Tristan

Tristan is a most lovable goofball.  He was a "foster failure."  He came into rescue and was placed twice, each time he was returned to the farm for less than stellar behavior.  Tristan was rescued from a home with 8 children.  He was crated for most of his first 14 months of life.  He is what I call an "over the top" kind of guy.  He can't just do something, he must SUPER DO it!  He'll not only catch the frisbee, he'll jump up, spin three times, land on his head and roll with the frisbee:)  He throws so much of himself into agility, it's scary!  He has some compulsive behaviors - shadow and sunspot chasing - that he seldom does anymore, but if he is put into a different environment, they start up again.  Even a patterned rug can get him going.  He can be diverted with a toy, but sometimes he'll just go off "into the zone" until you bring him back.

Guess which one is Tristan?
