Border Collie Female 3yrs
Luna is also very people friendly, in fact, one of her major downfalls is that she jumps up on people to say hello. She just can’t help herself- we have tried training with this and she will require more.
She has never lived with a cat, but judging by the way she barks at the one living next door I would say she is not suitable to live with a cat. She is untested with any other animal type.
Luna is fairly typical for a BC- she requires a very active lifestyle, and can engage in digging if she has not been given enough exercise. She is is also very affectionate and is insatiable when it comes to pats and cuddles.
Lastly, Luna has some ongoing health issues. She has been diagnosed with epilepsy. It is a mild case, she only has seizures once every few months at this point. The vet has said it is impossible to know whether this will ever get any worse. It has not worsened in the time that we have had her. She does not require medication at the moment as the seizures are so infrequent and last only a short time (10-20 seconds). The epilepsy itself does not really effect Luna much at this stage, and neither does it come with veterinary costs at this stage. There is of course the possibility that it could in the future. We have been told by our vet that worst case is that she requires an anti-epiletic medication which she will need to take everyday. We have been told they are comparatively inexpensive tablets. She require this medication if her seizures become much more frequent, i.e. several times a week and/or last for more the 1 minute start to finish. She is currently a long way off meeting either of these criteria.
This is not the reason we are looking to rehome Luna, but I felt was essential to disclose, as it is part of the package.
The decision to rehome Luna has been an agonising one for us. We love her dearly, and I suppose that really is part of the reason. We feel she deserves to be somewhere she can receive more attention than we can give at the moment. With our young family and various other demands and stresses we are unable to meet her needs.
We are not needing to urgently rehome her and as such will not treat this as a first in situation. We are happy to take our time to make sure she will be going to the very best new home. Ideally, we would love to see her go to someone with space, a doggy sibling and above all, time to give to exercising, continuing training and cuddling her.
If you feel you could provide Luna with a loving home please message me and we can go from there.
