Influx Of Border Collies Awaiting Their ‘Furrytail’ Ending With Dogs Trust Shoreham

Influx Of Border Collies Awaiting Their ‘Furrytail’ Ending With Dogs Trust Shoreham

Dogs Trust Shoreham is appealing for forever homes for six stunning Border Collies who have left staff at the Sussex-based rehoming centre baffled as to why they are being overlooked by visitors. Katie, Seamus, Rye, Theo, Jack and Flame are all very different in their temperaments and personalities, but they all have one thing in common; they would all make a ‘pawfect’ companion in the right home.

Among the four-legged line up is six-year-old sensitive soul, Rye, who has a huge amount of love to give. Found as a stray, Rye has been with the charity for almost six months. Rye is in need of a loving, adult-only home with patient and understanding owners who will take things at his pace. Although he is unable to live with cats or small furries, he would benefit from living with a fun, active canine chum who can help show him the ropes. Rye dreams of a peaceful, rural home with a garden to call his own.

Also arriving as a stray, one-year-old Katie has not had the best start in life. Having been in kennels for almost nine months, Katie can be fairly shy at first until she gets to know you; however, her friendly character doesn’t go unnoticed. Although Katie is gaining confidence, her delicate nature means she would best be suited to a peaceful home where she can settle in at her own pace. Preferring to walk in rural areas away from traffic, this sweetheart would also benefit from residing with a four-legged friend. Katie would like her own garden, with a family with children and visitors over the age of 16, minus any cats.

But not to be forgotten are the other four members of the awesome ‘paw-some’:

Sweet Seamus is looking for a special someone who has a similar disposition to his own; someone with a laid-back lifestyle who enjoys the quieter side of life. Once a bond has been built, Seamus loves to show his affection and he will be right by your side for a cuddle.

With piercingly beautiful eyes, Jack is a gentle chap who certainly doesn’t act his 10 years as he can be very puppy-like and playful. Also seeking a quiet life in a peaceful home, Jack would be most comfortable sharing his abode with teenagers aged 14 plus.

Once Flame develops a bond with human chums, his sweet and friendly character shines through and he is lots of fun to be around. Despite his bouncy and active nature, Flame is seeking a calm and settled lifestyle, one packed with long walks in rural areas.

Super smart Theo loves learning new things and going for long walks. Also seeking a calm, adult home, two-year-old Theo loves company and would like his adopters to be around for most of the time while he adjusts to his new surroundings.

Tracey Rae, Dogs Trust Shoreham Rehoming Centre Manager, said: “We have a number of Collie crosses all desperate to find a home to call their own and they would make superb companions for families of experienced dog owners. Sadly, we are seeing an increase in breeds like Collies, being handed in when they become too much for their owners who have not considered the implications of owning a particular breed that requires a lot of mental and physical stimulation. Collies need regular exercise so it is important that we find owners who understand the demands of this breed and are in a position to offer a life-long commitment.”
