About Phoenix

Adoption Fee: $200
Border Collie / Australian Cattle Dog
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

Phoenix is the funniest, 15mo old 50lb guy! He is very active and much prefers to run and dance versus walking. He twirls when he runs and will leap back and forth in excitement when he knows a treat is coming. We are working on calming behaviors and impulse control, but he just gets so excited about being outside with his pals, it's hard for him to settle down for at least the first 15 min of playtime. Then he's more likely to pay attention to training games that teach more manners and commands. He appears to be a border collie / heeler mix, with what else, we don't know. His intelligence suggests this, too. Phoenix would be an awesome hiking partner. After a short run, he's also learning how to walk properly on a leash. Because of an old injury to his front leg when he was a puppy, he is not a candidate for long distance jogging or running. Walking and especially hiking would be the perfect outdoor activities instead. Phoenix loves other dogs so lots of doggy play dates are a must, although he doesn't need another dog in the home. He has not been tested with cats, so no kitties please. He loves children but he's still learning to be polite so kids must be over 12yrs old. An active home with a fenced yard is required. He does NOT have the herding tendencies like others of his breed type. Phoenix is crate trained and almost completely house trained. If he has potty breaks at least every 4-5hrs, he's doing great with his training
