Flukey is a stunning 18 month old tri-coloured collie. He arrived at the centre as a very nervous boy after a rough start to life with a few complex behaviours which we have been working with during his time here.
Poor Flukey has not had a positive experience around men which has left him wary and fearful. He will make friends with men in time and he could be rehomed with a man. However, he would need a female in the home to provide a safe base and allow him to make friends in his own time.
Since being at the centre Flukey has grown in confidence, however he does still have a very nervous side which will require further training once in his new home. The team will be happy to talk through this to any potential adopters but it is vital that new owners know it may take a few meets with Flukey before he is ready to leave us. He is looking for a quiet, active home preferably in a rural area, as he can get worried by new people, traffic and busy situations. It is essential that Flukey has a secure garden area and someone at home with him most of the time initially.
Flukey is an absolute pleasure to be around, he steals the hearts of everyone he meets. He absolutely loves attention and fuss and will snuggle in so close to you. You will struggle to find a dog with a better sense of humour, he is a bit of a clown and being a clever collie, loves to show off all the tricks that he knows.
Flukey has been working hard on his manners around other dogs. He loves other dogs and his confidence grows when they are around. However, some dogs may not enjoy his exuberant nature and constant need to play. We are ideally looking for a home for Flukey as an only dog, however, we would be happy to explore potential homes with an existing dog if we feel they would be a good match (possibly a confident female). Flukey would be happy to be walked around other dogs. He does not have any experience with cats.
We are prioritising homes without children due to Flukeys sensitive side. However, for the right home, in the right location, older children may be considered.
Winning Flukeys trust may take a bit of time, but it is so worth it for a lifetime of love.
