About Riley (active adopters only)
We previously advertised Riley and now that we know more about him. We require a active, dog experienced adopter. (If you applied previously you may need to reapply. For new possible adopter – only apply if you meet the criteria below). Riley is a 35-lb, 11-month-old border collie/Shepard cross. He … is just like any puppy. He is super active and will test boundaries. He is super intelligent. He is a very affectionate and friendly pup! The advice of his foster Dad who has a lot of training experience is as follows: Riley is an exceptionally high level of excitement and drive to play/herd. He just needs a lot of exercise, a very very firm and tireless owner and a lot of patience. He ran 8.5 km yesterday and has been very good. He will need this everyday!! He’s been sleeping all day and waiting to go for another 8km run with me today. Aside from some nibbling here and there and being put in his place he has been great! However, he does have these highly excitement biting/nipping frenzies if he does not have enough exercise or stimulation (he is not aggressive just excitable.). He is very, very smart and knows exactly what he can get away with and with whom and to what extent. If you observe him for long enough, you’d see that he is so smart that he gets manipulative at times. The potential adopters would to spend some time with the foster Dad and Riley over the first couple of weeks or be in touch before taking him so that he could train/show them on how to handle him. (Presently fostered in Vancouver) It would also be good for Riley to go dog parks as he loves to play with dogs! They put him in his place and he does listen. Riley is good with his foster Dad and is getting better and better. If you are up for adopting this active, very smart puppy who is just going to get better over time, please apply today!
