Meet Sir Elton vonBiscuit!
Age: 4 years old
Breed: Toy Australian Shepherd
Gets along with: people, dogs, cats
Location: Richmond, VA
Sir Elton vonBiscuit is a gentle, very sweet little toy Australian Shepherd who is ready for a special home. He is about four years old, weighs in at just at 15 pounds, and has a soft, long tri colored coat. He walks pretty well on a leash and likes meeting new people. He is expressive and can be very silly when he gets the zoomies.
Biscuit, as his foster family (mostly) calls him, is friendly with new people who treat him gently, and bonds very strongly with his new family. He is sometimes a little nervous around men. He is generally a lower energy guy and likes one or two walks a day along with some adventuring around the backyard, but does occasionally like to play with other friendly dogs. He needs another dog in the home to help him gain confidence and learn the ropes. He is a clever little guy and highly trainable - his foster family has already taught him several tricks! He also doesn’t mind cats.
Biscuit is good with other dogs of all sizes and is a peaceful coexister. The ideal home for this little guy will have another friendly dog and an owner ready for lots of snuggles and hopefully some training to help bring out the best in him. Children over the age of 12 are welcome - this little guy is not a fan of young children. He does have a bit of separation anxiety at first when left alone and barks, but settles down after ten minutes or so. This guy can’t be in a crate because it makes him extremely anxious, so someone willing to confine him to a bathroom if needed is helpful. He also LOVES to be groomed and his still growing out his coat after someone sadly had it shaved, so someone that enjoys brushing out his fine coat is very welcome. He is very food motivated so training is a breeze! He is house trained, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and heartworm negative.
