Background

Star arrived with us in November 2023 along with her littler mates – they had had minimal human contact and no socialisation or care at all. They all went into foster homes where some flourished, but Star is clearly traumatised by her sad start in life and needs a very special home.

Character

Star is very slowly learning to trust humans, but is still very hesitant – she will now walk past some people rather than cowering away which is good progress. Star is very bright and intelligent and really takes reassurance from other dogs around.

Type of home

Star is currently living on a farm and is unfortunately sheep obsessed, so she needs a home without livestock. Star needs an experienced, Collie Savvy, incredibly patient home with someone willing to put the work in and take a chance on this little dog. This is going to be a long journey for Star and we know she’ll be worth it. Star needs a home with other dogs and we think that small-children would be too much for her – a family set up would not be ideal sadly. We think Star would be best placed in a rural area, in a home with one or two people and other dogs.

Adopting

Star is in foster care in Cheddar and applicants will need to come and meet her here.
