Dog Profile


Ref: 068.17

5 years 3 months

Dog · Collie · White with black



Patch is a friendly boy who has a very affectionate side. He has come from a farm environment so has never lived indoors or been used to busy places. Patch has shared his kennel with another male dog but he can be reactive to some new male dogs he meets. His recall is quite good and he has been used to free running on the farm, running alongside the quad bike. Patch has only seen cats from a distance on the farm. He likes company and is a little more confident with women as opposed to men. Patch has only really traveled in the back of a farm pick up before. We are unsure of his age as we were told he is approximately 2 years, however we feel he is older. He loves cuddles and interaction.


Patch's owner sadly passed away and a family member could no longer look after him.

Re-homing Criteria

Patch needs a rural home without young children. He has difficulty interacting with people and becomes very overstimulated and frustrated which can lead him to mouthing. Patch is looking for a quiet, rural, farm type home. He finds domestic home life too overwhelming!
