Gregory and his wife are both new US Army recruits and are both attending basic training from 6/21/2021 – 12/1/2021.  The couple are hoping to find a great foster family near their home in Ocala, FL, or in Oklahoma near their family, for their two border collie mixes, Dexter and Sonny.

Dexter is a 1 year old, 60lbs, neutered male Border Collie mix.  Dexter is microchipped, up to date on his vaccinations, flea/tick prevention, and heartworm prevention.  Dexter is crate trained and working on his leash manners, and he knows commands for sit, stay, come, up/down (for furniture), bed (for crate), heel, drop, get the ball, are you hungry (he will go to food bowl), lay down, shake.  Dexter is good with other dogs but doesn’t have much experience with cats or young kids.  Greg says, “Dexter absolutely loves tennis balls. His “job” at home is to go get the tossed ball either inside or outside and will do that until he passes out or he is told to come lay down. His day is never complete unless he is “productive member of society” by making sure that ball gets returned. He is also super independent. He can lay outside without supervision for hours and be perfectly content (until its ball time!).”

Sonny is a 2 year old, 35 lbs, neutered male Border Collie/lab mix.  Sonny is up to date on his vaccinations, flea/tick prevention, heartworm prevention, and he has been microchipped.  Sonny takes medication for environmental allergies, and has dietary restrictions as well.  Sonny is crate trained, working on his leash manners, and knows commands for Sit, stay (+extended), get back, down/up (for furniture), come, heel, drop, lay down.  Gregory says, “Sonny has a warm, cuddly personality but also loves to play and be given all the attention. He specifically loves searching for lizards and frogs to play with in the back yard, even if they aren’t there.”
