Shiloh loves to be laying between my husband and me either on the bed or sofa.

Since Shiloh has a lot of border collie in him, he's got some protector genes, so he doesn't like anyone to be "too close" to the house.

Favorite Toy:
Shiloh isn't big on toys most of the time. He really likes to chew on Sam's legs, though, so I guess that's his favorite toy!

Favorite Food:
Shiloh has a sensitive stomach so any treat he gets is his favorite food.

Favorite Walk:
Shiloh LOVES walks, he doesn't care where they are, so they're all his favorite!

Best Tricks:
Shiloh does this little jumping "dance" that's really funny when he's super excited! It's not really a trick but it's the cutest thing he does.

Arrival Story:
Shiloh was adopted through the group that I volunteer with but the woman who had adopted him decided that she couldn't care for him anymore. She was leaving him outside for 12-14 hours a day and he was digging out. When he came back to us, my husband and I fostered him and found out that he tested positive for heartworms (he had been negative when he was adopted), so we got him through his treatment and then decided that we would just keep him since he had bonded so much with us and Sam.

Shiloh is also a "tripod", having had one of his back legs amputated because of 2 separate incidents. When he came into the shelter, it was very obviously previously injured. He wasn't using it and it was going to need to be looked at. While at the shelter, one of the other dogs there attacked Shiloh, causing him to have to be taken immediately to the emergency vet, where they said that the leg was dead. That was all about 4 years ago and he's been run/hopping around our house and backyard, outrunning our lab mix and pug just fine!
