BRONCO is a wonderful six-month old border collie mix who loves people and dogs. As a puppy, he can be easily distracted, but is still very eager to learn and please. He loves to play with other dogs, wrestling, chasing, and tumbling, and has no problem keeping up with the big dogs. He is respectful of dogs who do not want to play, and is just as willing to plop down on the floor and relax with a smile on his face. He often comes to check in, and then goes back to join the pack. We love watching him running in his bouncy, puppy way, with his too-long legs.

He’s also doing very well at sit and stay!
