Dog Profile


Ref: 067/17

1 years 11 months

Dog · Kelpie Collie · Black and Tan



Tommy is an energetic boy who loves meeting new people. He can be a little timid in new situations as he has not known much other than farm life. Tommy has lived outdoors so is not yet house trained. At the moment we are helping him improve his body condition as he needs to put on some weight. Tommy has shared his kennel with another male dog, but he has been known to guard his food (most likely as he has felt he needs to compete for it with other dogs in the past). Tommy is affectionate but needs further training. He has met livestock and we are told he is not interested. This gorgeous boy has not been used to travelling in a car so can be sick. He is very affectionate and loves to run in the paddock.


Tommy's owner sadly passed away and family could no longer look after him.

Re-homing Criteria

Tommy needs a collie experienced owner who is able to help him get to grips with a home environment. Although he has met children briefly and we are told he was okay with them, he has not shared his space with children before so potential adopters will need to take this into consideration.

Homefinder Questionnaire

If you'd like to help rehome Tommy simply complete the Homefinder Questionnaire to get started.
