About me

Hi everyone, I am gorgeous George.

I am looking for a quiet home with owners who don't mind me taking a while to come out of my shell. I can be quite a nervous boy initially you see, so will take time to realise I can trust you.

The way to my heart is definitely through toys - I am tennis ball mad! I would love to have a new owner who was willing to give me lots of play time, which will also help to build a bond together. I love going for walks and adore water too and I am a good swimmer so if you have a beach or rivers and lakes nearby that would be a dream come true.

New owners who have experience of Border Collies would be beneficial so they might understand my quirky ways a little more, however, this isn't crucial.

Hope to hear from you soon, George x

Help George to find a happy home with the gift of pet sponsorship!

Does your loved one have room in their heart, but not in their home, for a pet of their own? Blue Cross sponsorship is the perfect present for animal lovers.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
