General Disposition: psychotic....or sleeping...its kind of a toss-up
Other: Oakley is well, a special dog that takes some getting used to...he is just VERY anxious (part due to us doing a bad job at raising him, but when we got him at 6 months, he was anxious then too). He is a rather high-maintenance dog that is VERY easy and in my eyes, perfect...IF and only if you know how to deal with him. Oh, and he is just a tad too smart for his own good...
Name: Jude Nathaniel
Breed: Border Collie
Age: 4 Months- birth date July 09
Weight: 20 pounds at present- will probably be 38ish
Acquired from: Breeder
Nickname(s): Judey, Judiper as a joke...
Favorite toy: His raccoon - his first toy and still his favorite despite upgrades
Favorite treat: Cheese and chicken
Favorite sleeping spot: My lap. He just started to get cuddly lately.
Likes: Digging, drinking water, dog parks, wrestling, golden retrievers, clicker training- especially his box routine, Bully Sticks, Pig hoofs
Dislikes: Gettting things wrong in training, me petting other dogs, not being the center of attention (we are working on it!)
General Disposition: Jude is just starting to get cuddly now but for the most part he is independent, brave, and investigative. He is very thoughtful, often stopping to think before acting. He's always popular at the dog park among the dogs, and seems to be equally people and dog oriented- maybe a bit more dog oriented. He is a bit serious for a puppy- focused on work when we're training- but he is very well mannered and mature I think.
