Age: 3 - 4 years
Sammy came from a farm home with three other dogs due to a family bereavement. He is a lovely dog, very sensitive and quite nervous of the unknown. He’s clean in his pen and good on his lead but he has been fed on a diet that has exacerbated his sensitivity, he is now on a more suitable diet which will eventually calm him down.
He needs a calm and patient home with no resident children and with someone with previous experience of a very sensitive collie. He is good on a lead, house trained and good with other dogs when out and about.
All our dogs are vaccinated microchipped and, whenever possible neutered (this can be dependant on the age of the dogs e.g. very old or very young) There is a minimum fee of 200.00 to help cover the cost of taking in more dogs in need of help.

All our dogs go into their Life Guardians homes on a training programme, we give each adopted dog its lifetime of back up and we try our best to match the right dog to potential adopters. As each dog and potential home are different we don't have a rigid set of rules but we do need to know that there is a suitably fenced garden/exercise area and we don't let our dogs go into homes where they are going to be left alone for several hours at a time on a regular basis.
Some of our dogs do have issues and some are ready for rehoming within a matter of weeks of being in our care so we do need to know from potential adopters if they are prepared for or are experienced with any behavioural issues.
