Dusty is a happy, handsome Bearded Collie mix who is ready for his forever home. He is just 1 year old, almost at his healthy adult weight of 50 lbs, and he has that typical long, blue-gray coat with just a touch of red. Dusty is housebroken, crate-trained and is just starting to learn his basic obedience commands. He walks nicely on leash and he loves to ride in the car!
Dusty loves people, though he is shy at first when meeting strangers, but would do best in a home with children over the age of 12 due to his play style. He is a high Velcro guy who will follow his people everywhere. Dusty is also a medium energy boy who plays hard but has an off switch. He loves to go for walks, fetch a ball, chase the birds and lizards, and just run around the yard. Dusty also loves to play with other dogs and is always up for a good wrestling match! He would make a good companion to a playful female or submissive male dog that is around his size. But when all of this play is over, he is a great cuddler and ready to share the couch with you. Dusty also peacefully co-exists with cats!
The ideal home for Dusty is a medium energy household, where this guy can show you his excellent napping skills but that also has some fun and excitement each day. A fenced yard is important, another playful dog or two would be amazing, children over the age of 10 are welcome and cats have nothing to fear! Dusty will need continued training and very regular grooming, but you will be rewarded with many years of sharing your adventures with a true best friend. If Dusty sounds like a great match for you, apply today! Dusty is fostered in Richmond, VA.
