Six year old Banksie arrived at the refuge at the end of December 2018 and remained unclaimed. He is now a fixture of the ScPA, but we hope not a permanent one. Initially a bit wild, Banksie has calmed down a lot, although he finds it very frustrating being locked up in a kennel. He has a lot of energy, and adores his walks. Not surprising as this boy has a lot of border collie in him. He is becoming very good on the lead and will respond to his name. He is happy to stop and sit for a cuddle and he is surprisingly gentle when meeting new people. Banksie is making enormous progress at the refuge and although he will need a bit of work, he will be a hugely rewarding dog. Don’t tell anyone, but if I could take him home, I would. Just seeing the smile on his face when he is out on walks makes the world seem a whole lot brighter!
