Needs • Children should be 8 + ( a little jumpy for little ones)
Meet Cricket, the lovebug! At 1 – 2 years old, this 42 lb adorable Pointer/ Border Collie mix is well-mannered and socialized, but still has plenty of puppy energy and curiosity to keep learning, playing and bonding with his adoptive family and canine friends. Cricket is house and leash-trained, knows basic commands (come, sit, stay, down), and is learning new tricks in his foster home. He’s extremely intelligent, responsive and eager to please; he only has to be shown or told something once and he’s got it down!
What’s most endearing about Cricket, other than his bi-color eyes (one blue, one brown), and his unique markings (his black ear and matching black, nubby diamond-shaped tail are truly special) is his cheerfulness. Cricket LOVES everyone and every dog he meets! In Cricket’s worldview, all of life is a playdate with the special people and canine friends he meets. He’s most happy playing fetch or tug of war with his foster buddies, learning new tricks, hiking in the woods, and going for rides in the car. And while he’s got plenty of energy for learning and playing, he’s also perfectly content to lie at the feet of his humans when it’s time for them to do their work. All he really wants is to be close to the ones he loves.
Cricket is especially easy-going and will do well in most homes. As he’s still young and playful, he will thrive in a home that can provide both mental and physical stimulation. Cricket is good with other dogs and with children who are dog savvy, but can be a bit much for young children so would do best in a home with children 8+. While he might like a canine buddy to romp with, Cricket is also happy to be with his humans and would do well as the only dog in the family as long as his humans give him the love and affection he craves.
If those humans are you, you will enjoy a lifetime together with an incredibly devoted and affectionate furever friend and best buddy, Cricket.
