Batman is a sweet, energetic Sheltie / Border Collie mix who is ready for this forever home. He is 5 years old and has a long black and white coat with adorable panda markings on his face. He weighs about 52 lbs but should be about 45 - lots of walks and hiking will take care of that! Batman is house trained, crate trained, knows some obedience commands and is highly treat motivated! He likes to ride in the car and is learning to walk well on the leash.’
Batman loves people! He is a pretty high Velcro guy who wants to be with his people constantly. He loves being a part of the “action”... even if the “action” is just playing with a toy while you work at home. He enjoys long walks and hikes, and likes the company of other dogs so far though he gets so excited when he meets them that we have to remind him to take it easy. He was an “only child” prior to coming to us so is still learning to share and tends to resource-guard his food. He loves toys and will play by himself with them too - he is quite gentle and non-destructive with them. He has not been cat tested.
The ideal home for this funny, handsome guy is a family who will make him a part of the action and make this sweet pup the center of attention. He does not do well around small children, so children above the age of 12 are required. He really loves to be with his people and prefers a calmer home with lots of exercise, and does just fine walking on a leash (though he is still learning his manners). He does have some skin irritation that is currently doing much better with a commonly available, limited ingredient diet. Another dog would be okay though isn’t required. He loves to walk and run so an active person that wants a dog to join them is key, as well as someone who wants to do some training with this guy because he LOVES to learn. If Batman sounds like he was made for your home, please apply today! Batman is fostered in Washington, D.C.
