Border Collie
White / Cream

My Requirements:
-Kids 10+

This is Penguin, he lost his owner recently and is in need of a new home. Hes almost 10 and his vision is a bit off, but he gets by just fine. He may seem a little clingy initially, but hes just trying to make sure he can hear you until hes more familiar with the space. He does well with cats and dogs, but doesnt have too much play energy. Any kids at home should 10+. He adores his walks and is a breeze to handle on a leash. Hes got easy going personally, and is a quiet boy unless hes telling off his foster sister or asking to go out. He has had some anxiety at the adoption center (lots of activity), but has done much better in his foster home. 

Please note - we always take our animals back if for some reason it doesnt work in your home so we only adopt to the following Illinois counties: Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Will.

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
