Lad is a lovely 6 year old Border Collie who is looking for his forever home.

Lad is a very friendly boy but can be quite nervous and timid at times, particularly with loud noises.  He will need further training; Recall and lead work are essential as he is not very confident at close proximity and prefers to be further away, this may be because of his working background when herding sheep so he is more confident at a distance. He will need patient, understanding owners who are able to give him time to gain confidence and trust. He will also require regular grooming sessions and he has to continue to be toilet trained, which has already improved greatly since being here at the centre with the help of regular toilet breaks.

He needs lots of mental and physical stimulation due to the nature of the breed and his working background however be mindful of this when around livestock or any small animals.

We are looking for those who are experienced in owning or training Border Collies or dogs of a similar nature.

Lad’s ideal home would be 1 active person or active couple in a quiet household who are home most of the day with experience of his breed or of dogs with a similar nature. He can be rehomed with children 16 + and he can live with another dog depending on compatibility, not suitable to live with cats
