Walter is a 7 month old 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 Springfield, MO area.
