Dog Profile


Ref: 073/17

9 years 3 months

Dog · Border Collie · Tri Colour



Troy is a collie who needs to be focused on something. He can become overwhelmed when there is lots going on and can be vocal when he hasn't got his ball to focus on. He is playful, house trained and full of beans! Troy loves the outdoors and would play fetch all day if he could! He is quite a strong boy on lead so isn't for the faint hearted! Troy apparently runs away from the cat that he met, but he has never shared his home with one. This gorgeous boy is affectionate and knows basic commands.


Troy was handed into the centre for rehoming due to a change in circumstances.

Re-homing Criteria

Troy needs a minimalist home environment, with a collie experienced owner, who understands that he can become frustrated if over stimulated. He is looking for a home without children or other dogs. Troy would best suit a rural home with owners who have time to play ball with him!

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