Meet Scottie

Scottie has definitely been a house dog before. He is house trained and not at all bothered by normal household noises. All he wants to be near a human and he will curl up quietly. Every now and then you may get a gentle nudge with a soft nose to remind you he is still there and would like some attention please. He walks well on a lead, sits quietly on the seat looking out the window in the car and really isn't a bother at all. Scottie seems to be a little overwhelmed by large dogs when he first meets them and maybe would prefer a home with small dogs. In fact, so far it seems he would be fine on his own as he doesn't really interact much with my dog but then they both like their own space. He is a real gentle sooky boy who really likes children. Scottie is very thin with ribs showing but there is nothing wrong with his appetite so with lots of TLC he should be back to normal in no time at all. Scottie is smaller than a pure bred Collie, standing approximately 48cm at the shoulder, very fine boned and who currently weighs in at little under 12 kg. Scottie would make a wonderful addition to the family.

Scottie was adopted on 10 May 2010 after 1 month in foster care
