Ramone, 48 pounds of Love~Adopted

Can I give you a kiss?

Marjie Wolfe sent me a photo of this pup, and at first glance, I said… “that’s a puppy!”  The shelter said he’s 2 years old.  I was dumbfounded.  The wonderful Olivia Frost, a fantastic photographer, volunteered to pick him up and bring him to me.  When she opened the door to her car, there sat 48 pounds of gorgeous.  At first, I thought of Noah, but once I got to know him, I thought of Titan.  It matters not, because I was right, this big boy is about 12 months old.  He’s ready to rock, he’s everything a real Border Collie is supposed to be.

So we take him to the vet, and what I loved the most is hearing everyone that works at Val-U-Vet say, “Oh, look at the puppy!”  One quick look at his teeth, and it was confirmed, this big guy is just a baby.  I was busy at the counter doing paperwork when Sarah asked if she could take a doggie cookie from the community bowl.  I then heard my Sarah say, “Sit!”  And he did.  Then Sarah said, “Shake!”  And he did.  Then, Sarah said “Drop!”  and he got confused.  Well, I hate to brag, but…. she lowered the cookie to the floor, lowered her body, and he sank down to the floor like a pro!  I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.  Why would someone give up a trained dog?  I suppose I’ll never be able to answer that question.

I'm so Happy!

Here’s the deal, this guy is ready to learn, easy to train, smart as a whip, and full of energy.  He will NOT be a couch potato!  If you want, he can probably get your newspaper for you, and if you give him time, he might be able to read it for you too.  I can see him do just about anything you want him to with the right training, motivation, affection, and yes he IS food motivated.  I bet he could swim if you want him to, chase down a frisbee, or compete in agility.  He would be happy as a lark living on a farm, or loading up in your jeep for an adventure!  Did I mention he’s great in the car, and loads up in his crate on a dime?  Okay, that’s enough bragging for the day… Updates coming soon!  And Thanks Marjie and Olivia!!!

1 Happy Family!

09/11/11 Update: Ramone has been adopted by Chris & Mark Blackwell. It wasn’t long ago that they lost their heart dog of old age, and they have been watching TDL dogs for several months now. For various reasons, the timing wasn’t right. But this time, Mark saw Ramone, and asked Chris to call us! Like Holly always says, be patient, and the right dog will be there waiting for you. Ramone is going to have a few acres to run and play, his own pond, and an Aussie next door to keep him busy! Loxahatchee, Florida… make room for Ramone!  To see updated photos of Ramone, please visit his photo album on Facebook!
