Meet Blue, a charming one-year-old Collie with a heart as big as his boundless energy.

Blue is a lovely boy with a unique set of needs. He has captured our hearts with his intelligence, playfulness, and loyalty. However, Blue requires a special kind of home and a family that understands his unique collie traits.

Blue arrived into our centre as a stray, who has clearly had a rocky start to life. Blue needs someone who understands his breed and can provide the guidance and structure he craves.

Blue is a sweet boy once he gets to know you, but initial meetings, especially with new people (particularly men), can be a bit intimidating for him. Potential adopters must be happy to commit to multiple introductions at our centre to help build trust and create a strong bond.

Blue has started muzzle training for vet visits whilst in our care. Patience and positive reinforcement will be key to ensuring he feels comfortable and secure during such occasions. Blue would benefit from continued socialization with the vet and exposure to new people in a controlled environment to help him gain confidence.

Due to Blue’s temperament and initial uncertainty around new people, we are seeking an adult-only home to ensure a stress-free environment for him. Blue will also need to be the only dog in the household as he is known to be vocal with other dogs.

Blue’s heart is won through playtime and tasty treats. His new family should be prepared to shower him with affection, positive reinforcement, and engaging activities.

Whilst in our care it has been observed that Blue has a natural instinct to herd cars, so a secure environment and lead control are essential during walks.

Blue already knows basic commands such as sits, gives paw, responds to his name, and has a reliable recall. His intelligence and eagerness to please make him a joy to train.

If you feel you can offer Blue the right home with plenty of exercise and stimulation. Please read below on how to apply.

If you are interested in adopting Blue, please fill in an enquiry form below. You will then receive a questionnaire to complete. If your application is successful, we will then contact you regarding the next steps
