Lowe is a smart dog who is loving, mischievous and funny but he also has a low stress threshold so can be anxious and a little reactive – although this is improving. He is extremely loving, very licky and cuddly, and will snooze on the sofa next to you enjoying constant tummy rubs and ear tickles for hours. He can be reactive to strangers, more so with men, and is not happy with people coming to the house – but with the correct introductions he has built up good relationships with new people.

He loves dogs, wants to play with every dog he comes across, and is happy to run and tumble with dogs much bigger than himself. Lowe has the normal collie traits such as wanting to chase anything that moves (bikes, scooters, joggers, cats). However, this lovely boy is also a very intelligent border collie cross who enjoys training sessions: sit, down, leave it, quiet, steady, loose lead walking, come, paw, catch are just some of the things he is learning or has learnt.

We have a VERY detailed profile on Lowe which we would be happy to discuss with anybody who is interested in this handsome lad. We are looking for an adopter who has experience of border collies and their typical traits. Lowe is currently in the UK. We think he would be happier in a rural home.

All potential adopters will have to undergo a screening and home check process. This can take between 1-10 days dependant on available volunteers to perform your home check. All volunteers for ABLDR are unpaid and do this in their spare time whilst also holding down regular daytime jobs. Please be patient whilst we complete these checks. They are set to protect not only the dog but also you, the adopter, from adopting the wrong dog for your family. If you wish to adopt one of our lovely dogs, please fill in an Adoption Application form and one of our adoption team will be in contact with you. We aim to contact all new adoption applications within 48 hours. (Initial contact may be made by email, so please check your email junk folder)
