Fletcher was adopted in 2013 from the Wood River Valley Animal Shelter in Hailey, Idaho. Dr. Powell thinks he is about 5 years old now, although she secretly hopes he will never age. He is one of those few dogs that can smile, and when he does, it wrinkles up his nose and makes him sneeze - it's very funny and endearing. He's always been a sweet and mellow guy. Not knowing his background, she submitted a Royal Canin Witness genetic profile which revealed that Fletcher is a mix of Border Collie, Australian Shepherd, and Tibetan Terrier. It follows, as he is a good working dog. He loves to sit up in the lobby and watch people come and go, and is becoming increasingly confident in asking for treats from strangers. He's generally pretty quiet at work, but will come and grunt or nudge us at our desks if he wants to be given affection. Outside of work, he loves to go for walks with his dog friends and keep them in line with his mad herding skills.
