mbc1963 Posted July 27, 2015 Report Share Posted July 27, 2015 http://www.northeastanimalshelter.org/pets/gabe-2-99548/ My local animal shelter - Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA - was one spot where I went looking when I wanted to adopt a new dog. This guy, Gabe, was in the puppy room the first time I went. ADORABLE. I visited several times over a couple months, and asked the counselor why Gabe was still there. She said he had high energy and maybe some issues with nipping at kids. I said he was likely a border collie mix - and that explained the behavior. The last two weeks at basic obedience class for my new dog, the shelter has sent a worker wtih Gabe to help with manners. He's now much bigger - border collie sized - and full of energy. They've got him listed as a lab mix, but if I had to guess I'd say largely border collie with maybe something short-faced (Boston terrier or boxer grandpa?). He has the most adorable underbite. He is SO FULL of energy that even staying in class while another dog barks across the room is challenging. I feel so much empathy for him, stuck in the kennel in the shelter all day, never able to run or burn off his BC energy. Anyway - if anyone in the New England area is looking for a high energy dog who's probably a BC mix, this guy is worth a look. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
