Our little secret

In our failure to blog recently, we have also failed to make a proper introduction... let's remedy that: meet Duncan! He's our latest little addition! He's a little border collie mix who has been living with us for just over a month now. His family lost their home and ended up at a no-pets homeless shelter. They tried to hide Duncan in a little crate outside, but the poor guy had no food or water--or room to move around. When he was discovered by animal control, the officers took him to the shelter for care.

Unfortunately, Duncan was very fearful at the shelter. He scared people with his intense border collie eyes and growling. When the shelter folks realized he couldn't be adopted out directly, our human brought him home. We were dubious at first--especially Theo--but we've come around to accepting him. Still, we're just helping along until he goes to his forever home. Prospective adopters can inquire about him through the Delaware SPCA.

Duncan's done a great job learning house rules, and he totally fits in now. He's even become better about meeting new people and other dogs. He can still be kinda scary, but only because he's very vocal. He talks big, but we know he's really an okay guy. He's also really fast and has springy feet! The human thinks he'd be a great agility dog for someone!
Look at us, we're the Collie Crew!!

It's Collie overload! Maybe you need a Teacup Saint Bernard to add a bit of variety. Duncan is sure a sweetie pie. Glad to hear he is adjusting well.
