Biography

Scooter is a pure bred border collie and is a loving and very affectionate dog. He needs a home that will give him the exercise and attention that a high energy dog needs and deserves. We think the best fit would be an only dog in the home but he does do well with other dogs.

Scooter is extremely smart and very easy to train and knows several commands. He is eager to please and loves rewards with praise and treats.

He walks well on a leash, but does pull some. He is not walked often enough to keep the training up.

He is friendly with other dogs and loves to play.

He loves people, BUT, he must get to know you first. He can appear aggressive when introduced to new people and if you get too close to his face upon meeting he might nip.

Once he knows and is comfortable with you, he is extremely affectionate and a lap dog if you let him.

Scooter has eaten a natural raw for diet for years and is very healthy. He has seizures on occasion, but the vet has confirmed they are nothing to be concerned with and no medication is necessary.

Scooter is a great car rider and would make an excellent companion.

Does the dog have any medical issues?
Yes. He does have seizures on occasion. The vet said medication is not necessary and that it can be normal in this breed. The seizures only happen 3-4 x a year.

Does the dog have any history of aggression such as growling, lunging, snapping, or biting any adult or child?
Yes. He can appear aggressive toward new people, once he knows you he is extremely affectionate. It is best not to get in his face when you first meet him.

Does the dog have any history of aggression toward other animals?
No

What is the reason for re-homing?
We have 3 dogs and while there is no aggression towards the other two, he is jealous. He does lick and tend to the other dogs perpetually. In our household, his personality, high energy and demand for attention do not blend well at this point in our lives. He is a cause of stress and we want to find a home that can cater to his personality.
