This handsome guy is an almost one year old, purebred border collie. He is full of love, cuddles, kisses and mischief.
Reno is a very happy dog that wants to greet all dogs and people. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body. Reno doesn't have much drive like most border collies and is happy to just be in the same room as you. He is the definition of velcro dog, following you from room to room sticking his nose in everything you're doing.
Reno does have some herding/nipping tendencies when playing with other dogs outside so he would do best with another border collie pal that plays like him (but would be fine with other breeds that don't mind that play style)! He does like to nibble on your hands when playing so would do best with older kids. He has been around cats but will chase and stare at them. He would do best with no cats or dog savvy cats.
Reno is a trainable dog and is learning basic commands such as sit, stay, down, come and go crate. Further training will make him very successful in life!
Reno has a soft personality and can be timid at times. He needs a gentle but firm hand to help guide the way. A fenced yard would be best for this guy to keep him safe since some noises scare him.
To start the adoption process, please fill out an application and then contact his foster mom, Megan at email@example.com. All potential adopters are required to have a home visit prior to placement of one of our rescues. Reno's adoption fee is $300, and we offer a two-week trial period when you adopt one of our dogs.
Thank you for considering a rescue!
