Connie is a 3-year-old Border Collie who has been waiting for her new home since December 2016.
She was found straying and no owner came forward to collect her. Connie is a sensitive girl who was very scared in kennels but was lucky to find a lovely foster home who have cared for her ever since. However, she is still looking for a permanent new home of her own.
Connie is a bright, active and friendly girl who likes to learn new things. However, she gets spooked easily and has a phobia of loud noises and new situations so is much happier to live a predictable life. She is a great dog in the home and would be more than happy to have a routine with the same walks every day and then games in the garden at home. For this reason Connie doesn't need particularly active owners as long as they are willing to provide her with mental stimulation at home.
She is fearful of other dogs so would prefer to be the only dog in the home, although it may be possible to introduce her to an existing dog in the home if new owners are willing to visit our centre multiple times. Connie would like an adult only home with owners with dog experience; in the right home she would make her new owners a fabulous companion. Full support to introduce her to a new home will be given by our welfare team.
Whenever dogs comes into our care they are assessed before they are adopted. This is because the majority of our dogs come from Local Authority pounds and with little or no previous history. This initial assessment period allows us to assess temperament, personality and the best match for a new home. We do not work on a first come first served basis but always strive to find the ideal home for each dog.
All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to adoption. A homecheck is required, and you will need to come along to the centre to meet the dog with your own dog(s) and family. Our adoption fee is £200.
