This young collie is Gemini, who did not have the best start to her life. At only 1 year old, she spent 6 months of this time on a 2ft chain, along with a litter sibling who sadly died of neglect. Luckily for little Gemini, someone knew of her plight. She is now under our care and is waiting for a home, where she will be loved and cared for for the rest of her llife. She is a small collie, and is very typical of the collie breed in that she has loads of energy and is an intelligent dog. She is very clean in her overnight kennel, she walks very well on the lead, and she is good with other dogs. She loves attention, loves to be with people, and she seems to have a good idea of ‘sit’ making it clear that she has had some training , despite her background. Her ideal home will be a home where there is someone at home for a good part of the day, and is available to take her walking and play with her to consume some of her collie energy. A home where there is someone at home all day, but is working from home for 8 hours, will not suit her as she will go mental due to lack of exercise in such a situation, she will become bored and will start to bark. We do not know what she is like with cats. Rehoming to a family with another dog will be subject to a meet and greet. She must have a secure property as collies have an amazing ability to climb over fences and walls. Families with children 10 years or more will only be considered.
Gemini has been spayed, vaccinated, and chipped (chip number 972274200241037, origin Ireland).
