Walter is such a quick study!  He's learned sit, down and shake in very short sessions.  Now we're really focusing on socializing so he can learn to be as confident and affectionate away from home as he is here.  Walter also showed interest in the agility equipment so we've started having some fun with that too. 

He really is a great combination of border collie energy and playfulness but has that nice "off switch" where he will lay on a bed and entertain himself with toys and chew bones or snuggle on the sofa with you.  He's around 10 months old now and has grown some and filled out but is still under 30 pounds and a nice compact size boy.  We have learned he is very fearful of small children so he will need a home with older or no children.

Walter is a smooth coat border collie. He is such a sweet, smart playful little guy.  He is both food and toy driven and a quick learner.  Walter came from a horrible neglect/hoarding situation so he can be a little shy at first but after a short amount of time he will be in your lap and all snuggles.  Overall,  he has amazed us with how adaptable and easy going he has been considering his background.  Currently he weighs about 25 pounds and will probably stay on the smaller side but has started catching up now that he's getting proper care and nutrition. 

He likes all toys but balls and plush squeaky toys are his favorite.   Walter really enjoys playing with other dogs and we have found they make him more comfortable in new situations,  so having at least one canine companion would be ideal for him.  He ignores the kitties in his foster home so feline companions are optional.  

Walter has a very good recall and sleeps quietly in his kennel. He's made lots of progress on house training and is working on leash training currently.  If you're looking for an active dog that also enjoys snuggling on the sofa, Walter's you're boy!

Walter is being fostered in the St. Louis, MO area.
