Keno has been living with several other dogs and gets along with all of them, young and old, large and small - from chihuahua & Pekingese to other border collies and a couple of pit bulls, ages 4 yrs to 16 yrs. He loves to play with the other dogs! He has been exposed to cats, is curious about them, hasn’t chased any and doubtful that he would attack one. He’s a lover, not a fighter. He has not been tested with children, but due to his boisterous high energy, he would be best with older children and adults.
Keno is currently enrolled in a basic obedience class, still needs work with leash training, but’s sits, downs and “looks” (watch me) on command. The tricks he knows are spin (clockwise), twist (spins counterclockwise), give his paw and roll over. His stay is getting better.. He likes to jump up and paw with his front feet, so we are working on the “off” command and using his “sit” to get attention and treats. Any training needs to be very upbeat and positive.
Due to his high energy and need for mental and physical exercise, his foster mom thinks Keno would do well in a dog sports home that would pursue agility or flyball with him. A pet home would need to spend a lot of time with him as a running buddy, after more leash training, and spending a lot of time playing with him.
Keno is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and heartworm prevention. His adoption fee is $200.00, an approved adoption application from BCRT, and a home visit are required. He is being fostered in the Dallas area.
