*MUST LIVE IN 50-MILE RADIUS OF ITASCA (A SUBURB OF CHICAGO) WITHIN THE ILLINOIS BORDER TO ADOPT, NO EXCEPTIONS!* Howdy, friends! My name is Kobe, and if you are looking for a baller buddy, I am the handsome fellow for you! Even though I don't play basketball like my namesake, I am a champion in many ways: champion snuggler, champion athlete, champion best furry friend! I am a 1.8-year-old border collie mix, and best of all I am available for adoption through Fetching Tails Foundation! I am about 45 pounds of love and fun, and I am dressed to party with my luxurious black and white tuxedo fur! Some might point out that my uniquely awesome polka dot-pattern paws are my best physical feature, but I think it is my huge smile and love-filled eyes that demonstrate my happy-go-lucky and affectionate personality! Fetching Tails saved me from a shelter in southern Illinois where I was brought as a stray. I waited patiently for someone to notice me there, and I hit the jackpot when my foster daddy saw my picture and said yes to giving me my big break! I am having the best time in my foster home, and I hear it gets even better when I finally find my forever family! I am an active, playful guy and would love a fenced yard at my forever home so I can romp and run to burn my collie energy. I am also a good jogging buddy if you are looking for a companion to help you work on your fitness; I am always so happy to go on a run with my foster daddy! I get along with dogs of all sizes and ages, and even kitty cats, so I would be a good addition if you already have a furry friend. I love making new friends, whether furry or not: I adore kiddos and if I am being honest, my absolute favorite activity of all is being my person's side. Nothing makes me happier than getting a belly rub and curling up next to you for some quality cuddles. Have you fallen in love with me yet? It gets better! I have excellent house manners, as well. I am potty trained and crate trained, even though I don't need to be because I don't get into mischief while my foster family is away from the house taking care of that human business they call work. I am lucky because there is often someone home with me in my foster home, but I am fine being home alone for around 5-6 hours. Of course, I am happy to greet you when you come home so we can enjoy playtime and snuggles again! So what are you waiting for? You know you wanna sign me up for your forever team! If an endlessly loving and fun all-star sounds like the perfect addition to your family, hurry up and fill out that adoption application soon! As much as I love my foster family, I am so excited to find a home to call my own!
