From the Foster:
Brady is a great sidekick, best buddy! He is a sweet, people-friendly dog who loves to go for walks, run in the yard, and snuggle on the couch. He's house trained and is making great progress with his crate training. He doesn't like to go in it, but once he's in he settles in after some initial fussing - as long as he can't see you! If he can see that people are around he will fuss because he wants to be where the action is! He does just fine left out of his crate and hasn't been destructive to anything - except chewies and stuffies! Because he is a herding dog with strong instincts he does best with older, considerate children. After a good long walk, Brady LOVES to snuggle up on the couch or sleep with you in your bed all night long.
Brady is selective about his dog friends. Although he gets along fine with our resident border collie mix and they play together well, he has also been very unfriendly and aggressive with other dogs. He will do best as an only dog and with someone willing to work with his reactivity to other dogs out in the world. He also can be protective and will bark at passersby - especially if they have a dog with them! He has never shown any aggressive or reactive behaviors with people.
Brady is a fantastic, high-energy dog who will best as an only pet in a home with a fully fenced yard and no shared walls.
