Jinkins is a 5 year old, 45 lb. neutered male in Cleveland, OH.
This is the hardest thing I have considered. I guess it’s a cry for help and leap of faith. My p artner and I are looking towards surrendering our 5 year old border collie Australian cattle dog mix. We rescued him 5 years ago from a puppy mill posing as a rescue.
He is such a happy energetic guy. He is so smart. I don’t want him to be put to sleep and my prayer is we can seek help to ensure it doesn’t happen. It kills me and is breaking my heart to have to do this and even to be writing and considering this. I have to write this all out because I honestly do not know how else I would get though this.
We have had him since he was 8 weeks old. He is very smart and handsome. He listens well and is house trained. He has his shots, micro chipped, neutered and up to date with all his vaccines and medications for heart worm and ticks. I believe he has five or six months worth. He has to do the two separate pills not the all in one because it causes seizures. He eats a cup of dry food in the morning around 6am-8am and a cup at night between 6am-8pm. He has been going to in the dog house for about a year or 2. He doesn’t really snuggle but he can get snuggly at times. He has no dental issues. He is 45 pounds and a handsome black and white with perfect symmetry almost like a little face mask and an adorable smile.
I am a nurse so I work 12-16 hour shifts and am on call. There seems to be issues when I am not home and as much as I wish I was I can’t be home all the time. He has nipped and bitten a few people only when they have reached over our fence or if he thought we or he were in danger. No hospitalizations or stitches required. He just recently got in a altercation with the dog next door and bit his nose through the fence. Again, I wasn’t home and my partner wasn’t watching him. I am not blaming the dog or my partner but it seems I am always at work with this occurs. He shouldn’t have anxiety with my partner as he too has been with him since we picked him up 5 years ago.
He knows commands, sit, come, stop, go to your crate. He is so smart and such a fun guy. He loves the metro parks and to run. On the leash he knows stay close, run, slow down. He learns so quickly. He loves the car, water, hoses, running, jumping and loves loves loves to play fetch.
I just am praying for a smooth transition moving forward. My goal is to just provide him with a great, happy, fun filled life. I’ve seem to exhausted all my resources.
