This handsome, young and highly active boy is Xander.  He arrived in our care as an unclaimed stray.  He has settled into kennels well and has shown us what a wonderful boy he is. 

Xander is currently kennelled with another dog and if he was to live with another dog, we would recommend another active breed that enjoys running and playing.  Xander can be a little boisterous with other dogs at times, but he is learning how to interact with them in a more suitable manner.  He enjoys the companionship of his kennel mate and they can often be found snuggled up on the bed together.

Xander, being an incredibly active Collie Mix, is going to require people who understand the amount of exercise and mental stimulation a dog like Xander requires. If he can’t burn off his energy, or use his brain, he will become frustrated.  He loves problem solving and is highly motivated by food which is great as it means feeding times can be fun, interactive and stimulating for him, instead of eating from a bowl each meal.

Xander has speed and athleticism and would do really well at agility or even at canicross, he would also benefit from having a good sized, fully enclosed garden that he can burn off some of his energy, as he will need work on his recall before being allowed off lead in open spaces. 

If you are looking for a dog to keep you active and keep you on your toes, then look no further than Xander, he has the potential to be a truly amazing dog with just a little time and effort put into his training.

Can you offer this lovely boy a loving and permanent new home?
