Adopt Sam a White - with Black Border Collie / Mixed dog in Toronto

Location:
Toronto, ON
Description:

Sam is a neutered male Border Collie mix who just turned 10 years old. He is on the small side, at about 30lbs, with a lovely soft coat, and is still quite bouncy and active, but settles down well and will curl up next to your chair. He loves to jump up on the bed for a morning cuddle!Sam is a cheerful little guy, who loves to hang out with his people. However he was surrendered because he was very uncomfortable with the baby/toddler in his family, so a family with no kids/grandkids is what he would like. He has shown some resource guarding behaviour around his food and bed with other dogs, with stiff body and growls, but has not taken it beyond that with the Border Collies in his foster home. In fact he has allowed the girls to sneak in and steal kibble from his bowl if he has walked away from it. He is not so relaxed around the boys, but there have been no fights.He will alarm bark when visitors arrive, and has been said to do the same when out for on-leash walks. But his behaviour when he is free to investigate is to bark at them, sniff them thoroughly. He has lived with smaller dogs, but is not known with cats (he was indifferent to the foster home's pet chicken), He soon seems to warm up. He takes treats gently.The foster home has a routine where the dogs are asked to "go to your room" when visitors arrive, and he has been fine with that. Sam completed three levels of obedience when he was younger. He is clean in the house. He settles into his bed at night and there has been no need to crate him, although he is crate trained. He looks out the window and whines a bit in the car, but otherwise travels well. Sam would like a home where he is the centre of attention, and gets lots of walks. If he is reactive on leash or alarm barking at visitors, he needs a home that will manage and work on that. appropriately and with positive training
