SHEP - BORDER COLLIE
Shep is a fabulous 4 year old Border Collie in need of a new home with a secure garden/yard and children. His owners made a hard decision to give into the MSPCA as he keeps getting away on them and going to homes in the area that have children! He has a special love of young ones and enjoys being around them. Shep was a fantastic farm dog and even as a young pup, wanted the company of children over cattle. So for the owner's love of their wonderful dog, Shep, they decided to ask for our help in finding him a suitable home where he will be happy. He is house trained, lead trained, and travels well in the car. He is a highly intelligent, friendly and charming fella and will make such a rewarding companion to a family with children. Shep has not been socialized with other dogs, so would like to be the only canine in his new home.
BRANDY - DOBERMAN MIX
Brandy is Dobie mix female approx. 4-5 years old -- but mostly Doberman. She was handed into our shelter as her owners needed to find her a new home (not Brandy's fault). She is a clean dog, very kind natured, walks nicely on lead, and is good with other dogs. Brandy is just a bit smaller than a standard Doberman -- she is alert, fun loving and an affectionate girl. In her previous home, she had a tendency to chase after cars -- but if she is on lead when being walked in traffic areas, this should not be a problem. To learn more about lovely Brandy, either phone us or stop by the shelter and meet her in person!
COOPER (WITH OWNER)
COOPER - TERRIER (WIRE-HAIRED) - 2 YEAR OLD MALE
This is what Jacinta has written about Cooper: This 2 year old Terrier mix needs a new home. He is a real outdoor dog, (but sleeps indoors) he loves nothing more than running in fields and playing with other dogs. He is great with kids of all ages. He is in perfect health, fully vaccinated and microchipped.) need to find a new home for Cooper only because when we got him as a pup we thought he would be a house dog but he is not one for the sofa! He does love our company in the evening, strolling around the kitchen but usually he's too busy outside running in fields, running about with the cows next door and other dogs on our lane. We live in a rural area so its not a problem but our circumstances are changing and I feel he is being left alone for too long during the day and we don't have much time at weekend either. He has a great temperament and is very relaxed, in great shape, eats well, (dog food only no scraps), fully vaccinated, wormed and is microchipped. He is not neutered. He has a great face with beautiful large brown eyes. He sits, waits and gives paw on command. He sits perfectly still when we talk to him, and walks well on lead but prefers walking freely so we never take him into town (it's the fields or forest for his walks).

They will need further help on their basic training, but have recently learned to sit for a treat and we are working on stopping their jumping up for attention.

They have received their 2nd vaccination and have been treated 3 times for worms. Kit and Kimi are at the fun and super playful phase, jumping up, exploring and biting anything within reach. Adopting a pup is a big responsibility and any adopter must be prepared and willing for all that is required during the puppy and adolescent phase (chewing, house-training, lead training, etc.) All adopters must have a safe/secure garden/yard and the pup has to be a house-living pet (even as an adult).
