This cool dude is Enzo, a Border Collie/Airedale Terrier mix. He was born in January, 2021. He weighs about 45 pounds. He has a fun, funky, curly mohawk down his back.
Enzo knows: Sit, down, heel, right & left turn, down at a distance, ‘go to your crate’, and other commands. He waits and makes eye contact for treats and his dinner. He knows tricks, too. He did very well in an Intro to Nosework class.
Enzo is house trained and uses the dog door. He is also crate trained. He uses the crate to relax and sleep. Enzo is good with anyone kind and appropriate. The calm kids he’s met have been able to give him treats for tricks or pets. On hikes and walks he gets a little shy of people approaching and just prefers some distance. He will get curious and want to sniff if new people direct their attention away from him. Treats are a great icebreaker for him.
Enzo is good with other dogs. He loves to play and even shares toys with dogs, initiating tug games with them. Enzo loves fetching rope toys and floppy toys. He loves sharing his toys with his people and will find toys to bring to initiate a game. Enzo is good in the car in a crate and can get excited when he is going somewhere he likes.
Enzo is good on leash and can be uncertain sometimes with new situations. A confident dog pal helps him see that it’s all ok. Enzo is best on quiet streets and hikes, so being a city dog isn’t the life for him. Enzo will thrive in a home that is fair, kind, and keeps him busy so he isn’t bored. He is a happy, fun-loving young dog who is up for anything fun and loves to learn. He has a lot of potential as a fun adventuring/sporting companion.
The shelter sees him living with a young active couple or family who has a yard to play in, can take him for hikes, and make him a big part of their lives. Enzo is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.
