New life, new name: Bogart!
Was a stray,horse
pad and all I ended up at the pound-click .
Shelter called me Scruffy, which is a good name for the happy stray I
Now I am in this here "Terrier Boot Camp" and getting a bit of polish,
because I am a diamond in the ruff!
I love everyone. I am a leaner, I know
my place in the pack, strictly underdog when it comes to people.
What breed? I have a wiry "rough" coat that grows to a certain length,
beard and eyebrows and all. Low maintenance. Might have Border
Collie heritage along with some wirehaired breed. Long legs,
about 40 lbs. And a herding streak with a commanding border collie
"stare". And when another dog gets too direct with
me, I will herd him with playful leg tug, that gets him in line.
Fascinated by cats. Hear cats cannot be herded though, so I just stare at
them. Love to run, and when accidentally or rather on may part
luckily, I get to run off leash, I run in wide circles, far off territory,
but will come after a little while. However i am not allowed to "run
away" because I could end up being roadkill, nah.
So from the above you will see that
- I need a home with a fence and
space to run
- I am not a dog who would easily
mingle with small children except if they are already Border Collie
trained (the kids that is)
- I need some structure and
discipline, and maybe even a purpose (like learning to gather a
flock or train for agility) so I can finally grow up. I am
smart enough for any of these.
I am around 3 years old, fixed and healthy of course.
Turns out, now that my feathers
have mostly grown back and I have filled out, I am quite
photogenic if I may say so myself! So after all, I am living up
