#373 HEATH

My name is Heath, like the candy bar! I am 9 months old and am such a sweet and handsome boy! I am located in New Braunfels, Texas, but I travel really well in the car!

I am a border collie mix, even though I don’t look very border collie. Everyone always tells me that I am very handsome and I am certainly as smart as a border collie! The vet thinks I am mixed with lab and that I will probably grow to be (50-60 lbs). I’ve seen those dogs at the dog park and they sure are beautiful and know how to have so much fun!

My foster mom says I am a really good boy. For playtime I like to run and chase my foster sister, wrestle with the big dogs, enjoy balls, frisbee, and squeaky toys. Oh and sticks. I adore sticks and like to chew on them, though my foster mommy has to limit this because I have no self-control and will eat the whole stick. She is a joy-kill.

Walks and runs are amazing. I mean, really amazing and I look forward to my daily walks with exuberance! Sometimes on walks I see birds, deer and toads and they all capture my interest! If I could just figure out how to escape this harness and leash so I could chase them…. did I mention that my foster mom is a joy-kill???

I am pretty darn interested in cats and while I am nice to them, I chase them and my foster mom says that causes the cats anxiety. Why can’t the cats just take a xanax?? I don’t understand, but mom says that I would do best in a home with NO cats! And because I have grown up in a house with lots of dogs, I really do enjoy the companionship of dogs, so if you already have one, I would be a good boy and play with the other dogs.

Now that I have had all my shots, neuter and my microchip, my foster mom takes me to really fun places where I get to show of my superstar charm! We go to the local dog friendly watering holes, restaurants and sometimes to other friends homes. I love it when I get to go because everyone just loves how sweet I am and I get LOTS of ear scratches, kisses and belly rubs.

I am potty trained, sleep through the night, walk pretty good on a leash, know how to sit, working on stay. I sit and wait for my dinner to be served, and I am crate trained (mostly)- though I’d really rather just hang out with people and sleep on the sofa! I LOVE treats! I LOVE food! and I LOVE pets and cuddles!

I get a little anxiety with strangers and want to stay close to my humans. I am working on my confidence with strangers. My mom is teaching me how to sit quietly when I meet strange humans and dogs. I visited an apartment and because it was so busy and lots of people making noise, I had a very exhausting day barking to warn everyone of all the strangers in the apartment building. Apparently, some people didn’t enjoy me singing the song of my people. My foster mom says I need a home with a nice, big and secure yard.

If you are seeking a super fun dog who is also quite handsome and loves to cuddle, I am your man! Please consider adopting me!
