Parker 02/13

Meet Parker, a 6-year old Border Collie. Parker is a sterling example of his breed, always ready for action and showing off his skills. He loves being able to play as much as possible, with his people and toys, though he may sometimes get a little rough. He doesn’t mean anything by it, he just can’t help himself at times. Parker would be more than happy to share a new home with dogs and older, rugged children who can handle his energy. He would prefer not to live with cats. Parker is a very fun fellow who will make a great addition to the right household. If you’d like to adopt Parker then stop on by the shelter today to meet him.

The Animal Welfare Society is fortunate to have volunteers who take adoptable dogs through the obedience classes.  They also spend quality time, playing with, walking, and running the dogs. Here’s what some volunteers had to say about Parker:

“In true border collie fashion, Parker likes to work. He responds well to training and feeds positively off praise and attention. He is a focused, quick learner, and is easily redirected even when placed in a room with lots of commotion, dogs, & noise. He is friendly, obedient, and fun to work with.” Laura

“Walks really well at brisk pace with a short leash.” Shanna

“Quick, motivated learner!” Cathy
