ChevyBasenji / Australian Kelpie / Mixed (short coat) • Male • Adult • Medium
Fast-forward a few years, Chevy is in boarding and loves other dogs and loves to play ! He 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. He would do best in a home that does not have a lot of new people coming in/out.
True to his Kelpie/Basenji 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! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L81s-TWX9SA&feature=youtu.be Kelpie's/Basenji's are unique problem solvers and will find a way to do whatever he deems necessary. True to these breed, he will also be fierlcy protective of his family (getting back to proper intros). Chevy fits these traits to a T, and anyone who knows and loves the herding breeds would just adore little Chevy!!
Chevy is up to date on vaccinations, neutered and micro-chipped.
