This handsome boy is an absolute fetchaholic! Every time I go outside with him, he immediately brings me a ball, toy, or frisbee & begs for me to throw it..again, and again, and again. Each time, he will bring it back & politely drop it at my feet. He will sit and stay & then catch an object that is tossed to him, often jumping & catching it in mid air. He is VERY athletic! He also likes a lively game of tug!
Kyle has also shown interest in working sheep. He would need an experienced & knowlegeable handler to train him in herding. He is not a beginner's dog.
Kyle is a very happy, friendly & outgoing fellow. He gets along well with the other dogs at his foster home, including several other Border Collies, some of which are elderly, and also a Chihuahua. He is good with both males & females. He has also been good with cats and chickens. He likes kids, but does have to be discouraged from jumping up & would not be a good choice for young children, as he could easily knock them down an/or grab things out of their hands.
Kyle sleeps in a crate at night & often spends several hours in an outside run. He is a fairly good listener who wants to please & enjoys a lot of free yard time. He appears to be totally housebroken.
He is very smart & learns quickly.
He is a very active dog & needs a JOB to properly channel his energy.
Kyle and his brother came to BRBCR from a couple whose life's schedule had become too busy to allow them the time to provide the proper amount of mental and physical activity that Border Collies need.
The ideal applicant should be someone with training experience who wants to pursue an activity such as agility or herding. This boy is NOT a couch potato!
All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues. Kyle's adoption fee is $300, and we offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.

Kyle's adoption is pending.
