#763 – Slate | COMING SOON

Hi friends! My name is Slate and someone told me you might have a backyard with squirrels to chase?!

I am a 3-year-old beautiful Merle Border Collie with the energy of a puppy (mom says BC’s are still puppies until about 10 years old anyway). I am an active dog who LOVES to play and run, especially when playing with the garden hose, but right now I’m stuck on something called “crate” rest because when my foster mom got me, I had a horrible but totally preventable problem called Heartworm Disease! I will be required to have limited activity until September most likely and this means I need an owner who can give me the appropriate outlets for my energy and mind.

I completed my heartworm treatment and now need to be fixed and go back in a few months for another heartworm test and *fingers crossed* have it come back negative! I am not available for adoption right now but Mom said people deserve to see my handsome face now!

Right now, we are focusing mostly on puzzle games and gentle walks on a leash. I’m not allowed any high activity fun but I can promise you, once I’m clean and clear from Heartworms I’ll be the best running, agility, ball chasing fur friend you could ever need!

I get along with a lot of other dogs, big or small. I also don’t mind cats, I’ll sniff and interact with them but as long as they are dog-confident, we can be friends!

I’m house trained and crate trained. I’m cute and I’m cuddly. I need people willing to dedicate time and patience to my training. I am happy and willing to please, treats are the best, but I need to have something to focus on. Training, games, agility will be the best thing for me.

Stay tuned for more photos and updates as I go through my Heartworm treatment and enjoy life like I should be!
