Frankie's a young boy at approximately under 1 year(s) old. Frankie is only young but he is sweet and is willing to learn.

Frankie has lived with small children in an area where there was a lot of traffic. He became wound up and start chasing cars. He had issues when he came to us but he responds really well to training. He is good on a lead and loves to be stroked and massaged. We have had him on a quiet road and he is not reactive but he will need a home where there is little traffic. He has not been a problem with other dogs but if he were to live with one it would need to be an older calm dog. Due to his past he cannot be homed with children as he still has a lot to learn and can't cope with being wound up.

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.
