UPDATE 3/25/21 (written by Sigrid): 

Blake thought he was just cruisin' around and checking out the scene, but he ended up at animal control waiting for someone to claim him--no one did.  This clean-cut looking 1½ year old Border Collie/Coon hound (DNA revealed) came to Almost home in October of 2020.  His coat is a painting in black and white with expressive touches of bronze. Upon first meetings, Blake shows a bit of timidity, but once he knows you is sweet and spirited.  With his handsome looks and loving nature, he was adopted quickly.

Recently, the sad adopters needed to return him because he was too playful rough (nipping and scratching) with their grand kids, causing the children to be afraid. This was a difficult decision for his caretakers as they said he was  well-behaved in the house and lovable with them. They loved him.

In their home, Blake had a large, confined area of underground fence and enjoyed being wild and crazy in the yard, sometimes tearing up the landscape for a little for fun.  They said he was a good car sidekick and didn't mind if you were near his food or chew toys.  They also let us know that Blake can play over zealously with other dogs who may not enjoy such roughhousing. These caring folks made sure he was kept up to date with flea-control, heart-worm preventative, and kept him in shining good health.  They helped him get his skinny side up to the nice 53-pound weight he's at now.

At first, coming back to Almost Home seemed to confuse Blake, and he was constantly waiting at his door.  A little tilt of his head and a tentative tail wag is hard for us to resist—we always want to go in and give him some love.

The best home for Blake is one with no children under 14.  A securely fenced yard is a necessity (he will honor an underground electric fence).

Blake needs to be with active people who will keep his mind and body occupied and who will use positive training methods to teach him boundaries.

Are you a person(s) who is looking for love and excitement in your life?  Blake is a sparkler, ready to light up your heart.

NOTE: All animals are spayed/neutered as soon as practical after arriving at our facility unless there is a medical issue that may cause a delay or they are too young to be spayed/neutered.
