    The Dog Aid Society’s Old Dog Scheme covers dogs re-homed at 8 years old or above. This means that the Society will cover costs for veterinary care for the dog for the remainder of their life within reason. We do not cover costs for routine treatments such as vaccinations, worming and flea treatment. If the dog requires special dietary food we will contribute 50% of the cost.

    This will alleviate the worry of the financial implications taking an older dog into your home. Older dogs make great pets! Why not consider an older dog?

Treacle's Profile

Treacle is a very friendly girl looking for a new home through no fault of her own.

Treacle loves a good walk and is very good with adults and children when she is out and about. She will greet house visitors with a wagging tail. Treacle loves to play fetch with a ball and to be praised. As much as she loves to play, she also loves to sleep and is perfectly happy to take a nap during the day. But she can also be very energetic when out on a walk and could walk for a long time.

Treacle is generally quite relaxed, but does not like travelling by car as she gets very nervous, yet she is still good at getting into the car herself. She also does not like the end of her back being brushed or touched. Treacle behaves alright on the lead, but she does pull a lot which is something that could be worked on. Her recall off-lead is not that good and should be something to be aware of and worked on as well.

Above all, Treacle loves to get attention and for people to make a fuss of her. Treacle is ideally looking for a new home with Border Collie experience, a secure garden, and the time to go on long walks, play fetch, and give her all the attention she needs. Treacle has a very cheery nature and a laid back temperament that would make her a perfect companion.
