A BC in danger of being PTS/Portland Oregon


Recommended Posts

This came across a Yahoo group I'm on. Not sure if anyone can help. I'd be willing to assist in some way but I can't take him in.

15 month old neutered male Border Collie was brought into my clinic today for

euthanasia. The DVM who saw him convinced the owner to give us a couple days to

try to find him a new home. He is great at home and at the clinic, and with his

housemate cats and dogs.

 

However, he is apparently very leash reactive and lunges at other dogs and kids,

has never actually bitten, but the owners have had it with him. He sounds like a

great prospect for Agility, herding, or other performance with someone who

really understands BCs and can work with his reactivity. He only has till

Thursday to find a prospective home, so please contact me ASAP if seriously

interested, or know a rescue willing to take him and work with him.

Is there a reason they haven't tried Multnomah County Animal Services or any other shelters? I've met and dealt with the MCAS people and they are great.
