Rory – 3 year old male Border Collie

Rory is a 3 year old tri-coloured Border Collie. He is vaccinated and neutered. Rory was found as a stray by staff at our Welsh sanctuary and never claimed. We believe he was a neglected ex-farm dog. Rory was very timid and insecure when he first came to us. He was bewildered and unsure of his surroundings. He soon settled into the rescue life and is now very happy. Anyone who knows collies understands they are very intelligent dogs, who thrive on routine. Rory is very obedient and gentle. He loves attention and will nose butt you if he isn’t getting enough!

Rory was agoraphobic when he came to us. He was terribly unsocialised as a pup, he wasn’t used to a lead and was terrified by the outside world. A member of staff has worked hard with Rory and he now enjoys daily trips to the beach.
Rory can be very nervous around men, with time, patience and a gentle approach he can get used to men.
Rory is a great dog. He has come on in leaps and bounds since he has lived with us, but it is time he found his forever home!
In a typical collie way Rory would need the transition from the rescue to his new home to happen slowly as he doesn’t cope with change very well. With patient, committed owners Rory would soon settle down and be a joy to live with.

Rory has suffered from agoraphobia. Although a member of staff can now walk him. A new home will have to work closely with the rescue to keep him happy whilst in the great outdoors, until he is fully settled in his new surroundings.

Rory needs an adult only home, preferably with someone who has collie experience. We need a patient and committed person who will be prepared to get to know Rory slowly and help make the transition period from rescue life to home run as smoothly and as gently possible
