Drew is an approximately 10 week old border collie mix. He is your average young puppy who plays in spurts and sleeps most of the day. It's hard to say what his personality will be like since he's so young, but he's an otherwise happy-go-lucky little guy.
He loves to cuddle and be with his people and LOVES to be held. He likes playing with his toys and destuffing them. He is still a bit too young to be completely house broken yet but as long as he is consistently let outside he doesn't have any accidents. As he gets older he should be an absolute breeze to house break! Since he is so young, preference will be given to a home with a schedule that allows frequent potty breaks outside. He currently sleeps through the night but he should ideally be let out halfway through the average work day.
He is currently being fostered with another dog and a cat. He enjoys playing with the dog, and does show some interest in the cat. If his adoptive family has cats he will just need some guidance on appropriate interactions.
He is up to date on all of vaccinations and deworming schedule. Drew does have a small umbilical hernia that will need to be repaired at the time he is neutered. He also experienced a seizure following his distemper/parvo vaccine, but has since shown no health concerns.
UPDATE 06/12/2019: Drew had an unfortunate accident with a slippery tile floor last Friday. He was running, and fell just right, and has a non-displaced fracture of the tibia. Interested applicants should know that Drew is now facing a few weeks of recovery which will require weekly vet visits for splint and bandage changes, and updated X-rays. The good news is that since he's so young he will heal quickly. We understand this might not be something the average person is willing to sign up for. Drew promises endless snuggles for the right applicant willing to give him a lending hand in his recovery!
