Tuco is a handsome young Border Collie mix who LOVES people and dogs. He's a love bug and always jolly! Though he loves his canine pals, Tuco would probably fare best being the only apple of your eye.
In true BC fashion, Tuco is extremely smart and loves to use his mind & body. He is very treat motivated, eager to please and therefore easy to train. Tuco has mastered the following commands: “Sit”, “Down”, “Watch-Me” and is working on “Shake”. He is fully crate and house trained. He has great leash skills and is mastering sitting at the heel position when his human comes to a stop.
Tuco loves to snuggle up and watch a good show whilst stealing a snack or two of some freshly popped pop-corn. He also enjoys a little quiet time in his crate with a frozen PB Kong. His ideal home should understand and appreciate the sensitive nature of herding dogs and therefore be willing to be a fair and patient leader to ensure he thrives.

If you’re looking for a smart, energetic and loving dog that will adore you and follow you around as if you were the greatest thing since frozen PB Kongs - Tuco just might be your guy!
