his family so he needs to be allowed inside to mingle with them. Typical of his breed, he needs loads of exercise and stimulation. If left by himself for long periods without enough stimulation, exercise and interaction, he may become destructive.
He’s quite headstrong, although his manners have improved a lot since coming into care. He needs ongoing positive structure and training, and preferably someone with working dog breed experience.
Cash gets on well with other dogs once he is familiar with them, although there is some work to be done with him and dogs he doesn’t know. He is improving but can still be reactive, so anyone who takes him on will need to be prepared to work with this.
He has been going out to social settings and has proven to be great with young kids. Cash is also good with his foster family’s cat, but does like to chase birds suggesting poultry may be an issue, although this has not been tested.
As he is young, his foster family think he has so much potential for someone prepared to put in the work
Cash is mostly deaf.
We list animals for adoption on Pet Rescue as well as on our own Animals-in-Need Website. We talk with people who contact about an animal to see what their needs and situation are. My emphasis is on getting the right animal for the people and the right people for the animal. If everyone's needs are met things usually work out well.
If the situation sounds good we arrange a meeting. If all goes well we let people try the animal out for a couple of weeks to ensure that everyone is happy.
We keep records of all adopters, follow up to ensure all is well and undertake to take back any animal if circumstances change.
