Shep

Border Collie

Sex M
Age 4 yrs
Home needed Experienced, active

Shep is a gorgeous 4 yr old lad.  He is still looking for his furever home. He was rehomed but returned to us due to his behaviour escalating from reacting negatively to passing people and traffic through the window of the home to these behaviours being transferred to outside of the home.  This is something we are working on but any family wishing to adopt Shep must understand that this is an ongoing training process and they must be willing to continue to work on this issue, quite possibly with a behaviourist.  Ideally someone with experience of this type of behaviour, definitely someone with experience of the breed and is 100% committed and can demonstrate understanding of the need to mentally and physically stimulate will also be considered.  Shep has so many good qualities – he is loving, fun, playful, very smart, knows basic commands (when focussed!)  His favourite things are squeaky toys!  Shep can walk alongside other dogs once he has been carefully introduced to them, but as he can be quite selective on who he likes and dislikes, he would be better being the only dog in the home.  He cannot be let of lead in public areas.  He cannot live wth cats or rabbits.  He would be fine to live with sensible children over the age of 10 yrs.
