Pippa loves nothing more than playing with her ball and going out for walks. Her love for food makes training sessions a little easier.

Pippa can be worried around new people and so she would require a few meets before she would feel comfortable. Pippa is looking for a quiet, adult-only home preferably with owners who have previous dog experience, as she will require ongoing training.

Pippa’s new family would need to work closely with the training team to make sure that she felt comfortable in her new environments. Pippa can get a little worried when other dogs approach her so she requires to be walked in quiet areas.

Charlie

Spaniel/Collie cross Charlie adores a tennis ball. He would play all day long if he could. Charlie is also very happy to go out in the car to get out and about for an adventure, so very much enjoys his walks

Age: Six years old

Breed: Spaniel/Collie cross

Charlie adores a tennis ball and would play all day long if he could. Charlie is also very happy to go out in the car to get out and about for an adventure, so very much enjoys his walks. He hasn’t been around other dogs much and he will bark if they come too close so he will need quieter walking areas.

Charlie is searching for active owners who enjoy spending plenty of time outdoors so that they can play. He also needs someone who can manage a strong dog as he can be strong on the lead. He could live in a home with children if 16 years and over.

Charlie also requires a good-sized garden in his new home which is fully secure.

If you think you could offer Pippa or Charlie a home then please get in touch with the Ballymena Rehoming Centre.
