Catch up with Falkirk’s four-legged friends

How old are you? Six-year-old.

What’s your breed? Border Collie.

Where are you living at the moment? The Dogs Trust, West Calder.

Why are you there? I’m looking for a new home.

Where would you like to be? I love going for long walks where I can get to explore all the interesting smells. My favourite games to play are fetch and football and I always have a toy in her mouth. I am a fantastic traveller and enjoy trips out in the car, especially if I get a splash in the water or swim. I, like most collies, am very intelligent and know lots of tricks. I love to please and be kept busy and stimulated.

What qualities do you need from your owners? I am an energetic girl and would ideally suit a home with owners who enjoy being active. I can be shy around strangers and need time to get used to new people and build relationships with them. Once I know you I am very loyal and eager to please.

Anything else? Shelly is vaccinated, neutered, micro-chipped and comes with insurance and free behavioural advice for the rest of her life.
