Dr. Pepper – Smart, Sweet, and Fun ~ Adopted

Dr. Pepper was rescued from the same shelter in Melbourne as Justine Time.  Wonderful people.  Adriana saw him and just had to get him out of there!

Smart dogs seek shade!

He’s estimated to be about 3-4 years old, and heartworm negative.

He’s very intelligent, thus the Title of his name!  Although he’s playful with the ball and Frisbee, he’s not an in your face Border Collie, he’s quite calm.  He’s doing well with Adriana’s dog Gidget (Magpie) and he’s really enjoying the pool!When he went to the beach, everyone just fell in love with him.  I mean, gosh, who wouldn’t?  With those beautiful blue eyes, perfect border collie markings and joyful spirit, he just makes you want to smile!

You can visit his photo gallery on Facebook!

May 29th Foster Update:

Playing Frisbee with Gidget

Dr. Pepper is pretty intense, very focused. Took him to the beach and all he cared about was fetching the Frisbee, which was really nice because he’s so focused I not need to worry about him wandering off. He has been very tolerant with Gidget however when he’s had enough he lets her know. He can catch a Frisbee and anything you throw at him, he’s just not fast so he can’t catch up to it when you throw it far. He needs a home that WILL EXERCISE HIM. He’s very obedient and knows sit, stay, lay down, shake or paw.  He’s pretty quiet but loud noises such as a vacuums or blenders make him go into a frenzy.. not a bad one; he just either attacks the vacuum or he grabs a toy and starts going nuts with it until the loud noise is gone.  It’s actually pretty funny. He’s a lover but I need to stress that this boy needs an active home. I feel like he could totally do agility.   He’s so handsome. 🙂

Okay, like Dr. Pepper wasn’t already wonderful enough, Adriana just told me that he swims underwater!  You’ve got to be kidding me!  He is clearly not a couch potato and will need an active home, but boy, is he ever going to be one awesome addition to the family.  Here’s a neat little thing too ~ he likes being outside so when he is wet, he’s content staying out there until he dries off.  If you had just finished steam cleaning your floors like I did, you’d think that was the best news ever!  lol

June 5th:

I can’t believe this dog hasn’t been adopted yet!  He is so beautiful, has so much personality!  Adriana told me that there is no doubt that he lives to please his people.  He’ll go to the ends of the earth with you.  Especially if you have a vacuum!  When I saw this video, I couldn’t stop laughing.  I know you’ll love it too!

Dr. Pepper was adopted last week but returned today.  It turns out that he is afraid of both thunder and fireworks.  Given that his adopting family lives right by SeaWorld with their nightly firework display, they decided this was more than they could handle.  We have already gotten Dr. Pepper a Thundershirt which is working wonders, and have him in a foster home that is working diligently to help him confront and overcome his fears.  The good news is that this last week told us something we suspected but did not know ~ Dr. Pepper loves kids!  The family has a 10-year-old boy and all week he and Dr. Pepper were inseparable, spending the days together, mostly in the pool.  We knew this was a great family dog and now we have proof!

06/25/11 Update: Dr. Pepper was adopted today, photos and details coming soon.

    I think he is just beautiful, and just what I have been looking for. How is he with kids? Any idea on that? I am going to run this by my husband and get back to you.
