I need patience
Effy is very affectionate but lacks confidence. She is easily worried by new people and situations. She has been kenneled on a farm, in a very rural environment, apart from a short amount of time in a home. Effy is friendly towards other dogs and tries to avoids conflict. She has seen cats briefly and showed no interest towards them. Effy has shared her space with her littermates who she got on well with. She is food orientated but needs further recall training. Effy can get worried by loud noises or quick movements so is looking for an owner who is patient and understands it will take her time to adjust to her new lifestyle. She is still getting used to the car as she has not had much experience.
Effy was handed in for rehoming as she was bred to be a sheep herder but did not cut the grade. She has come in with 3 of her littermates who decided sheep dog trialling was not for them either! She was rehomed briefly, but it did not work out to be the right match.
Effy requires a rural type home with an owner who is understanding of the needs of under socialised ex farm collies. We are looking for an owner who is gentle and patient and will give Effy plenty of time to grow in confidence and help provide her with reassurance and guidance. She needs an active owner who will provide her with the mental and physical stimulation young collies require. We feel Effy would benefit from a home without young children.
