Today we are happy to tell you that Looky is with a new family. Yes, we know we have said that before a couple of times, but bear with us. Saved from a life enclosed on a tiny balcony, this stunning border collie is a very complicated dog. Part of that is no doubt due to being totally deaf, and part of it is due to his breed; border collies are hyper intelligent and do not cope well with confined spaces. The SPA has not been easy for him. And the problem has snowballed. The more difficult Looky became, the less often he was exercised and thus his behaviour worsened.
The cycle needed to be broken, but previous adoptions failed. The Association Borderline Collie has been looking for a home for a long time, and it is thanks to them that Looky has had another chance. Carole, one of very few SPA employees who were able to handle him, put Looky into a cage in which he travelled to his new home in Alsace. It appears that he knew something was up, because he behaved impeccably on the journey, and so far all is going well with in his new home. His new family are extremely experienced with difficult dogs, and they know everything there is to know about Looky. So let’s all keep our fingers crossed and hope that this time Looky won’t mess up!
Tomorrow is a Bank Holiday in France, so the refuge will be shut, but you never know, there might be a few of us there walking dogs!
