Adoptable Dog of the Week- Dani

PetGuide logo

Smart and sweet, this cute gal will keep you on your toes! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Dani, a 3 year old Border Collie mix from Chestertown, Maryland. She is spayed, up to date on her shots, housetrained, and crate trained. Dani does well with other dogs but needs a home without children and cats in the family.

Unfortunately, Dani ended up in the care of people who didn’t realize that a young puppy will be a handful, so she bounced around a bit before ending up in the shelter. Even so, the previous experiences didn’t leave a mark on her character, as this pooch is as sweet as they come! Dani is described by her rescuers as pleasant, biddable, and a lovely companion, but she needs a quiet home with dedicated owners to really thrive. As a Border collie mix, she is very smart and eager to find work, so she’ll need someone that will provide training and regular exercise to keep her happy and healthy. 

Dani can be fearful of strangers, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have guests over without your pet being anxious- she is crate trained and will happily spend some time cozied up in a crate when you’re hosting a dinner or having a party. She is protective of people that she considers her family, so it’s best to have a strong personality in the family so she wouldn’t make it her job to herd and protect her humans. Dani does well with other dogs but isn’t a good match for families with cats or young children. Ideally, she’d be a pet for a single or couples looking for a four-legged companion for all their adventures.

If you think Dani is a good match for your lifestyle and vice versa, contact Humane Society of Kent County Maryland to learn more about her and how you can be the one to adopt this lovely doggo.
