About me

Hello everyone, my name is Marley and I'm a 1 year old Border Collie. I am very typical to the breed, I have a strong desire to learn and keep my mind busy - I will need new owners who have experience with collies, will know how to channel my energy in the right direction. I am currently in a foster home due to my stress levels in kennels.  I'm incredibly switched on and need a home where I will regulary be taken to classes/agility to put my brain to good use,  I have been learning some agility skills recently and love it!  I can be wary when I first meet people, however with a bit of time and patience I will become a fabulous friend.  I am a very loving boy once I begin to grow a bond with someone - they call me the wiggly, velcro dog here as I stick to people I love!  I have previously suffered with shadow chasing, but this has improved massively in my foster home. I need an adult only home, I have been living with cats in my foster home, and I am told I am very good around them, I need to live with well rounded dog(s) to help me overcome any worries I have, so this is a bit of a must for me.
