Adult * Male * Large * Tri-Sable Merle
My name is Hunter and I need a furever home. Look at my sweet eyes. I am a rough-coated collie (that means long fur that needs to be brushed regularly) available through NorthEast Ohio Collie Rescue. I have warmed up to my foster mom and will make someone a loving companion who is willing to give me attention. I am a bit jealous of other large dogs in the house and would likely thrive in a home where I am an only dog. I get along fine with the cat in my foster home. There are no young children here so they don’t know how I do with young children. Probably teenagers and energetic persons would run and play with me. That would be great! I have lots of energy and will need a fenced yard to run in. I also like to sit calmly right next to mom when she is in her favorite chair. I will sit for quite awhile as she keeps dropping her hand to rub my back and head, maybe you could do that for me. It feels so nice and I actually smile. I especially like to be gently scratched behind my ears and on my neck.
Hey, my shaved fur is already growing back. Mom thinks that I am a tri-sable merle collie as my main body coat was dark brown or mahogany with white ruff, blaze and paws. Around my ears and near the top of my neck, is silver/gray fur. My coat will be stunning when it grows back. As a merle, I have one brown and one blue eye with no apparent vision issues.
I am up to date with vaccinations, neutered and micro-chipped. No heartworm nor fleas nor ticks and I am on preventive medication. My thyroid level is low so I am on inexpensive medication. Although I was a bit skittish when introduced to a new environment, I have already settled down quite a bit. I will sit upon command and am learning to walk properly on a leash. I sleep in a crate with the door open or on a soft blanket near my foster mom’s bed. I am five years old and want to spend my furever home with someone who will love and care for me.
