Oscar

Male 4 years

Oscar is coded "blue" he is a 4yr old neutered tri coloured short coated collie cross. He was in a home for 14 months but was returned as he's snapped twice at visitors to the home. Was in another home but was returned after 3 weeks as he again snapped at two visitors when they were leaving the home did cause punctures to one mans leg.

Oscar is a very worried boy and will need time and patience and an owner that won't put him in situations he finds difficult.

He is housetrained, is good when left alone odd hours, knows basic commands, travels well, and interacts well with other dogs.

Would be better suited to a quiet household without lots of visitors and without young children.

Jasper

Male 5 years

Jasper is coded "yellow" he is a 5 year old entire black and white long coated collie. He came to us from another rescue after being found as a stray.

Jasper was rehomed but returned after being in a home for 15 months as he snapped at the male owner causing bruising after he took something from his mouth.

He is a shy boy and isn't used to being around children. He is ok with most dogs but doesn't like cats. He is house trained but isn't used to being left alone so this will need to be build up.

Jasper would be better suited to someone that has had a collie before as he does get worried in new situations and around new people, he is also very strong on a lead.


Alfie

Male 2 years

Alfie is coded "Blue" he is a 2 to 3 year old entire tri coloured medium coated collie cross. He came into our care from another rescue with no background information.

He was in a home for 10 days but was returned as he'd snapped at the owner, also snapped at a visitors hand when he tried to remove an I.d tag from his collar. We haven't had any problems handling him since he's been back in our care and he has also been very good meeting different customers and volunteers.

He would be better suited to a quieter home with older children only.

Alfie is housetrained, travels well and is good with other dogs. Chases cats.


Claude

Male 1 years

Claude is coded "blue" he is a 22 month old neutered black and white short coated collie he originally came into our care from his own home due to the family having a 3 month and a 3 year old child and Claude had snapped at the 3 year old when his father was playing with him, apart from this Claude had always been fine with people and a visiting 8 year old child.

Was in another home for 6 months but was returned. His owner had taken him to training classes where she had been given bad advice regarding handling him which broke down the relationship and trust between herself and Claude resulting in him biting her through fear.

Claude is a friendly chap and although seems to enjoy being fussed he needs an owner that understands what he has been through as he is now worried being handled in certain situations such as having a collar put on or being groomed.

He is housetrained, is good when left alone for 4 hours, is fine with other dogs, travels well and knows basic commands.


Bailey

Male 5 years

Bailey is coded "yellow" he is a 5 year old neutered tri coloured medium coated collie. He came into our care from another rescue after spending 6 months with them. Originally found as a stray.

Although he settled quickly around all staff members and has been fine with us handing him, when introducing him to new people he has been a little worried, more so around men. Bailey may be better suited to a quiet home without lots of visitors, young children or other dogs.


Ghost

Male 1 years

Ghost is coded "Blue" he is a 17 month old neutered white and black medium coated collie cross. He originally came into our care via another rescue as his owner could no longer care for him reason u/k. Rehomed but returned after 1 day due to him "mounting and mouthing" the owners.

He is a friendly boy but gets anxious quickly which has previously resulted in the above behaviour although he no longer does this since being neutered. He will need a patient and understanding owner than can give him the time he needs to settle into a new home.

He is good with other dogs, travels well, is housetrained and likes to play ball. When he met our resident cats he was worried by them. Will sometimes lunge at passing traffic when out walking.

Ghost may be better suited to a quiet home possibly without other dogs or young children as he seems to struggle to settle in a busy environment as his adrenalin levels just seem to heighten and he then can't relax.


Beauty

Female 8 years

Beauty is coded "yellow" she is an 8 year old neutered black and white short coated collie. She came into our care from another rescue after her owner relinquished her and another dog to them, reason unknown. She then spent 2 months in another home but was returned as she snapped at the 9 year old child when he fussed her when they were all seated on the sofa, apart from this one occasion Beauty had been great with both children in the home.

She is a confident friendly girl and apart from the above incident has been friendly towards everyone she's met. She is housetrained (although in her last home did have the odd accident) has been fine when left alone for 4 hours, knows very basic commands and travels well in a car although does sometimes bark at lorries.

She wouldn't live with another dog or cats and when out walking will lunge at traffic.


Marty

Male 2 years

Marty is coded "yellow" he is a 2 year old un-neutered tri coloured medium coated collie. He came into our care from another rescue. We are told his owner relinquished him after he grumbled at her young child. Marty was kept tethered outdoors and his owner had several children that kept teasing him.

