About me

PLEASE READ BEFORE APPLYING AS PIPPIN'S REQUIREMENTS ARE SPECIFIC: Hi everyone, my name is Pippin. Let me tell you a bit about what home I’m looking for as I am looking for something quite specific. Being a young and active Collie I would love to find an owner who can join me on long walk and work my intelligent mind. I find change and a lack of routine unsettling so I would love new owners who are understanding of this and will gradually introduce new aspects to my life so that I don't become overwhelmed. I need a quiet home without young children and other pets, and a home that is in a fairly quiet location as I can find traffic and busyness over stimulating. I need a home environment where my house is set back from any roads and a home where there isn’t too much noise or too much for me to see from the windows. I am extremely affectionate and just love to meet new people and other dogs on walks. I love to play with toys and my favourite thing to do is go off lead on walks, chase my toys and go exploring. If you like to go on adventures in the countryside and go exploring too, and you think you have the right home for me, please fill out a form.
