Jasper is 5 years old and has come to the centre with some behavioural issues. He needs an experienced dog owner who has dealt with challenging behaviour before. He is not a tactile dog and is uncomfortable with prolonged close contact with people, which has caused him to lash out before. If you respect this then he will not cause trouble of his own accord. He would much prefer affection given in the form of food or toys!

He is friendly with other dogs as long as they are okay with him, he does not like cats. Jasper is looking for a home in a very quiet area as he doesn't like lots of surrounding noise. He would love a property that has a large garden or small paddock as he is a typical toy obsessed collie and loves being in our fields with someone throwing toys for him.

Normally our policy is that we do not home our dogs to be kennelled outside. In Jasper's case, given his issues, we would make an exception as long as the kennel was properly insulated and heated in winter. It would also have to be a home where he would still get lots of time spent with him.
