Can you give Hamish a new home?

A North East dog re-homing charity is appealing for help to find a new home for one-year-old Border Collie Hamish.

DAWGS has been finding loving new homes for dogs whose owners can no longer take care of them.

It has re-homed over 3,000 dogs in the past 20 years but as yet they have not been able to find a forever home for Hamish.

DAWGS Chairman Ian Paterson said: “Hamish is a lovely natured and very affectionate young dog, learns quickly and is eager to please.

“He is, however, very young and puppyish in his behaviour and still has a lot to learn.

“He needs to live with someone who is at home most of the time and doesn’t have to leave him unsupervised at home.”

Ian added: “Hamish needs lots of exercise, long walks daily and lots of stimulation as well as on-going training. Like most puppies he is very ‘mouthy’, enjoying tasting everything and chewing a lot – he will chew just about anything!

“He loves to curl up on the sofa beside you for a cuddle but sitting or lying quietly in the house is impossible unless he is really exhausted!

“He is afraid of traffic so a quiet country home is essential.

“We are looking for an adult only home where his new owners are experienced collie/dog owners, at home all day and who have time to give him long walks, lots of exercise and continue his training.”

Ian continued: “Hamish would make a lovely pet in the right home. While we haven’t found the right match yet we are sure there is someone out there for him - we just have to find them.”
