Biography

Meet Torg, he is an Australian shepherd/kelpie mix about 5 years old and weighs 35 pounds. He is very smart with lots of energy. He knows how to sit, lay down, shake or paw, and wait. He loves to chase squirrels and play fetch outside, he could play for hours. Torg has quite a few quirks, some we have worked on, others we think are just a part of him. He does jump up to greet and to get close in order to smell you. He is ok on a leash, tends to pull ahead, but understands when you pull back.
Torg gets along with cats and some small dogs but not big dogs. He’s good with older kids, who have been around dogs before, but not inexperienced kids or toddlers. Torg has traveled in a SUV/truck multiple times with no issue. Recently he reacted aggressively after being gently disciplined for eating objects that were not his. That situation has created the need to rehome Torg. We are certainly able to explain more to serious inquiries.
