Hello! My name is Blaze and I am an adorable sable merle collie with a partial blue eye.
My last two years have really not prepared me for my current phase of life so I am looking for a patient family to help me find my way. You see, I spent the first 2 years of my life living in a commercial breeding facility where I spent a lot of time looking for love and not so much time bonding with my human kennel workers. Now that I have retired from the business, I want to settle down with a family and live the good life, I just need help adapting.
I have been very self-reliant so trusting that humans have my best interest at heart is a little difficult but I have started down that road.
I am a little reluctant to be leashed, but when I am, I am walking well and learning to enjoy time with my foster family. When I am off leash, I get a little startled and seek refuge behind a sofa, chair or other household item.
The one thing I have found similar to my former situation is going to potty outside. I am doing a great job on what you call “house breaking” but I haven’t learned how to signal that I need outside. Thus, a fairly scheduled home will give me the best opportunity to assimilate and thrive.
Little humans still baffle me, the running around, strange noises, leaving toys laying around and doors open doesn’t really gel with what I think home life should be so I probably need to be in a more sedate, quiet atmosphere.
I do love other canine friends, I haven’t met the things you call cats (so the jury is still out) and if I start to get overwhelmed I am great at retreating to my bedroom (or crate) as my foster family calls it.
Guys like me are a little more of a time and patience investment on the front end but we repay that investment with undying love and devotion.
If you think you can help me out please fill out our adoption application and let us know you are interested in me!
My adoption fee is $375 and I am being fostered in Norther WV.
