FOR ADOPTION: CEDAR is a loyal and loving roughly 5 year old and 60lb male Border Collie mix. He has spent the majority of his life chained to a dog house and came to us full of dread locks. The dread locks were an easy fix thanks to Jessy at Jessy's Dogtown Grooming in Smithers. Cedar behaved wonderfully while at the groomer and is much happier now that he is dread lock free. He will require regular grooming to keep him comfortable. The emotional baggage that comes with being permanently chained outside will take longer to heal. Cedar is nervous of new people and situations but if you're willing to take the time to gain his trust he is incredibly devoted and affectionate. Cedar loves to cuddle and is starting to want to play with our caretakers. Cedar is so devoted that he does get possessive of "his" person towards other dogs and we think he would do best as an only dog that has buddies to walk with on a regular basis. He is fairly nervous around indoor cats and curious of them outside, he could live with a cat but would be just as happy as an only pet. Cedar is very gentle with small children, as long as they understand to give him time to get comfortable with them at first meeting he would make a diligent babysitter. He has a medium energy level. Cedar loves to go out for walks and would enjoy accompanying you hiking or exploring but would also be thrilled to spend an entire day cuddling while watching movies if that is what you want. He has been 100% clean and non destructive indoors, he is quickly learning to walk well on a leash and is overall a well mannered fellow. Cedar is neutered and up to date on vaccinations and parasite control. Apply today at f you would like a chance to meet this sweet, handsome guy!
