In shelter Dog

Austin, TX, 78704
Pet name:
Border Collie
Sitter Needed: 9/30 - 10/5

Introducing Widget, a handsome, house-trained Border Collie mix. Widget does not live in his foster home with other dogs, but he is playful and interested in dogs he sees on his walks. This means he may be able to live in a home with other dogs.

Widget is working on his leash-training skills, and sometimes pulls, but his foster said he is 70% there. Widget is crate-trained and can be left on his own inside the crate while you go out running your errands.

Widget is working on his obedience training skills. He is a good listener and responds immediately to no and stops doing whatever he is doing. Widget seems to be a quick learner and responds very well to praise and treats!

Widget loves all humans. He wants to greet them and can sometimes want to jump up and give them a hug. He is extremely sweet and loving with people.

Widget likes affection and likes to be near you. He comes by, says hi and likes to lay near you. He loves to be petted but isnt overbearing.

Widget loves to go on walks and sniff around the neighborhood. He loves to play with his toys and will play tug-of-war with you but is also happy to chew his toys and entertain himself. While he can be energetic and playful, he loves to take naps and lay by you as you watch TV. 

Widget is easygoing and will fit well with most people. Widget would enjoy another dog pal to play with, but he is fine on his own. Widget is a loving boy who loves nothing more than laying by your side.

Do you have room in your heart, and a place in your home for the sweet, endearing Widget? Come meet Widget today!
