Senior male border collie
Oran is smooth coated Border Collie with black, shiny, little prickly ears that stand up readily when at attention. One cannot miss the pink tip of his tongue that sticks out when he sleeps. He is of average weight and height for a BC with typical white and black markings. Really cute!He came to NEBCR when his former owners developed health problems and could no longer care for him. This is why at 12 year old of age, Oran finds himself in search of a new 'forever' home.He loves to play Frisbee, ball, kick the kong, and roll the basketball. Because of his age he does all of these at a slower pace than a typical border collie but hasn't lost any of his enthusiasm. He is fond of playing a game of tug with the plush toy he stole from the Vet's office! He loves to go for walks or just loaf around the house with you. He loves his people and is quite affectionate. He is well house trained and crate trained. He travels well in a car either just looking around or laying down for a nap. He walks well on a leash. Oran has a great attitude and gusto for life. Always ready to play, to love and be loved! His adoptive family should insure that he gets plenty of exercise so that he can continue to improve and reach the potential he is capable of. A fenced area would be preferred. He is listed as special needs because of a bit of arthritis.
