Colby will get along great with your other dogs. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He's mastered his house-training etiquette. His vaccinations are already up to date.

Here's what Colby's friends at At Home Houston Border Collie Rescue think of him:

 My name is Colby. I am a short coat, cream/tan colored Labrador Retriever/ Heeler mix. I am a well adjusted puppy. I currently weigh 15 lbs. I will probably get to be about 45-50 lbs when full grown. My estimated date of birth is September 20, 2019. At such a young age I was a stray on the streets. Lucky for me I was rescued and now I am trying to find my forever home. I love to play with my squeak toys. I will need a lot of puppy appropriate toys. I am good with considerate children.
