Some of our dogs have been in foster care longer than most. They are happy, healthy, and well-adjusted dogs but may not be the most desirable 'looking'. If you can look beyond the 'package' and into the heart of the dog, one of these special mutts may be for you.
Blackjack was rescued after being hit by a car. He had an initial surgery to repair his pelvis and reset his hind leg. Unfortunately, he never regained use of the leg and it atrophied. A second surgery was performed to removed the leg. So, Jack is a tripod. He actually gets around better now. See his video!
Jack is a typical Border Collie - extremely intelligent and inquisitive. However, he is not as high energy as a full BC and is a bit smaller. He likes to go on walks but tires fairly quickly. He wants to inspect everything you are doing, he wants to herd and protect his flock/people, he does not respond to 'tone of voice' correction. He does respond extremely well to food based rewards. Jack loves to play with a tennis ball and will retrieve or will play alone with a ball, Kong, or stuffed toy. He is fine with older, respectful children. He is currently in foster with 11 other dogs. Jack is also good with cats.
Blackjack is completely housebroken, crate trained, neutered, fully vaccinated, and dewormed. We estimate Jack to be about 2 1/2 years old.
This dog is currently in foster in Mexico and will be until foster/adoption and transport arrangements can be made to Texas.
