#9452 Corvus

Medium-size, Male, Adult Border Collie,
Energy Level 3

Energy Level 3 - Enjoys walks, mental stimulation, and some playtime.

Meet Corvus! He’s sweet, happy, chonky boy 💙 He’s guessed to be a spaniel or border collie mix, but he’s a pretty chill guy. He’s around 6 years old and a medium-sized dog, but at 55 lbs, he has some weight to lose. He was returned to OPH through no fault of his own, and he’s back searching for his perfect family!

🐾 Everyone who meets him loves him. No joke!
🐾 He’s housebroken, no accidents in the house so far
🐾 Crate trained. He knows to go into his crate when asked. He goes into his crate on his own during the day for naps and sleeps there at night
🐾 Loves to be surrounded by toys! He likes toys of all kinds: balls, stuffed toys, anything squeaky, bones, etc. He keeps himself entertained playing by himself but is also happy to play with his humans 🥰 He seems to like running and fetch but doesn’t have a lot of stamina - chonky boy problems!
🐾 He’s friendly with people and dogs. He gets a little excited around other dogs - he wants to play!
🐾 He’s a great snuggler!
🐾 A+ head tilter
🐾 He’s between a 2-3 energy level
🐾 Not a big barker so far. He may join in with his foster brother when he barks, but doesn’t usually start on his own. But he will let you know when he thinks he deserves some treats or pets!
🐾 He may have a bit of a prey drive but doesn’t seem to pull too hard on the leash to get to something. He tends to walk on the end of the leash and really only pulls to greet other dogs. We’ve been working on this and he’s been responding well to training!
🐾 He’s a smart boy! 🤓 He learned commands like sit, come, and crate super quickly and is learning paw and to heel on walks!
🐾 He’s a shedder but he loves being brushed
🐾 He was around cats at the vet office and they reported that he was good with them
🐾 Loves everything except fireworks, thunderstorms, and stairs (but only stairs indoors, he’s fine on our outdoor stairs)

Corvus is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. He has special needs and is not suitable in an apartment, condo or other urban setting. Corvus is currently being fostered in Baltimore, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
