Meet Motley, a handsome 4-year-old border collie and lab cross who is searching for a special someone to help him blossom into the confident and charming pup he’s destined to be. Motley came to us without much life experience and tends to feel nervous in new situations or around unfamiliar faces. He’s seeking a patient and gentle soul who can provide the nurturing environment he needs to build his confidence and trust. With a little time and a lot of love, Motley is sure to emerge from his shell and show his true, wonderful colors.
Motley’s ideal home would be with someone who embraces an active lifestyle. Regular walks, playtime in the backyard, and perhaps even some hiking adventures could be just what this guy needs to thrive. His future paw-rent should be both active and patient, understanding that Motley might need a bit of extra time to adjust. While Motley has so much love to give, he may not be well-suited for a home with children. He thrives in a calm and quiet environment, and the presence of energetic youngsters will be overwhelming for him.
If you’re an understanding and compassionate individual seeking a loyal companion to share your life and adventures, Motley is eagerly waiting to meet you. Together, you can embark on a journey of love, trust, and lasting friendship.💕
