Could you make a Collie’s Christmas wish come true?

A friendly, enthusiastic five-year old Collie Cross is bound to make for a fun new addition to the family.

Staff at Dogs Trust Shoreham are appealing for a new home for, Dexter a handsome Collie Cross who has lots of energy and is looking for owners who can provide him with plenty of opportunities to express his active nature.

If you’re someone who is keen on getting involved with reward-based training and enjoy going on lots of adventures, then Dexter may just be the dog for you.

Despite his happy-go-lucky character, Dexter does have a sensitive side and a few worries about the world around him. His new family will need to get to know him over several meetings and he’ll need some extra support with building up his confidence around handling, car travel and traffic.

A spokesperson at Dogs Trust Shoreham said: “Dexter loves the company of other dogs when out on his walks and often looks to his pals to boost his courage. He will need to be the only pet at home but would benefit from having walking buddies or meeting up with other likeminded canines. The youngest member of Dexter’s new family should be aged 14 and it is essential that he has a garden of his own.”

If you think you may be able to offer Dexter your time, love and some much-needed home comforts – for life, and not just for Christmas – you can contact Dogs Trust Shoreham on 01273 45256.
