I was on the list for a litter of puppies from a fantastic breeder that were going to be bred sometime this summer. It was all planned, I was going to get this amazing puppy, its parents are both herding and agility stars, I was going to be able to be so successful with this pup... Then Jinx came along. His owner fell sick, he needed a new home. I couldn't say no. He came home with me. He wasn't at all what I was looking for, but now he’s mine (I guess that tends to be how it works with rescue, huh? ). He’s four years old, he’s turning five at the end of this month. I was told that he was high drive and very active... I’m not seeing that lol. Since I’ve had him, pretty much all he has done is sleep all day, and get up occasionally to snuggle. So I guess this will be a new challenge for me, because I’m not going to be letting him get away with sleeping all day. He’s going to be doing obedience, agility, tricks, herding... (well, that’s the theory ). I am so used to Chloe, who is very high drive, so teaching a dog who seems to have no interest in learning (or doing anything for that matter...) will be a challenge. His trick list is empty. He knows absolutely nothing. He doesn't even know how to sit or lie down. Not sure how you can have a border collie (or any dog for that matter) for 4 years and not teach him anything, but if it’s up to me his trick list will be expanding soon! Jinx has no clue what toys are, I don’t think that his old owner ever played with toys with him. Building toy drive is going to be a challenge, but I’m going to try! But he does have one thing going for him.. he’s absolutely adorable!! Picture time!!
