Huck is an energetic and playful 5 year old border collie mix, and is a sweetheart once he gets to know you. Huck is very well trained and can sit, lay down, come, crawl, and stay. He absolutely loves playing ball, or fetch with any other item, playing "find it", going on runs, and playing with his rope toys. He is very loyal and does not stray far from his person when off the leash, but he is leash trained as well. He is house broken and has only had one or two accidents in the past. He has had no health problems to date. However, he is very shy, and becomes defensive when meeting new people and takes several meetings to warm up to others.
He does warm up to women quicker than men, and has little experience with children. Initially, he will bark and growl, sometimes nip at strangers, but if disciplined by his owner, he will stay quiet and sit next to you unless approached by the stranger. He tends to be alright with other dogs that are about his size, but is best by himself. He does not get along well with small dogs or puppies. He does not have a problem with farm animals or other house pets like cats, however. I believe the best kind of home for him is one that has only children above the age of 13, some land for him to run around on, and a home with time to spare and give him lots of love and attention. I would also recommend gradually introducing him to a new family, so he can get to know them first. Huck is neutered, up to date on shots.
