Dog charity making appeal for collie to be re-homed


A dog charity is appealing for a collie to be re-homed after it was kennelled just one week before Christmas.

Dogs Trust Glasgow is making the appeal to dog lovers in rural areas in Scotland to offer a country home to young collie Maxy Boy.

Sandra Lawton, Dogs Trust Glasgow Rehoming Centre Manager, said:

“Maxy Boy is a lovely dog and will make someone a great pet. Unfortunately because Collies are such super intelligent dogs they tend to find it hard being in a kennel environment and as a result sometimes don’t come across well to prospective owners.

“We would love to find Maxy Boy a home in a rural location with an experienced Collie owner. Such an area will suit him well and he will have plenty of opportunity for the long walks and mental stimulation that he will need.”

The one and a half year old collie came to Dogs Trust Glasgow just one week before Christmas.

Maxy Boy was kennelled by his owners as they found it difficult to cope with his boundless energy.

Staff are hoping to find the collie a new home where he would get lots and lots of attention.

Maxy Boy would like a home with experienced collie owners and would need to be the only dog in the home.
