🐾 Dante is one of FOURTEEN dogs pulled from a hoarding case in Mississippi, where they all lived in an apartment together and after discovery, were subsequently surrendered to different shelters in MS. All fourteen dogs were severely underweight, probably in-bred, had urine-stained fur, and soft paws from never having been outside. Luckily, none of them were heartworm positive. Many were very timid upon rescue and NONE of them were house-trained, but all have shown themselves to be very sweet and loving dogs and good with other pups. Six went to our rescue friends at Border Collie Rescue and Rehab, while eight stayed with BCSAVE.
Dante is about 3 years old and 28 lbs. A sweet, active boy, he has discovered his absolute love of balls, often hoarding them on his bed. He is learning to fetch also, though his retrieving skills still need work. He is a confident and friendly pup, and while he loves attention, is not clingy or demanding. He is pretty much house-trained but does need more work on the leash.
