I unexpectedly have a 14 month old bitch available who has been returned.
Tilly is a lovely bitch who loves to play, is quick & keen to learn (though can be easily distracted!). Unfortunately Tilly wasn't properly socialised as a puppy & along with a lack of training she can be wilfull & lack boundaries. Unfortunately this means that Tilly (& her original family) has sadly lived quite a stressful first year.
I'm looking for a very experienced dog/Border Collie home for Tilly where someone has the time & experience to bring out the very best in this lovely girl. So far Tilly has only got as far as completing her KCGCDS Puppy Foundation & Bronze awards as unfortunately instead of recommending & encouraging further training, her former owner was simply told she wasn't ready to move onto her Silver training!! (I think that trainer also needs to go back to training school!!). I unfortunately only learnt the full story of how life had really been when Tilly came back for a holiday.
I strongly believe that in the right home with the right training, Tilly will not only make a wonderful companion but would make a truly fantastic sports dog & could easily go a long way in agility/obedience/flyball etc.
If you feel that you're the right person to take on Tilly then please send me as much information on yourself, your home, garden, work, children, other pets, experience, hopes for the future etc. either via the contacts page or email me at;

Please note; although Tilly lived in a conventional family, so far she appears to be more of a ladies dog. Tilly is used to children but she won't be placed in a home with children under 13* years. (*with a couple of exceptions).
Tilly is from Grace's
