Bordeaux ARPH #13403


Are you looking for a lovable boy that is always looking to please? Then Bordeaux is the dog for you! Bordeaux, aka Teddy Bear, is 10 years old (DOB 7/07) and came to ARPH through no fault of his own. His previous owners had a change of lifestyle that he no longer fit into.

Bordeaux is a neutered large sized black tri Aussie. He came into his foster home with some extra weight, but has been working hard to get his figure back. Currently, he is approximately 74 lbs, but on his way to a svelte new figure. He is also waiting for his very pretty Aussie coat to grow back after being clipped. This precious boy is up to date with all of his shots, heart worm negative and received a clean bill of health from the vet. He currently resides in an active house with his foster mom, dad and 3 young adults. According to his previous owners he got along just fine with the 5 year old grandchild, but is not currently living with children. Also, living with him in his foster house is another Aussie and two cats who he sometimes likes to chase. Bordeaux is low energy, but LOVES walks and car rides. He also loves to have his belly rubbed when he lies down.

Bordeaux would do well with a home that had another dog and a mom and pop that would give him some exercise and LOTS of loving. He is crate trained and alerts his foster mom when he needs to go outside to relieve himself. He has done well working on commands like sit, stay, leave it, down, with me, come and off. He has gotten much better walking on a leash and is learning how to walk on a two dog leash with his foster sister. Mr. Teddy Bear is fine with ear cleaning and teeth brushing.

His best attribute is that he is willing to please, very social and a lovable teddy bear! If you are relaxing outside or watching T.V. he will be right at your feet. This love bug wants to have his belly rubbed when he lies down. He is a true Velcro Aussie and is looking for his forever home. Bordeaux is being fostered in northern CT.
