LEO - Experienced foster home needed

Leo is a young 8mth old male Border Collie who came to us with some quite serious behavioural issues..very sad to see in such a young boy....

We've spent a lot of time getting to know Leo and working on his issues and what we've found is the lost loving gentle boy who just wants to please. Leo is as bright as a button and picks commands up so fast but does need a very experienced home with the time and ability to turn this young boy into the sort of dog we know he will make in the right hands.

I personally spent 24/7 with Leo and in the four days I has him he settled down so much and learnt so many commands and showed me just what a bright and loving boy he really is!

Leo needs a job! Leo needs a job with plenty of overtime!
Leo's problems stem from the fact that from a very young age he was left alone for long periods of time with no direction and nothing to do so went self employed as a neurotic shadow chaser uninterested in anything else but bouncing off walls to catch "HIS" shadows. Leo will also guard these shadows and for this reason will not be homed with another dog but outside of the home he loves meeting and playing with them.

Within 24hrs of being with me he stopped doing this because I kept him focused and busy. When Leo first arrived he was very reactive towards strangers this also improved straight away and he learnt to approach people gently and get a fuss.

Leo's not going to be a easy dog to begin with but in the right hands he's going to make the most fantastic adult dog. He needs a leader, someone that can show him how to behave(and how not to) Someone that can give this young boy enough to do to keep him happy and focused. Leo is happy to be crated for a few hrs and sleeps in his crate overnight.

If you think you have got the experience, patience and time this pup needs please contact us either on here or by email to

Full behaviorist support will be given to anyone who offers Leo a chance,

Someone must have room for this big cuddly slobber monster. Bella's clean in the house and loves her home comforts. We are desparate to get her out of a kennel and into a home.
