Okay, my community of awesome, dog loving people - I need your help! This handsome fellow is not one of our fosters, but he does need a home asap! Rome is a medium sized border collie mix, he's got SUCH a cute face! He's a little over a year old and is up to date on all his shots & heartworm medication. He's been in lots of training to be a service dog this year! He walks great on a leash and loves to play & go for runs. He's good with other dogs (we don't know about cats) and loves kids!
Rome has had a pretty great year really. He was taken out of a kennel and into a wonderful foster home in February of 2012. They have been working with a trainer weekly and he is a very well behaved guy! He is great with basic commands: sit, down, stay, wait, leave it, halt, heal, front, walk, up, off, speak. He can also get his leash and bring it. And as we were doing photos he just laid there as bikes and people walked by him-attentive but staying right where he should be.
Unfortunately the wonderful people who have been fostering him will be unable to keep him for much longer. They are moving and can't take him with them during this process.
If he goes back to the rescue group they are fostering with he will more than likely be kenneled until they find another foster or forever home for him. We want to avoid that so he doesn't lose all this great training!
