Hi, I'm Sassy

I'm a 8-year-old Border Collie from South Wales: Newport rehoming and advice unit and I'm looking for my forever home.

About me

Um hello there, my name's Sassy and I am a lovely Collie looking for a new home. I do lack a bit of confidence when new visitors come to my house and need to take things at my own pace. After a little while I will come and say hello, especially if you have a tasty treat!

At the moment the Blue Cross humans don't have much evidence of me with other dogs but my history with them is good so I could potentially live with another calm like-minded doggy (pending meets at the centre) who doesn't mind me taking things slowly. I have lived with another dog before and we got on famously - we played and even slept together on the same bed!

I have never lived with children but had lots of young peoples to the house who I really enjoy playing with and having lots of cuddles from! So I have the potential to live with dog savvy children in my new home!

My owners describe me as an active collie and I am much more confident when I am outside; everything is soooo interesting! I am currently not walked very often so would love owners who can start building up my exercise to help me shift some pounds! I also love playing fetch in my garden so maybe you could join me with a couple of games a day :)

So if you think you could help a sensitive soul like me build up my confidence then I would very much like to hear from you!
