Flint is a 1-2 year old male, possibly border collie and cattle dog mix.  He weighs about 45 lbs. Flint came to MOKAN as a stray with a broken front leg.  The fracture has healed and he rarely limps at this time.  Due to the uncomplicated nature of the fracture we expect him to continue on to make a full recovery.  As it stands currently it does not slow him down one bit!

Flint is a sweet boy who is full of energy, he will just go and go and go!  Flint loves all manner of toys and will fetch or play happily on his own. He also enjoys chew toys, frozen Kongs and more!  Flint is very smart and food motivated.  He has come a long way with his learning of basic manners and obedience. 

Flint is crate trained, seems mostly house trained (may try to mark at first) and is good with other dogs-but can get very rowdy when playing if the other dog is up for it! He would be ok with dog savvy cats as he doesn’t want to hurt them but will chase if he thinks they will run. 

Flint has potential for many sports and also seems to enjoy water, often playing in the baby pool with his toys.  He will require a large amount of exercise and mental stimulation as he is not good at just napping but has learned to lie on the couch and just chew his toy or bone.

Flint is still working on leash walking skills.  He does well with a gentle leader-although he does find it annoying he walks quite well on it  after just a few lessons.  His overall leash pulling is getting better but he can definitely benefit from continued training.  Flint is also working on remaining calm in his crate.  He does sometimes bark for a few minutes when left in his crate and sometimes gets overstimulated by activity outside his crate. This has improved significantly but will need continued work.  He had the same over excited reaction to being in the car and seeing things out the window but has not been in the car for a bit so this has probably improved as well.  However it would be recommended for him to ride in crate that limits his view of the outside for now. 

Flint is easy to bathe and groom and is working on nail trim skills.

With enough time, training, and patience Flint could probably be anything you wanted in an active companion-from hiking and swimming to possibly even search and rescue.  He will require a standard above ground fence.  No apartments at this time due to possibility of loud barking.

Flint it being fostered in the Springfield, MO area.
