My name is Taffy.Â Iâ€™m looking for a loving new home as my owner has a terminal illness and is unable to care for me now.
Iâ€™m an 11-year-old Welsh Border Collie.Â Despite being a bit older Iâ€™m in perfect health and Iâ€™m very energetic and love long walks.Â Iâ€™m neutered, microchipped, house-trained and my vaccinations are upâ€‘toâ€‘date.Â I did have a flea allergy but now this is under control my beautiful coat is quickly returning to its former glory (as you can see, my hair is a little shorter on my back half).
I adore human company â€“ I love being stroked and talked to so Iâ€™m a very good companion dog.Â Iâ€™m good with children but sometimes chase cats, ducks!Â Because I was attacked by another dog when I was a puppy I need to be introduced to new dogs slowly â€“ being of a certain age I just donâ€™t always appreciate it when big dogs bound up to me! Like a lot of dogs I donâ€™t like loud bangs (fireworks, thunder) but I have a couple of funny quirks of my own:Â I donâ€™t like being watched while Iâ€™m eating and I shiver with excitement when Iâ€™m anticipating something nice (like walkies).
Please can you give me a new home?
