Age: 2 yrs old
Breed: Border/Aussie mix
Riker enjoys long walks through the mountains, rough housing with his foster sister and cuddling up on top of his foster mom for naps.
Riker is a 2 year old Border Collie/Aussie mix with plenty of energy to hang all day. He gets along with dogs of all kind and enjoys anyone who’s ready to play tag. He puts up with car rides so long as there is a reward for him in the end (a big field to play catch and tag in), is a dream on a leash and he knows his basic com…mands, with a little bit of encouragement.
Riker is looking for a home with a canine sibling to call his own. We believe he’d do excellent in a home who’s interested in dog sports. He’s bounced clear over his foster mom in hopes of catching a tennis ball!
He is a Velcro dog and will follow his human anywhere. Riker is a lover but he does need time to adjust to new people, particularly men. He loves his human so much that he tends to guard his foster mom when new men come around. Once he realizes they’re not a threat, he does warm up to them and ask for pets.
Riker has not been cat or kid tested, but given his nervousness with new people we would definitely not recommend children under 6. As always, we recommend mixed sex pairings, so he would do best in a home with a female dog.
Riker is neutered, UTD on vaccines, and is microchipped. He is currently fostered in Boone, NC and his adoption fee is $300.
