Border Collie | 5 years old



Copper ia a gorgeous 4 year old collie. He is very typical of the breed & enjoys spending his days exploring the countryside followed by an afternoon playing with his toys and showing off his intelligence learning new tricks with his favourite human friends. Copper is sometimes too clever for his own good & needs to be using his brain to burn off some of that energy! He enjoys the company of people however can be a little untrusting of handling initially. Once you have won Copper over you will have a friend for life.

Type of home needed

Copper would love to have his own garden he can run around with his toys, followed by an afternoon sunbathe! He would benefit greatly from having adopters that have experience with his breed & understand their delicate nature. Copper is more of the sensitive type & would be happy in an adult home with adopters who are wanting to explore various types of training from agility, obedience and scent work. All of the above are fantastic ways to encourage him to use his skills and gain some well-deserved confidence. We know Copper can struggle around traffic. That chase instinct is sometimes just too powerful, so would need a rural home with access to walking areas away from busy roads. Although he is working very hard on his social skills with dogs, he still has a little way to go, so would need to be the only dog in the home. He is housetrained and enjoys travelling in the car.

More about me

Copper is currently relaxing in one of our dedicated foster homes where he is learning how much fun being in a home can be & that with some patience and kindness from his carer, each day we are seeing a little more of his cheeky personality shining through.
