#870 Teddy, Male, 2 Years Old

Hi, my name is Teddy (#870) and I am a cuddly mini Aussie/Collie mix believed to be a young 2 years old. I am looking for a forever family that is ready for a semi-active lovable guy who likes to play and take naps.
I take a short time to warm up to certain people so I am requesting a patient family that allows me time to love everyone.  I love food so treats are the best way to gain acceptance. Once I am comfortable I am very friendly, enjoy belly rubs, and sitting close to my person.
I am currently in a foster home with multiple dogs and teens, and have adjusted to meeting new people. I am fully housebroken, and sit by the door patiently to go in and out. I know the commands sit, shake, lay down, and I am working on stay. I am crate trained but do not do well for long periods of time in a crate.  t would be best to be in a home where the family is not gone daily for long hours. I play with toys but respect the boundaries of the home and I am not destructive.
I walk well on a leash and will stay by your side not pulling, I might point you in the direction I want to go with my nose at your ankles. I love car rides and often want to sit in the passenger’s seat but will ride well in any part of the car.
I have true herding instincts so I will sometimes give my foster family a nudge on the ankles with my nose or a nip during a walk if I want your attention. For this reason I would do best in a home with older children. Unfortunately due to this herding instinct I do not do well in a home with cats or other small animals.
We recommend a meet and greet if your family currently owns a dog. Teddy is very cuddly and doesn’t want to compete for attention with certain dogs. He plays rough with his foster dog family and prefers to wrestle. He has also done well with older, quiet dogs.
