Following the very sad and sudden death of our 12 year old Border Collie, we only managed two weeks without ‘man’s best friend’ before heading off to the Border Collie Trust kennels to look at homeless Collies/Collie crosses. So, on Sunday 29th June we completed all the paperwork and came home with very docile/nervous 18 month old Border Collie/Saluki cross who had been rescued from Ireland. A working dog crossed with a sighthound is known as a Lurcher.
We’ve renamed him ‘Shadow’ because he follows us around to the point where we are in danger of tripping over him! He’s never been trained and seems to have been abused in the past, so there is much work for us to do, but he is settling in well with us.
