What kind of home would be best for me? Cinch is an active working dog who has never had the opportunity to be the dog he was meant to be and do the work he was meant to do. He was purchased as part of a breeder pair by someone breeding smaller dogs who did not realize how much border collies need. His life before the farm was a 10 x 10 chain link run with dirt on the ground. And not much else. Now that he's running the fields at Dreamweaver farms, he's beyond happy.
What is my personality like? Cinch longs for a job .He wants a job. He has the inate intelligence and drive of the border collie but no outlet for it. He looks at us and says "teach me," "mold me," "train me." He wants a person and a purpose. He gives hugs and loves to rub on his caregivers.
How do I act when I meet new people? Cinch is jumpy on people but it's all in a good way .He wants your attention. He needs to be taught so many things and the first is how to properly greet people. He will be a fabulous partner dog once he learns some manners. And did I mention he's eager to learn?
Tips and Tidbits: Cinch is in a run with his sister Addy. He will hike his leg and pee outside the run but not in it. He has never pooped in his run. We think he'll housetrain easily. We've not started crate training yet as he's got so much pent up energy we felt he was better off in a run instead of a crate. He's so eager to please we think he'll pick up the house training skill quickly. Cinch also needs leash training. He's a blank slate. We don't think Cinch would do well with children under 10 . We're looking for an adult only home or one with older dogs. We're looking for an adopter who has land and experience with this breed.
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
