Dogs needing homes

Dougie

Black and white, medium coat, male 10 months old

 

Dougie is a young failed farm dog, he is good around other dogs and very biddable. Dougie is a friendly chap who will need some training which he will relish and flourish into a stunning young man. Dougie is a ideal candidate for flyball or agility as he has the energy to go and go and go, he is eager to learn and his recall is very good. He is great around other dogs and horses and bonds very quickly with people. He does need a rural home where he can burn of that collie nutty energy.

Kobi ( Reserved )

Chocolate and white, smooth coat, male, 10 months old

 

Kobi will soon be coming into rescue as he is not getting the stimulation he requires. He is a very active dog and comes from working stock so has a natural herding instinct. He will need a collie savvy home with no small children. He will also need a rural home with lots of space around him. He is housetrained and knows basic commands but he is going to need a active and knowledgeable home.

Fidget

Tri-colour, long coated, male, 9 years old

Fidget likes lots of walks, playing with tennis balls, frizzbie, lots of belly rubs and rounding things up.
Dislikes windscreen wipers on cars, vacuum cleaners, young children and babies ( doesn't understand them ) but brilliant with older children and adults .Also not too keen on going in water. Despite his age he is a strong dog and really pulls on the lead so he would either suit an active family or a older person looking for a companion who doesn,t need endless walks but you will have to keep throwing the ball !!

Scooter

Black and white, smooth coat, male, 6 months old

 

This is adorable 'Scooter'. He is from working stock and needs a rural home with plenty of space so he can burn off his energy. He will need to have someone around who can be with him most of the day who has the time and patience to train him into a well behaved adult dog. Scooter needs a collie experienced owner ,who,too, has plenty of energy! He will require lengthy walks ,or some form of outdoor activity to relieve him of boredom. Scooter has typical collie instincts and is a determined but biddable character He will need firm but gentle coaching, to become a most wonderful companion. Until a suitable home is found for Scooter he will be staying ,where he can be seen,with his foster family in Northamptonshire. Please contact Gill ,only if you feel you have what Scooter needs.

Dottie ( Reserved )

Tri colour, short coated, female, 10 months old

 

Dottie is the one at the front with a dotty nose !!

 

Dottie is a very endearing little thing who lacks confidence and is nervous but not in a nasty way. She really needs a understanding home who can help her build trust and ideally with another dog as she quickly attaches herself to a canine friend, All she needs is time and patience with the right enviroment to help her flourish. She will also need to be spayed when old enough under the terms of our adoption contract.

Stanley

Black and white, short coated collie cross, male, 2.5 years old.

 

 

Stanley is sadly coming into rescue due to a change in his families circumstances. Stanley loves walks and runs and rarely gets tired. He is very gentle and kind mannered to those he trust and knows and loves a cuddle, he still tries to climb on to our laps to snuggle up. He has grown up with their son Rufus who is now 6 and has never shown any negativity towards him or their new baby although he is a very bouncy energetic dog who is inclined to jump up for a hug. He loves his chew toys and balls  (not shoes and owners things). He likes to bark to let us know someone is at the door. He is playful and bouncy, full of excitement and fun. He knows commands such as sit and wait and has good recall, he does pull on the lead a little so they have used a shoulder fixed harness and this works really well. He travels well in the car, he is toilet trained and responds well to kennels if you were to travel for a week.

Branco

Branco is NOT at the rescue and will not be coming into us. If you feel you can give him a new home please contact the owners direct...contact info at bottom of his story.

 

 

Branco is a loving, full of character Border Collie cross originally rescued from Crete and brought back to full health.  His rich white coat and with caramel swirl is really different to a lot of Border Collies.  He loves running in parks, in heaths, bramble patches and over fallen trees.  He is the first one to jump into a river or lake if given the chance.  He even runs in his sleep!!   His favourite park at the moment is Richmond Park because he can run in big open fields, through running streams and bark at deer.  He is perfect for a young family as he loves small children and will follow them all day around the house to make sure they are OK.  His favourite treats are big butchers cow bones, roast chicken skin, beef jerky and drinks more water than any other dog we've seen!  Branco does get anxious when he is left on his own but with love and affection, he quickly builds a bond with anyone.  He is a regular feature at our local pub (he loves pubs full of friendly people waiting to scratch his head).  We took Branco in when he came over from Crete because his original rescue family could not longer take him in and our friend who rescued him had a change of personal circumstances which meant she could not longer look after a dog.  We've kept Branco since September 2013 but being a full time working couple we cannot provide him with the kind of life that we feel he best deserves and would thrive in.  Branco would be ideal for a young family or elderly couple would want a loyal companion and have access to ample open space.  We will miss Branco dearly, we want to give him the best life and hopefully hear about his adventures in years to come."
