My name is Lassie.
I’m looking for a good home without frills where I can bring some joy in return for the basics. Following are some background details given to the best of my knowledge and belief.
Aged approx 11 years, born to working parents, I think my mother was some kind of a collie. Aged about six months I was brought to my new home. I had never been in a car before, I was very excited. My new owner was a decent sort living by himself, a hill farmer with bullocks & a few sheep. I fitted in well after some basic training, the work
wasn’t strenuous and the grub was nourishing.
The neighbour’s children brought a bit of excitement into my routine when they came around. I have a “live & let live” attitude to people, animals & other forms of life. We had a neighbouring cat that I loved to chase to start with, I ended up on civil terms with him despite a clawmark I still have on my left ear.
My owner was always kind, serenading me some nights singing “Willie the Mower” at the top of his voice! But he more than compensated for that in treating me kindly. His trips to Bantry brought a bone from the butcher and I was always taken to the vet when needed, and to be neutered.
Things changed when another dog arrived – just wandered into the yard, and then settled in as if he owned the place. He’s a small terrier. As might be expected we had territorial scraps at the outset but became close buddies. Now for the sad bit. My owner died suddenly about six months ago. My buddy, the terrier was adopted by a neighbour and though I still have my home and regular food, there’s no special person in my life to share my love. I am used to living in a barn, being out and about during the day. I don’t want anything fancy, just to hear my name called and nuzzle a friendly hand. I am available for interview at short notice and can give reliable references.
My friends are helping me, they will need to do a homecheck, so if you would
like to find out more about me, contact by email to:

Pip is a male neutered JRT approx. 3 years old.

Pip is a typical Jrt, he has plenty of energy and can sometimes get a bit over excited but in a calm quiet environment is a very sweet little dog.

He walks well on lead but would benefit from some more training and socializing. He has been living with two other female terriers but we feel he may do best in a home where he is the only dog.

We would prefer to home him in a home without young children and in a calm quiet environment. He will need a very secure/fenced garden. Please fill out our rehoming questionnaire when enquiring about rehoming.
