Our Dog of the Week is a stunning young merle collie!

Blaze arrived at Newport City Dogs Home this week as a stray, so we don't know much about this gorgeous fella's past, but we do think he's got a fabulous future to look forward to!

He hasn't put a paw wrong since he arrived at the Home. Blaze has beautiful doggy manners, and he absolutely loves chasing balls. He does have some basic training, will sit nicely and gives a high-five paw. He has a clever collie brain that will need lots of stimulation to keep him busy.

Blaze has a few sore skin patches on his back, but it doesn't seem to be bothering him unduly, and it's nothing that a few days of medication and a good nutritious diet won't sort! The staff at the centre would love for Blaze to go to an active household where his collie brain will be kept busy! He would love the chance to try out at agility, flyball, or scentwork. Blaze is definitely not a couch potato!

If you'd like to meet him pop up to Newport City Dogs Home! TEL 01633 290 902 between 11am - 1pm and 2pm - 4pm, on weekdays, 11am - 1pm and 2pm - 3.30pm on Saturday. Please note: the home is CLOSED on Sundays.
