More about Me

High Energy  High Energy



Meet Jake, who is a 1 year 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 willing to learn which is why we are looking for an EXPERIENCED HOME that has trained young dogs previously and understands collies.

Jake is very friendly and affectionate as soon as he realises you are his friend. He is generally confident but can sometimes be nervous about meeting new people, and may bark at them. We are carefully introducing him to new people by using positive methods to help him with his confidence. We will expect his new owner to continue using reward based training methods.

He has an amazing personality and learns new things very quickly. He has an active mind and will need to regularly exercise his body and brain cells! Jake has super recall when in our large paddock, and this is something that a new owner could develop when walking him in quiet locations. Jake will need a home with a large secure garden.

Jake can get very excitable and noisy when he meets another dog, and this is something we are working on and continuing to assess. As he appears to be so reactive and stressed around other dogs, we will currently be looking for a home in a rural or exceptionally quiet location, with no other dogs in the home. He is a lovely boy with people he knows and trusts, and is a joy to spend time with.

Jake has never lived with cats. Jake needs an active, adult home that will be able to fully dedicate their time to him. He has so much to offer for an experienced owner. Jake has started to have short times away from our kennels with a foster carer so please watch this page for further updates on how he is developing.

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.
