Glen 's a young boy at approximately 2 - 5 year(s) old. We are still working with Glen but he could be rehomed to continue his training with someone used to dogs with a strong instinct

Glen is a lovely dog and is good with people but for the first four years of his life he's been allowed to chase and to run off. He has a very strong instinct but now knows that he can look but he cannot chase. He does know how to walk on a lead, he can be clean in his pen and he is very loving. When there are no distractions eg cars, sheep, etc he is really loving.
Glen can only be homed on the condition that that he is either on a lead or a long training line but is not let off the long line. He has had far too long being able to run off when he's wanted and if lose and he sees or scents something he will be off. Please do not inquire about Glen if this is condition you are not prepared to accept.

Adoption process:
1, please email your address and post code, number of people in your home, number of children at home or visiting, other dogs or pets in the home, hrs of work during and after Covid.
2, When we have received this information you can make an appointment for a visit to discuss adoption, the Trust's rescue policy, fill in application forms and discuss what kind of dog you need. Please note at this stage you are not visiting to see a dog.
3, Any subsequent visits will be to see a dog that may be suitable. We will know if the dog is the right for you but your decision to adopt will only be accepted after you have a 24 hour break away from the Trust.
4, Following visits will be to get to know your dog or to arrange a training session prior to taking your dog home.

Border Collies are not 'pets' they are highly intelligent and very sensitive companions. We are proud of the way our rescue dogs respond to the training we do with them to prepare them for their new homes. Our work is the foundation and we ask all potential adopters to be aware of the hard work involved in the first months of adoption. They don't come perfect they need your time and patience.
