Could you be a Collie companion?

Border Collies were originally working dogs helping shepherds around the Scottish Borders so it’s no surprise that they are intelligent, athletic and love to be on the go. Collies tend to love the outdoor life and usually need a lot of mental stimulation as well as exercise to be happy and healthy.

These are some of our Collies looking for homes from Dogs Trust Loughborough.

Abbie is an 18-month old lively, energetic girl who is looking for a family who are as active as she likes to be. She doesn’t like to be left home alone too long and it may take her time to settle in to her new home life but she’ll be a wonderful companion when she’s found her paws. She would like to be the only pet in the home and can live with young adults.

Six- year-old Bearded Collie Bertie is very intelligent and likes to keep his brain busy! He prefers to take his time to get to know people but he is super loyal when he has developed a bond with you. He is great with dogs too and would happily share his home with a canine companion. He is very enthusiastic about training and doesn’t mind being left alone for a few hours.

Chloe, who is seven, is an affectionate girl who is looking for a calm, quiet family who can spend time with her and help her gain confidence. She likes to be with people and though she can be worried when being handled, she loves company. Chloe will make a great companion for someone who is active and enjoys long country walks!

Eric is extremely intelligent and loves a game of fetch! This six-year-old is looking for a family who will be willing to continue his training as he loves a mental challenge too! He can be a little uncomfortable meeting new people so would prefer an adult only home with few visitors. Once he has put his trust in you he is very affectionate and will make a loyal companion.

Two-year-old Jack can find the big wide world a little daunting but he always greets you with a wagging tail and loves to please his two-legged friends. He needs a patient family, and can live with older teenagers, who will help him develop his social skills with his canine companions. He needs to be the only pet.

If you are looking for a dog that is incredibly intelligent, extremely active and has boy band looks, then six-year-old Logan is the dog for you! Logan’s ideal home would be in a rural area with easy access to lovely quiet walks, and he’d prefer his home to have a maximum of two adults, few visitors and no other pets.

Four-year-old Willow is a sensitive girl who thrives in the company of people so she would like her new family to be home 24/7. She is currently in a foster home and is making really good progress with her training. She can live with young adults but would prefer there to be no other pets in her new home.
