Rolo is a 2 year old male Collie. He is a gorgeous, young boy with a long, soft black and white coat of medium build. Sadly Rolo’s adopters were unable to give him the time, love and exercise he needs so they surrendered him to our rescue a few months ago.
Rolo would thrive with active outdoorsy owners, living in a rural area, who are experienced dog owners and, ideally, 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 the time, patience and love he deserves. He would be fantastic for agility or obedience. No cats and another dog would be favourable for him to play with. Children over 12 years we recommend.
Rolo is a classic Collie: incredibly energetic, super intelligent, very affectionate with people, very playful and obedient.
Foster Report: Rolo was unsurprisingly very stressed at first and was reactive towards our dogs a couple of times, but after a few weeks he gradually relaxed and now they all get along well. They all eat together without problems.
He is sociable when he meets dogs during walks, but he needs an owner who is patient as he can sometimes get stressed, he just needs time to settle in and proper introductions with other dogs. Like most dogs he chases cats and is interested in birds too! He would love a big garden and other active dogs to run around and play with. He also loves balls and toys. He loves walks and can pull on the lead when excited, but when he relaxes, he doesn’t pull.
Rolo is a very intelligent Collie cross. He is incredibly energetic, super intelligent, very affectionate with people, very playful and obedient.
Foster Report : Rolo gets on with other dogs and they all eat together without problems. He can live with other dogs, he is definitively sociable too when he meets dogs during walks or at the park, but if he is stressed he can act up, so he needs time to settle in and proper introductions with other dogs. He chases cats and is interested in birds too, and does not feel comfortable with children, in fact he will warn them away from him.
With people, he’s very eager to please, very intelligent, a very fast-learner, obedient and loving. He is not shy or wary with people at all, he is very affectionate with everybody. He always rolls on his back to ask for belly rubs! He is well-behaved at home, he is fully house-trained and can be left alone for short periods. The worst he has done is steal a toilet roll!
