Hi, I'm Ben!

I'm a young neutered male black with white Border Collie / Mix.

BEN: Border Collie mix, young adult, high energy, very intelligent, approved for children over age 16.

I'm a handsome young boy who was found as a skinny stray, but I'm putting on weight now that I'm at the shelter. My owner never came to claim me so I'm hoping to find an adopter who will really love and care about me! I can be a tad shy at first but once I'm comfortable I am very friendly and eager to please. Like most Border Collies, I have a lot of energy and need a job to do. What kind of job? Anything from herding sheep to taking long walks to playing catch with a Frisbee! Herding breeds are active and intelligent dogs who aren't well suited to just sitting around all day. I will benefit from obedience classes and I should be a great student because I'm such a smarty pants. I'm approved for families with children over the age of 16 because I can be "mouthy," which means my owner didn't teach me not to mouth people's hands. My shelter caregivers say I have a huge amount of potential and they think I'll be an excellent companion for an active and attentive adopter. If smart and athletic dogs are your cup of tea I'm ready, willing, and able to be your best friend and loyal companion! 

My adoption fee is $200.00.
I have been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and I've received routine treatment for internal and external parasites. I have tested negative for heartworm.
