Can you offer Dash a new home?

Breed: Border Collie
Colour: Black and White
Sex: Male
Age: 11 years 4 months.
Time with us: 11 weeks.

*RESERVED* Lovely Dash is an 11 year old Border Collie, and has unfortunately come in to us due to his elderly owner finding Dash too energetic and not being able to meet his needs.
Dash has taken a while to settle in with us, he was extremely nervous and became quite snappy. But, with time, patience and lots of TLC, Dash has now turned a corner and he is now showing his lovely affectionate personality.
Dash loves being out on his walks, he is still very spritely for an 11 year old, but does suffer with a little arthritis in his back legs, which we have now started anti-inflammatories after his vet check. We think he has been let off the lead quite a lot, as he does zig zag on the lead, and when we reach open spaces he does stop and look at you, anticipating his lead coming off.
He can be quite excited and animated by other dogs, and we have found him to be very happy to see some, but not others. He has now started playing with his toys, which was a delight to watch him do this.
Dash needs a calm and understanding owner, he does prefer women to men, as he has had bad experiences of men in the past. He needs a child free home, and where he won't be left for long periods. You will need to visit Dash a couple of times to build up a bond before adoption.'
