Foster comments: Garth needs someone who knows the collie breed. He loves to play and needs mental stimulation, food puzzles, toys, to stay busy etc… He was moved a lot but has settled comfortably into his new home quickly.

Garth needs a very active family who is outdoorsy because he can get anxious if he isn’t doing something. He does not like the kennel at all. He is still working on house training but is showing signs of improvement. He needs love, patience and guidance as he craves attention and wants to be your sidekick.
