This 4- to 5-year-old neutered male Border Collie is focused, affectionate and is eagerly awaiting the next command or tennis ball. This is a breed that needs a job and Lance is out of work. He recently filled out a job application for “Loyal Family Companion” and is hoping to be gainfully employed in the near future. His job description includes sitting at humans’ feet while they read a book or watch TV, riding in the car, having his belly rubbed, shaking paws and acting silly. This 50-pound boy is too sociable to be left out in the back yard by himself for any period of time, but is so well-mannered that he can easily accompany his person anywhere – work, errands, visiting friends.

If you have an opening for a Loyal Family Companion in your home, please stop by the Dog Adoption and Welfare Group (DAWG) to interview Lance for the position. He accepts appointments on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 pm to 7:30 p.m., and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 pm. Other times by appointment. Please call DAWG at 681-0561 to schedule an interview.
