Turbo

#804 Turbo, Male, 1 Year Old

My name is Turbo because I am an athlete and love to run, jump, twirl, and play – the faster, the better! I have a lot of puppy energy and a happy, fun personality!

I am a 1.5 year old 45 pound, healthy, neutered boy: tall, athletic, and handsome!

I love the big yard and hard playing dog at my foster home and hope to find an active, dog experienced partner who already participates in dog sports such as agility, or lure coursing… or maybe dock diving or any big games! I hope you know a lot about Positive Reinforcement Training.

I love to learn – and have a lot more to do – which would be exciting for you if you love to teach! I show great results, pretty fast! I know Sit, Down, Stay (sometimes), Go to Bed (I easily go in my crate and sleep there all night), sometimes ring a bell to go outside, and I ride well in a car.  I need to work on “off” (I love to jump up for hugs!) and to be calmer on a leash (I like to pull and zoom). Did I mention I love to play?

I hope you have a dog who loves to chase and wrestle and play hard who is also confident and can teach me how to be a great dog friend. Because I am young and big and bouncy, I might accidentally hurt small children, or people who are not strong and steady on their feet…or small animals. I have met small children, and I get very excited, sometimes bark at them, and want to charge at them – to me, it’s playing. But it’s not safe so I’m better with bigger people – teenagers and adults.

I am sometimes overly interested in small dogs, and cats so living with them in the same house might not work out so good when I get super-charged. Snuggle? How could I forget? I LOVE TO SNUGGLE. I actually love any human attention so be ready for a constant companion and a lot of hugs and kisses! Do I sound like your kind of Border Collie? Fill out an application now!
