Meet Luke - the 1-year-old Kelpie mix who's going to steal your heart. This high-energy handsome young man is all about the play. His perfect day includes playing with toys, chasing the lizards, some sit and chill time, and more play (did anyone say "ball"?). He is happiest when he can be around his people. Luke has a great off-switch as long as his energy needs have been met. And he's pretty amazing in a crate when needed.

Luke is working on social cues and learning to live in a home, as well as learning toy and food boundaries. He spent a great majority of his life in a crate as his previous family wasn't sure how to properly channel his energy. He's rocking his basics - is potty trained, and knows sit, come, and stay - and is working on leave it, down, and wait. A gentle leader is best when walking Luke for now, as otherwise, he does tend to pull.

Luke is currently being fostered with 3 foster siblings (various energy levels) and a kitty and loves sleeping with the teen in the house. He's met kids as young as 4 and adults as old as 67 and he loves them all. He'd do best in a house with a fenced yard and another high-energy friend. Luke is ready to love you to the moon and back - could you be his always and forever?
