Handsome Harvey is being rehomed as he is not suited to his home environment, being a little too boisterous for the child in the property.  This striking looking lad is very friendly with people and other dogs, so could live with a dog of the right match.  Harvey is a well adjusted boy inside the home and he enjoys playing with his toys and watching the world go by through the gate.  He is in good health and travels well in the car, however Harvey does struggle with the outside world when out for a walk, wanting to chase traffic, joggers, bright reflections and shadows.

So for Harvey we are looking for an experienced Collie owner who is familiar with behaviours such as Harvey’s and in a calm environment, ideally in a more rural area.  His new owner(s) would also need to be able to give him ongoing training to help him overcome his anxieties outside the home.

To apply for Harvey, please email info@hollyhedge.org.uk stating your current situation & working hours and reasons for wanting to adopt him.  Please note, we will only be able to accept applications that match his needs.  Please also consider if your work hours and situation will still be suitable on a long term basis.  Thank you.
