Bonnie is a ten month old collie/Spanish water dog mix. She is medium to large size (collie size -maybe a bit more leggy). She needs to come into our care after the rescue who brought her to the UK wasn’t able to provide rescue back-up. She is neutered and fully vaccinated/microchipped.
This is what her foster carer has to say about her:
Bonnie is bouncy and eager to please, she loves a game of tug, playing with her toys and most of all playing with my other ten month old pup.
She also likes to “help” in the garden and is a typical pup, needing to be kept busy & occupied so as not to get into mischief. She will need a secure garden.
Bonnie is mostly house trained but will still have a little accident if left or sometimes at night (very rare but may increase slightly in a new home). She hasn’t learnt to bark at the door yet but will stand by the back door.
At the moment she is living happily with a 4-year old male Springer/Poodle X and a small female terrier cross. With both of these she is submissive despite being bigger than them both. I think she would like another dog for company but could be homed as only dog.
Bonnie came from a busy kennel environment and as a result she can be worried by other dogs when out and about. We think this would improve with her living with a calm dog to show her there is nothing to be worried about and she will also benefit from some training/input – we can recommend a suitable trainer if needed. Bonnie’s new family would ideally have experience of helping dogs with similar issues.
She walks well on a lead and her recall is mostly good off a lead but she can be easily distracted.
At the moment she isn’t keen on the car and will need to be helped to gradually overcome this by doing short journeys – for this reason we will be looking to rehome her within an hour or less travelling time.
Bonnie is a sweet, clever girl and she could be a fantastic dog for agility or something similar as se loves to learn. She is very gentle and has lived happily with young children and would make a great family pet.
She hasn’t had the best of starts and deserves a fantastic forever home where she can blossom and fulfil her potential.
