Spark is ready to take on the world. He has a brave, curious heart and wants to explore will mature to around 40 pounds. A poster child for his breed, Spark is lively, energetic, and smart. He wants to be with his people, doing what they are doing.

Spark is a friendly boy, meeting new human and canine friends with confidence. Fully engaged with people and a pro at using his Border Collie eyes, he already communicates when he needs to go outside or when dinner is late. Spark quickly picked up our routines without a second thought and craves new experiences.

A busy family that understands herding dogs and is committed to great socialization (including sights, sounds, surfaces and people) would be fantastic for Spark. When combined with obedience classes (which he will ace, no doubt), Spark will have the foundation needed to be a well-rounded, well-mannered adult dog.

Spark is learning all the things puppies need to know: potty training, relaxing in a crate, and walking on leash. He would adore a canine BFF, Spark loves car rides and toys although he does need some supervision as his natural curiosity has him shredding toys at the moment.  He will chase a ball and we are working on him bringing it back.  A balance of physical and mental exercise is key to his heart.  

Families with kids around 10+ are a good fit. Spark needs a potty break every few hours at his young age and would be in heaven with a fenced yard.

From foster mom: “Spark is interested in everything! He is a fun boy with a captivating personality that draws you in. He makes me laugh and impresses me all at the same time  He’s a super boy and my entire family fell in love with him.  I have taken him to many busy agility trials where he has yet to meet a stranger. Spark to my knowledge has not been around cats.”

Spark is being fostered in the St Louis Mo area .
