Meet Dude!

He is a purebred, classic, rough coat, black and white Border Collie that was purchased as a puppy and lived 8 years in the same home. Due to unfortunate circumstances in the family, he was surrendered to Mo-Kan and we are happy to help him find his forever home.

Dude is a wonderful gentleman in every way, and totally transitioned to his foster home. He is in foster with two young females, and gets along famously with them. He has been great with every dog he has encountered, even a bossy grand dog that firmly put him in his place!

He grew up with kids in the home, and has been with my grandsons, ages 3 and 8 months, he loves kids!! He is completely housebroken. He is crate trained, but prefers to sleep by your bed at night, and completely reliable outside his crate, at night and during the day when you are gone. He does like some squeaky toys and plays some with tennis balls. He cant let the young girls out do him!

Most of all he loves his people. He follows his foster mom absolutely everywhere, and constantly watching and keeping her in his site. He has discovered she is the fun one that takes him on walks, soccer parks, and hiking. This boy loves to be outside! He tried wading into the stream on the trails today, loving the water. He is also content to be in the coolness of the house and just lay down and chill.

Did I mention he loves exercise? He is a little overweight, is now eating good food, appropriate amount, and is being exercised daily, and slowly building his stamina. We discovered he probably had some sore joints, maybe a little arthritis, but has been on daily inexpensive anti-inflammatory that has relieved whatever soreness he had. He now runs on the hiking trails, and at the soccer fields! He is eager to keep up with his foster sisters! His recall is excellent, when off lead, he came to me every time he was called!! He walks off leash on the hiking trails, always staying close. He does well on a leash too.

He knows sit, shake, down, wait, and stay, and come.  He has a beautiful rough coat, and loves to be combed and brushed. He tolerates baths and water, and doesn’t mind having his nails trimmed.  He has been fully vetted, is healthy, and is microchipped.

He is such a sweet gentle soul that would love to be a wonderful companion to that special someone. He is just a love bug, bonds to his people, and will be a loving faithful companion.

This boy is a real gem!! Loving and so easy, he loves to give kisses! He would be great with other dogs, or fine solo so he can have all of your attention.

Dude is being fostered in the Kansas City area.
