Meet Shade!

Shade is a sweet guy with a tiny bit of spice! One of a litter of nine that was born around May 5, 2017, Shade is a 'people-pleaser' and is very tuned-in to his family (litter-mates and foster parents alike). He has even bravely defended his sisters with puppy-growls and puppy-barks at the resident dogs in his foster home. However, his sisters routinely get the better of him during play-time.

Shade is quite sensitive and gets his feelings hurt easily. He responds very well to praise (and treats!) and has been quickly gaining confidence. He is a fantastic cuddle-bug, too. His face just beams with happiness when he is getting love and attention.

Shade will grow up to be a high-energy Border Collie mix who will need a lifestyle that will satisfy his sharp mind and active body. He has a natural tendency to stay close to his person, even when taking little walks. His potty-training is progressing very well.

Shade is healthy and has started on his puppy vaccinations.
