Arnold is a 1-2 year old male Collie. He is a gorgeous, young Collie boy with a long, soft brown and white fur. He was bought as a puppy by a family living in a flat, who didn’t understand the requirements of a Collie. As a result, he was surrendered to rescue a couple of months ago because he was a stressed dog and they didn’t have time for him.
Arnold is your classic Collie: super intelligent, very affectionate with people, very playful and obedient. On the other hand, unfortunately, he wasn’t properly trained or socialized with dogs at a young age and so is not sociable with male dogs now, he is not compatible with cats, and he tends to ” mouth” when he gets too excited. All things an experienced owner can work with.
Arnold needs a young, fit, outdoorsy person living in a rural area who is an experienced dog owner and is familiar with Collies. Most of all, someone who can commit to giving him all the exercise, training and mental and physical stimulation he requires, and especially lots of time, patience and love.
He would be fantastic for agility or obedience, and we know he can be a perfect dog with the right training. He is one of the smartest dogs we’ve seen, and he is so eager to learn, to please and to follow people’s commands!
He walks well on the lead, he has lived with another female and he is house-trained and good at home. Super-intelligent. Current location is in Spain can travel to the UK once he has a home to go to.
