Hello, I'm Goldie

About me

I'm unsure of new people and dogs, but one thing I love for certain is my tennis balls! They're my favourite toy of all time! Luckily we have some big runs here at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe so I have plenty of space to chase after them - the best place is the stream, any excuse for a dip! I'm a timid girl at first and it takes a while for me to build trust. But once I do my cheeky and playful side comes out. The Collie in me means I always want to be on the go and luckily my carers know the best way to tire me out is with a walk in the woods. I love snuffling through the undergrowth and seeing what I can unearth - it's usually a forgotten toy or two!

Why I need sponsoring

I originally lived at Dogs Trust West London with my littermates. I have had a home, but didn't cope very well because I'm so worried by people I don't know, and I was brought back. Life in West London was a little too busy for me, so my carers thought that life at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe would be better - and they were right! I love living in the quiet countryside with plenty of space for me to explore!
