Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre
A Male Black and White Border Collie who is age 1 year
Dovecotewell, by Glencaple
Dumfries and Galloway
Cap is a very nervous farm collie who has not been socialised or given a gentle approach previously. Since being in the centre we have helped him grow in confidence but this is a slow process as he is still learning to trust people. Cap enjoys the company of other dogs and this has helped his confidence levels. He does however show some redirection towards them if he is frustrated so if he is to share with another dog it must be a non-confrontational dog. Cap has never lived in a house and has only ever known a farm barn so needs time to adjust to new environments and experiences.
Cap’s owner took felt he was no use to him as he could not get him to work sheep.
We will only be rehoming Cap to a rural home with an owner who is understanding of the needs of very nervous ex farm collies. He requires an owner who is gentle and patient and will give Cap plenty of time to grow in confidence and help provide him with reassurance and guidance. Cap needs a home without children.
If you'd like to help rehome Cap simply complete the Homefinder Questionnaire to get started.
