Moses, all grown up

01/24/13 Adoption Update:  Moses was born on January 18, 2011 and we adopted him on April 18, 2011. He is just the best dog. Still puppyish in some of his behaviors, but doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. He may lick you to death, but never, never hurt anyone. He loves company, especially if they are the canine variety. We’re trying to set him up with play dates with dogs that are his size and bigger. The little dogs get too defensive and aggressive. In fact, when he encounters a dog that’s smaller than he is, he gets down on belly to try to make himself their size. He’s amazing. He’s our boy.

We did get him some training, so he knows his basic commands – sit, stay, down, off, come and he stays close to us. He won’t run away. He can walk off leash a lot of the time when we’re out in a field, but won’t leave our side unless sit’s to chase the stick. But, he’s always on leash when we walk in the neighborhood.

He’s a border collie, Catahoula mix. He just celebrated his 2nd birthday. He has brought us so much love and joy – words can’t express.

History:  Moses is a three-month-old Border Collie puppy who has come to us from Hall County Animal Shelter in north Georgia. When I saw his little face in the shelter photo, my heart just broke. He reminds me so much of Odo, a puppy that I fostered around Christmas. Like Odo, he is black and white with beautiful brown highlights running through his fur. His fur is thick and soft, making him look like a little teddy bear!

Moses is the smallest of the puppies that I am currently fostering, but that doesn’t stop him from playing hard. Granted, he usually ends up on the bottom of the puppy pile, but he’s good with that as long as someone is playing with him! lol

I think that Moses would fit in to almost any household. He doesn’t seem to have any issues, and he is happily crate trained! We’re still working on the housetraining, but clearly that will come in no time at all. All this little fellow needs is a family make his life complete!!!

I haven’t been successful in getting a good photo of him that shows his brown highlights, but I’m still trying! All of his photos are in his photo album.

Moses is being fostered in Winter Park. If you are interested in adopting him, please review our adoption process, then e-mail



April 18th Update:

Moses has been adopted by Marilynn and Win.  They are going to have so much fun together, in both Bokcelia and Indiana!  What adventures they will have!!!
