Flash and Poppy were found when they were five months old, which is not an ideal age to arrive at the SPA. The cuteness of being a puppy has gone, and in the case of these two, their lack of socialisation at an early age means that they are quite timid and nervous.
At the moment taking them for a walk is quite a challenge, as although once they are in forward motion all is well, they both have a habit of going on strike and just refusing to budge. Lots of encouragement and biscuits are required to get them moving again. Having said that, they have only had a couple of walks, so it is early days.
And we must point out that neither of them shows any aggression at all; they wait passively as you lift them up and carry them a few paces.
We think that the dogs are border collie crosses, but Flash is quite a stocky boy, and Poppy has slightly wiry fur. They were born in mid-October 2015 and are vaccinated, sterilised and identified. Gentle, patient homes required, possibly with another resident dog.
