Description

Freddy is a boy who needs a patient, touch as he is a nervous soul. He has come from a home with two other collies who we are told he was okay with, however he needed fed separately from them as he guards his food. Freddy is sensitive to his collar being touched and his lead going on, which may be a result from his past fears. He is getting more confident with this but his new owners must realise this will take time. Freddy does not seem bothered by livestock byuyt as he is working stock his herding instinct may come into action if he was to be off lead near them. Freddy has not encountered cats yet .We are told Freddy likes children and was affectionate with those he knew. However, as he is sensitive to touch, we would recommend extra care is taken if introducing him to children. Freddy is not used to busy places, instead comes from a rural background. He has been used to sleeping in his owner’s bedroom and enjoys a cuddle on the sofa too. Freddy is house trained but doesn’t enjoy getting in the car so will need help to overcome this. Once he knows, you he is a very affectionate boy.

History

Freddy was originally from a farm where he was left outside for long periods of time tied up. We are told he had a firm hand when he was younger so he is nervous of sudden movements and strangers touching him. He was handed in as the landlord would not allow Freddy at the rental property his owners were now in.

Re-homing Criteria

Freddy needs an owner who understands he is worried by touch and busy places. He will need help to overcome his fear of getting in the car and getting his collar touched. We would recommend a quiet home away from busy roads and lots of people. Freddy is currently on a diet and this will need continued until he is at his ideal weight again.

Homefinder Questionnaire

If you'd like to help rehome Freddy simply complete the Homefinder Questionnaire to get started.
