Meet Chevy! 

Chevy is a sweet little guy who had been living on the street all alone until a Scout's Honor volunteer was able to help him. Chevy had been living under a truck for a while (it was a Chevy) while a Scout's Honor volunteer was working to gain his trust. He kept going every day to feed him and give him some attention. The business near where he was let him come onto their property and provided him some shelter.  Unfortunately, because there was a busy street nearby, sweet little Chevy got bumped by a few cars when he was out and about and lost a few teeth as a result.  Luckily, he did not sustain any significant injuries, and just needed to eat and get a bath. 

Chevy is an awesome dog , loves other dogs and loves to play !  Chevy is a high energy dog, but is also very smart and alert. He needs A LOT of exercise and positive reinforcement, but will pick up very quickly on what you are teaching him. He would be a great dog for agility or flyball!!  As long as you keep him busy and challenged he will impress you with how well he can learn things. He just wants someone who will give him the direction, attention and structure he wants/needs. He would make a great dog for an active home with NO kiddos.  Kiddos are just too unpredictable for this guy.  He also needs a home that understands how to properly introduce him to new people and watch his cues.  Chevy can be very protective of his people and area, so proper intros are a must.

True to his Kelpie breed, Chevy likes to herd and run and play
.  Check out this VIDEO of him just having a grand time running - look at those turns!  
Kelpie's are unique problem solvers and will find a way to do whatever he deems necessary.   Chevy fits these traits to a T, and anyone who knows and loves the herding breeds would just adore little Chevy!!  He's a real catch!!

Chevy is up to date on vaccinations, neutered and micro-chipped.
