Robbie is a 6 year old tiny sheltie who proves good things come in small packages! He is about 21 pounds of pure affection who is looking for a medium to low key energy level forever family.
He loves to sit next to you on the sofa and have his belly rubbed, loves to play with plush toys and is not a chewer. He is good with children, adults and other pets. However, he would prefer to be the only “Pillow Prince” in the home. He gets along with multiple dogs in his foster home but really seems to enjoy his 1-on-1 time with his foster mom and this is when his charming little personality really seems to shine.
Robbie does like to play but in moderation and won’t wear you out. He walks well on a leash and knows how to sit but is lacking on other basic commands. He will go out an open front door if he gets the chance so his new family will need to be mindful. Fortunately he doesn’t run away and will come back when you call but initially darts and doesn’t look where he is going.
His previous owner indicated he didn’t do well in a car but he has been fine with his foster mom and travel. He is completely housebroken and goes to the door to let you know he wants out and comes back to the door and barks when he wants in.
Robbie does need a fenced yard to exercise and eliminate safely as confining him on a leash for extended periods makes him very vocal.
He loves to walk in silence but, if you are standing in the yard waiting on him to potty, he gets impatient.
In the house he is unusually quiet for a sheltie and only barks when someone comes to the home, during loud thunder, etc. He doesn’t like storms, but isn’t in a panic nor does he drool. He is just an absolute joy and will be a blessing to a loving home.
