passim border collies

Everything a dog should be.


As with any older dog that requires rehoming it is essential that the garden be fully secure - a border collie can clear a 4 foot fence with no trouble at all, and they are extremely good at digging under fences too. For this reason they should be accompanied outside at all times, even if only for a few minutes for a wee, for the first couple of weeks at least, until they feel completely safe and at home in their new surroundings. They need to be kept on the lead when out walking for the first few weeks , until they are completely bonded and secure with their new people and familiar with their surroundings.  They will probably be used to living in a kennel and run or sleeping in a crate at night, and will need to be taught some house manners and possibly to be clean in the house, an older dog will invariably come with some 'baggage' that will need sorting out, If you are not prepared to do this please re-consider if homing an older dog is the best choice for you.

Neamah has had four litters,  this can be checked out on the kennel club website, and is now looking for a comfortable home to retire to.

Neamah is a pretty tri colour girl. she can be a little shy at first, but is very affectionate when she gets to know people. She gets on with other dogs and bitches and would settle well with another friendly dog for companionship.  She is not used to small children and may be unsure of how to react around them, but should be ok with children from about 12 upwards. I would not consider her suitable for a home with cats or other small animals as she shows a keen interest in chasing them, and would probably be best suited to an older person or couple or a family with older children.

She can be sensitive to loud noises so a very noisy busy household would not suit her.

Neamah enjoys going for walks, and may even show some interest in doing a little fun agility once she had settled into a new environment.

Currently Neamah lives outside in a kennel and run with two other bitches, and if the weather is bad she comes up to my dog room to sleep in a large crate at night, and would be best suited to a home where she could have a large crate in a conservatory or utility room to sleep in at night, with the freedom of the house and a secure garden during the day. She may not be fully house trained, and could make the same 'mistakes' in a house as a puppy would, she likes tasty treats, but is not particularly greedy and responds well to being given plenty of praise and fussing. She is smart and learns quickly and I feel with a little time and patience she would become an affectionate and fun companion for the right person.
