Valentine is a 1.5 year-old, tri rough male collie. He is a little sweetheart at 55 lbs and he's pretty mellow for such a young dog, although he is playful. He is potty trained and he's fine with parrots, so we don't think he has a prey drive.

Valentine does get car sick and he is afraid of storms and fireworks and will find a place to hide where he feels safe. He came to us unsocialized with humans and dogs and is a little timid around people at first. He is fine around other collies.

Valentine is very inquisitive and seems to learn very quickly. Although we have been working with him at leash training, he still has a long way to go and is going to need time and patience with his training. Valentine has an unusual bark for a collie. He kind of woofs once, then does a howly type bark after that, but he is not a big barker.
