She is still so young yet she has been passed around lots of homes in my short life.

Foster family's are just so amazing.
When i first arrived in rescue......
Bonnie was lucky to be taken in by a lovely woman and her dogs, she then contacted this rescue to help. Bonnie is now in a foster home where she has been given time to trust again and she is loving life. The world is good now and she is so happy.
Bonnie is currently under assessment we have no plans to move her just now, we will wait for the right home to come up for her.
from Bonnies foster mum Amber - July 2020
Bonnie is a fantastic young dog with so much potential. She is young and eager to please, with a collie brain she is intelligent and quick to learn. Bonnie needs a home with a large enclosed garden with high fencing as she can jump (very high!!) She would benefit from a home in the countryside or a more rural location as the city does make her nervous.
Bonnie loves other dogs however as she is only young she needs to learn dog manners, she would benefit from being rehomed with another dog who is able to show her the ways and reassure her that she is safe. She hasn’t lived with cats however she would be suited to a cat free home as she has a high prey drive and tends to chase things that run. She has however made firm friends with a guinea pig in her current foster home. An active home is a must, she requires at least 1/2 hours of exercise a day if not more. She has a tendency to pull when excited however she is improving every day.
Bonnie has been introduced to agility in her current foster home and she loves it, it’s a great way to use her collie brain and tire her out and we feel it is something she would excel in! Bonnie is such an easy dog to be around, she is happy to sit and watch the world go by and is a great companion. She would prefer to be rehomed to someone who is at home most of the time, she doesn’t mind being in her crate but can be anxious when left for longer periods of time. As she is still a pup she can be destructive when left alone and not in a crate.
Bonnie biggest issue lies with people, she hasn’t had the best start in life and therefor she struggles to trust people, she will bark at people she doesn’t know however we are working on this so she needs an owner who is willing to continue her training on this. She is a young pup who is excitable and eager to learn about the world, she will make a fantastic friend to whoever gets the pleasure of adopting her.
