More about Me

High Energy  High Energy


Meet Jake, who is an 11 month old Border Collie with oodles of energy to burn. Jake has not had much experience of being left alone so will need owners who will be able to build this up very slowly. Jake is quite excitable but very willing to learn which is why we are looking for an EXPERIENCED HOME that has trained young dogs previously and preferably understands collies.

Jake is generally confident but can sometimes be nervous about meeting new people. We are carefully introducing him by using positive methods to help him with his confidence. We will expect his new family to continue using reward based training methods.

He has an amazing personality and learns new things very quickly. Jake may excel at a variety of activities such as agility, canicross or flyball. He has an active mind and will need to regularly exercise his body and brain cells!

We are still assessing how Jake is around dogs so please revisit this page for updates. At present, he can get very excitable and noisy when he walks out with another dog, but this is something we are working on and continuing to assess. Jake has never lived with cats. We feel Jake may benefit from an active, adult home that will be able to dedicate their time to him. He has so much to offer.


Want to find out more about Jake?

Please call 01228 560082 between 10.00am and 4.00pm, to speak with a member of our Small Animal Team.


On average, we have 400 animals come into our shelter every year. Please take a look at some of our dogs looking for loving homes and see if you can find a friend for life. Where appropriate, all of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. We also give each animal a behavioural assessment to identify their needs and help you find your perfect companion.
