Looking for a loyal companion? Meet Ferdie, a 1 year old lab/border collie mix. He arrived in New England and quickly settled in with his foster family.
This boy was found in TX as a younger puppy and taken in by a good samaritan.
Ferdie gets along great with the family cat and shows his gentle nature around their toddler granddaughter. He plays well with their dog.
Both dogs can get rambunctious but Ferdie will stop quickly with cues from his foster mom.
The buddies will go outside independently in a fenced in yard and Ferdie has shown no escape behaviors. He consistently will come inside when called.
Within a few days, he learned to loose leash walk in the neighborhood and has shown success with off leash hiking on wooded trails. He is a good rider in the car, gets in the car right away and is a great passenger.
He will be a great travel buddy.
Ferdie will shadow his foster mom on the trails as well as in the home. Best of all, he will snuggle on the couch whenever another human can accompany him
Ferdie can be shy around men when approached but enjoys sitting on the couch with them to watch New England sports. (He does watch TV).
If you are looking for a sweet dog that is comfortable in the crate, housebroken, loyal and has the intelligence to learn, please take a look at Ferdie.
