Willa is a 5 year old female Collie Cross. She was adopted from us as a puppy but has been returned to our care recently due to not liking visitors to the home. Willa has Collie traits and can be distrustful of new people, if allowed to get used to people unpressured she can get used to new people. She is more wary of men than women and men do have to be very patient in earning her trust. Willa is perfectly happy to be shut away when visitors come to the house.
Willa can live with another dog but is more people orientated and doesn’t need a dog companion in her new home. Willa has previously lived with confident cats and could do so again but could they would need to be confident as she may chase if they’re timid.
Willa needs an adult only environment, her fosterers say she is eager and quick to learn and would be great for anyone looking to do fun agility. She would also be good for anyone looking for a dog to take jogging and enjoys this very much. Willa is fostered in Croydon.
Please note it is Safe Rescue policy that all dogs adopted from us must wear a slip lead to be walked for the duration of their lives. Too many dogs are lost from slipping out of collars and harnesses and many of our dogs are timid due to past ill treatment and are likely to panic when out and about. It is absolutely okay to use these things additionally to slip leads, but not instead of.
We also request that extendable retractable leads are never used on our dogs. If you are opposed to slip leads, please do not enquire about our dogs as this is non negotiable. Thank you for understanding. All dogs have to be collected and a crate must be used.
