Flint came to us from Border Collie Rescue in Oregon. He's a real love bug. Gives some of the best hugs in the house! He has great food and toy drives...and is always on the go. Sound familiar? He's not serious like Bash and definitely has his very own intense style.


He is sometimes thoughtful in new situations but quickly masters things and is super-confident the next time around. Physically, he is incredibly athletic and well put together. There's no doubt that he's still got lots more growing up to do...and quite a bright future ahead of him!  This little guy  is blossoming into a simply amazing dog.