Marty can be a little shy when meeting new people and due to his history may be better suited with children over 13 years old.

He is good with most other dogs and is clean and settled in his kennel.

Will need to be secured when travelling, may be better in a crate that can be covered as he does get worked up by traffic passing by.

Chases cats and will also lunge at traffic when out walking.


Jack

Male 1 years

Jack is coded 'Blue' he is a 15 month old neutered, tri coloured border collie. Jack was brought in from his own home as when he was playing in the house and ran into the door frame hurting his leg his owner rubbed it and he snapped at her face catching her on the lip.

He is a shy boy and will need time to adjust to living in a new home, may be better suited to a quieter environment without young children or lots of visitors.

Jack is housetrained, is ok being left alone for odd hours, travels well and knows basic commands.

He can be a little nervous around other dogs so would benefit from socialising with calm non reactive dogs. Does sometimes lunge at traffic when out walking. Wouldn't live with a cat.


Sam

Male 3 years

Sam is coded "yellow" he is a 3 year old entire tri coloured medium coated collie. He came into our care from another rescue after being found as a stray. He then spent 2 weeks in a home but was returned as he snapped at members of the family.

He is shy boy so would be better suited to a calm home without young children or lots of visitors. He is housetrained, crate trained and has lived with a cat.

When out walking he does lunge at motorbikes and cyclists. Although ok in a vehicle is worried.


Sparkie

Female 4 years

Sparkie is coded "yellow" we are told she is 4 years old but does look older ? neutered black and white short coated collie. She came into our care from another rescue, was a failed working dog.

She is a shy girl who is not yet used to walking on a lead, and will need time and patience to gain trust in people and to adjust to living in a home environment. May suit someone that wants a dog but isn't able to exercise them much as Sparkie seems content being in her kennel and spending time in outdoor enclosure as she is still very reluctant to go for a walk.

She is good around calm dogs but can snap at those that pester her.


Kreemy

Female 4 years

Kreemy is coded "yellow" she is a 4 year old small sized tri coloured neutered short coated collie. She came into our care from another rescue so we don't know her background.

She is a shy girl and is very submissive so may be better suited with children over 8 years old and is good with other dogs.

Kreemy would need to be walked in quiet areas once in a new home to gain confidence.


Rooney

Male 4 years

Rooney is coded "yellow" he is aged as 4 years old on his passport but is possibly older 8yr ? he is a neutered tri coloured long coated collie cross. He came into our care from another rescue, we don't know his history but they said whilst with them he had been good with people and other dogs.

On arrival to us he was a little worried being handled and did grumble when staff member looked at his teeth so may be better suited to older children although since then has met several different people and has been friendly towards everyone. Out walking he tends to ignore other dogs but in close contact his behaviour is variable often being ok but has also snapped. Does chase cats. We don't know if he is housetrained but he is clean in his kennel.


Jack

Male 4 years

Jack is coded "yellow" he is a 4 year old entire tri coloured short coated collie. He came into our care from another rescue after being found as a stray.

He is a little shy being handled by strangers so may be better suited with children over 10 years old. He is good with other dogs but the previous rescue said they had to feed him away from the others as he had issues over food around them, but this may have been due to him being so underweight.

We don't know if he is housetrained but he has been clean in his kennel whilst in our care.


Ragi

Male 3 years

Ragi is coded 'Blue' he is a 3 year old entire, tri coloured border collie. He was transferred to us from another rescue where he was relinquished by a farmer as he wasn't suitable to work. Was in a home for 1 month but returned as bit the male owner on the hand:

1st time man was giving Ragi a treat and he bit his finger (this may have been an accident as he grabbed the treat)

2nd time man lent over his wife to get a cup from the table and Ragi jumped up and bit his hand.

Ragi is a confident friendly boy and has been fine towards everyone he's met apart from the man he lived with but due to the above incidents we wouldn't rehome him to live with children under 12yrs old.

He is housetrained, loves to play ball, knows basic commands, travels well and is good around other dogs.

He wouldn't live with a cat and is food possessive


Danny

The previous rescue said whilst in their care he had been a little worried by the lead and on one occasion did "mouth" staff members hand when she went to remove it.

On arrival to us although a little shy being handled he was fine having a lead put on and off and was ok when staff member handled him gently around his collar but because of the above information he may better suited with children over 10 years old. He is good meeting other dogs out on a walk.

She is a friendly girl and should be suitable to live with children over 6 years old or maybe younger if they are used to dogs. She mixes well with other dogs. Fawn will need a secure garden as whilst with us almost cleared a 6 foot fence.
