Colin has been on quite a journey since we’ve known him.

Originally he was in Silverdale Animal Shelter, and when the vet was checking him over to get him desexed and ready for his new home, they discovered he had a very serious and rare condition, persistent right aortic arch. This meant he needed surgery to correct or he would struggle to live a normal life.

Thankfully the amazing team at @albany vet hospital agreed to do this surgery, but in the meantime he needed to be on a special slurry diet to ensure he didn’t choke as this would have been the end of him.

Everything was set in place for surgery, and then lockdown happened so it couldn’t go ahead!

Luckily Colin hit the jackpot with a foster mum who is a vet nurse and she looked after him while the shelter waited for the country to open up, and a surgery date.

Colin has now had his surgery, has healed well and will have no ongoing issues, so now it’s time to complete all the pieces in his puzzle and find him a forever home.

Colin is part collie and as such will need someone active who wants a sweet, funny friend. He is great with 99% of dogs and just loves life!

No cats for this guy, and no stock. Someone who wants a great companion or running buddy who will make you laugh every day is exactly what he needs!

Colin needs someone who is willing to spend the time building a relationship and trust. Someone who understands dogs are not perfect the minute you get them and can put in the effort with our guidance. Once this trust is gained he is just the best boy and will love you with everything he has!  

If this boy sounds like what you’ve been looking for apply today!
