Colm is a quick learner and has mastered sit and stay and is working on drop. He’s also learnt to sit and wait for his dinner! He is still learning to walk well on the lead. Colm isn’t food aggressive, and is very food motivated! He’ll do anything for food!
Florence has a luscious black coat with 4 white socks and a bright white chest. Flo has lovely expressive ears and a very long tongue. She has lovely white teeth and is approximately 1 year old.
Florence loves to go for walks and she certainly has learnt what that word means! She loves to run and run fast – but she has excellent recall and stays very close to her master. Florence is good on a lead and due to her working dog breeding, would benefit from daily exercise and obedience training. She is a clever lady and would love the opportunity to spend more time with her new family.
Florence sits quietly in her Foster Mum’s office and sits quietly at the local café.
Florence is extremely well behaved, fully toilet trained, quiet at home with the occasional protective bark if there is a dog at the perimeter.
Florence LOVES children and families and looks longingly at prams and families. Florence is very much looking for a family to play with her and love her endlessly. She is very happy to have kids nearby and patting her. Florence will happily sit on your feet or even in your lap and fall asleep on you.
She is a loving and loyal, calm and gentle dog who will enhance anyone’s life endlessly. She can’t wait to meet you!

Phoenix is an 18 month old kelpie x who has a whole lot of love to give and enjoys nothing more than to be by your side. Phoenix is the ultimate snuggle bunny!
He is a quiet boy who loves his foster brother and other doggy companions. He has showed no interest or prey drive with horses or chickens, but he is curious around cats and would need watching around cats that aren’t used to dogs.
He walks beautifully on the lead with a harness and is learning basic obedience, but he would benefit from more training.
Phoenix is great with older children and he would love a forever home with a family who will include him in their daily lives, with walks and play time and lots of cuddles.

Ben is very placid and calm 3 year old Border Collie. He has such a beautiful soul. He is EXTREMELY gentle and quiet. He absolutely craves love and affection!
He knows how to sit and follows commands easily. Ben is very happy and easy going. He loves coming inside at night for special cuddles. He is toilet trained, so he’ll let you know when he needs to go out.
Ben is extremely good with other dogs. He has lots of fun playing with his foster brother Max.
He is fascinated by cats and needs to know where they are at all times. He has just started to chase them too so he would be best suited to a house with no cats.
He is not very active, not like a normal working dog breed, so he is happy to cuddle or sit and your feet and relax! He would also be a great travelling companion.
Ben will be perfect for a family with children of all ages. He is very very gentle and will sit and let anyone pat and cuddle him. He loves to be showered with affection! Ben would also be a great companion for elderly retired people too as he adores company which would be perfect for someone who is home all day.

Brady is a very smart dog who needs a dedicated person with border collie knowledge. He seems as though he needs to be on a farm and does a brilliant border collie stalk! This behaviour is not appropriate in our environment (shelter) and he may get himself into trouble one day.
He is highly food motivated and well trained already, and always willing to learn new tricks. Brady does not like other dogs and has shown aggression to other dogs at a very short distance, however we are hoping that it is only this stressful environment which is causing him to react this way.
He needs to be out working or with someone that can put the training into him and keep him entertained. These breeds don’t cope well in kennels so he needs to get out of our environment and into a foster home with someone who has border collie experience, or even a farm!
