We are reluctantly having to rehome our dog, Dash.
He is a beautiful short coat Border Collie and he has been with us since he left his mum at 8 weeks old. He was brought from a working farm and had working parents.
Dash is in an incredibly intelligent, energetic and determined young dog with strong Border Collie instincts. He would spend every waking moment playing and running about given the opportunity.
Dash is crate trained, he does has food intolerance's but we have found a diet that suits him well and he thrives off it. Dash knows all basic commands such as sit, leave, off, come, roll over and down but will need a strong owner to keep his focus.
Dash has been brought up with children in the house although he isn't a cuddly dog and when he isn't playing he prefers to be left alone so I would suggest only a home with older children or none.
Dash requires an experienced Border Collie owner who is able to provide a strict environment with plenty of space to run. Dash shows aggression with other dogs on walks and has possessive type aggression with toys and food. The latter is being worked on with excellent results but the work will need to continue. Dash is more suited to a rural environment as he shows signs of nervousness when walking on busy roads.
He will not be rehomed to anyone who isn't experienced with the breed or working dogs.
