Maddon is a year old and very smart! Being a border collie, he is very energetic and LOVES being social with people and animals. His Australian Shepherd side of him makes him a busy and herding dog. He fully potty trained, can sit on command, shake on command, 'go lay down' on command, etc. Maddon is crated during the day and night when we are not able to watch him. He is out when we are home and awake and is very well behaved. He gets along with just about any breed except for pitbulls and bull dogs. He is very interested in cats but cats always find him too hyper. We currently live in a small apartment that is just not the right place for him. He needs a house with a yard and preferably another dog.
