Bere is a gorgeous boy with lots of energy! He can be prone to feeling frustrated easily if he is not given enough stimulation. He loves his toys, especially balls but he has an obsession with sticks and if he gets one he will try and guard it from you therefore he must be guided not to play with them. Bere knows basic commands and mixes okay with some dogs. He is however reactive to some on lead, and needs help to be taught an alternative to barking at other dogs, such as sit and focus on his ball. This active boy has met visiting children but needs an adult home as he has shown signs of being uncomfortable with people in his space. Bere is sensitive to noises such as fireworks and thunder. He likes his large crate and is housetrained. Bere has lived with a cat who we are told he will play with, but the cat tried to avoid him so he may be too overbearing for cats.
Bere was handed in for rehoming as he was uncomfortable with the male owner in the house. The male owner was also anxious around dogs and after leaning over Bere to stroke, him Bere snapped at his face and marked his lip.
Bere requires an adult only home without children. He is looking for an owner who understands the needs of nervous collies and that he can be uncomfortable with people in his space. Bere will need someone who can provide him with ongoing training.
