“Meet Larry, a 43-pound, 1-year-old Border Collie mix. Larry is a super sweet boy. He is house-trained, active but not hyper and good with most other dogs (cats unknown). Larry is heart-worm negative, microchipped, and neutered. His vaccinations are up to date. Larry sleeps quietly through the night in a crate, does well with a bath, and is great with car rides.

“Larry is a smart little guy, who enjoys to learning new tricks, he knows sit, lay down, leave it, drop, shake, high five, and wait. He also enjoys scent games and playing with other dogs. He is an affectionate cuddler who wants to be with his people and really likes when they are all together. Larry enjoys a hike, but also enjoys hanging in the house near his people. He will sleep by you while you work with a couple of short potty breaks.

“Larry has had a bit of a bumpy start at life, he was adopted from a rescue, but shortly after, he was surrendered due to volatility in the adopter’s home. He has since been in a foster home. Larry is building his confidence every day and has grown exponentially. He is learning to trust through stability and compassionate interactions. As with many young dogs in COVID, Larry has not had many opportunities for socialization and will need gradual introductions with new people and activities.

“Larry is a gentle boy that will flourish in a predictable, stable environment. He needs an experienced pet owner who can provide a consistent routine, praise, boundaries, and affection.

“We are asking for Veterinary reference and a $200 adoption fee, the fee can be escrowed for training, with receipts.
