Prince was part of five Border Collies surrendered to the Abilene Shelter when his owner passed away. Initially, BCSAVE was told Prince was 10 years old but vet exam indicate that Prince is no more than 4 to 5 years old. Prince also is much more socialized and better adapted to being a house dog than the others he was rescued with. He is about 48 lbs and so far, has shown some herding tendencies (wants to chase donkeys, cars, etc…). He is a moderately active dog otherwise, and gets along with most other dogs. He also does very well with kids and other people.
Unfortunately, Prince is also heartworm positive and has started the fast kill treatment protocol. He can be adopted with a heartworm contract, so interested adopters are encouraged to submit your application today to start the adoption process.
