MICK is about 2-1/2 years old and came in to TCCR’s care from an animal control shelter that found him as a stray. Although his owners were contacted that their dog had been found, they opted not to take him back into their family. Despite Mick’s strikingly beautiful blue merle coloring and happy-go-lucky temperament, it’s obvious that he’s a kinda-collie, and not 100% purebred. But he doesn’t know that and the collies in his foster home have adopted him as one of their own. Mick is a smart dog that picked up the household routine and learned basic commands very quickly. He is trustworthy indoors, there’s no inappropriate chewing or getting on furniture, likes getting groomed and is not a barky critter. He lives to play with people and other dogs. His picture shows him in that play mode, just asking for someone to join in the fun. Until Mick outgrows his boisterous, youthful enthusiasm, it would be better that he not be placed with frail or unsteady-on-their-feet humans or dogs. But if you’re looking for a very loving pet that can keep up with an active family.
