I'm looking for my forever home. Could you be my perfect match?

Are you right for Trigger?

Trigger is a lovely young chap who will benefit from going to live with a fairly active family that will take him out on plenty of adventures. Trigger could potentially share his home with another pooch pending a successful introduction and would benefit from his family continuing his socialising once in the home. He can live with calm secondary school aged children (14+). Any time spent alone will need to be built up gradually for Trigger as he is used to having company. Adopters will be asked to visit Trigger a few times before we start the process of home visits.

Is Trigger right for you?

Trigger is a beautiful 1 year old Collie x JRT who is looking for the pawfect home. Trigger has started learning basic commands and training but would like for these to continue to ensure a successful development. He will benefit from having plenty of fun activity games while at home to keep his mind busy. Trigger can be sensitive to noises so would prefer to have a quiet home in a rural area. Trigger is such a lovely lad who is quickly stealing the hearts of all his canine carers.
