More Info: Angus is a transfer from another rescue.
Training: Angus knows basic commands.
Additional Info: Angus is a drop-dead GORGEOUS border collie boy. Angus is also a high energy, higher drive, deaf, border collie. He likes to play ball and LOVES to play frisbee! . He is reliably crate trained and has never had an accident in the house while in foster care. Angus is a shadow chaser...meaning that he becomes obsessive over shadows, or flashing lights, this is made worse if he does not get enough mental and physical exercise. He will fixate on shadows, even over food, so things like laser pointers as training tools are out of the question for him. We have started working on redirecting him when he fixates on shadows, but is a long process of retraining and his new home should be prepared for that. Angus has been started on a vibrating collar while in foster care; this is to help his new family to communicate w/him. He also knows quite a few hand signals. Angus loves to learn things and is super smart!
Angus loves to hang out with and snuggle with his family. However, when over-stimulated or over tired, he can regress needs a time out. He is good with non-dominant male dogs and most female dogs. Angus would do best in a home with no children, and preferably only dog-savvy cats. He would also do best with someone who can give him lots of structure- he thrives on lots of love, and a consistent exercise schedule. Angus will require someone who is is well-versed in balanced training methods and who has experience with border collies. Angus will require a physically fenced (4' minimum) yard.
