Mika is a very handsome 2 year-old Border Collie/Hound mix male who found himself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could take his time finding the perfect new home. While we don’t have any history on his life before he got to the shelter, we’ve found this boy to be very sweet and loving. He gets along great with other dogs and loves to wrestle and play chase in the snow with his fellow foster buddies. He would certainly enjoy having a canine buddy in his new home and a yard with a secure aboveground fence so he could play to his heart’s content. Mika is a little bit shy and nervous in new situations. He looks to establish a new routine very quickly and once he settles into that, he does very well. Mika keeps his crate spotless so ought to be pick up the house rules quickly in his new home. He can be a little scattered on the leash right now so will need a strong handler and some daily practice as he works on his leash skills. This boy is so worth the effort though as he appreciates all the kindness that comes his way. He’s truly going to blossom in a loving home with his new family. Mika weighs about 43 pounds but needs to gain a few more to reach his ideal weight. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized.
