Oldies Club

The Oldies Club helps older dogs find forever homes. Homes and volunteers needed across the UK.

Tagged with 'Collies & Shepherds'

Please also consider our Overlooked Oldies- the dogs who have been patiently waiting for new homes longest of all. They desperately need homes of their own! You can submit an oldie for listing by our site editors here .

We also have some non-oldie dogs who need very special homes due to mental or physical problems, listed in Other Special Dogs Needing Homes. Please consider them!

You can also browse all dogs needing homes by size, type, and what sort of home might be suitable here ->

Niki and Boseley (Algernon Trust Animal Sanctuary, kennelled Lincs)

Niki and Boseley (Algernon Trust Animal Sanctuary, kennelled Lincs)

When Niki and Boseley lost their home and family, all they had left was each other. This devoted pair is seeking someone who has a home and heart big enough for them both and who will love them for the rest of their lives. Both dogs are good with children, other dogs and cats and are still energetic for their age, particularly Boseley who loves to play! Algernon Trust realises it is difficult to rehome two large dogs together and is reluctantly considering splitting them up. However, they hope this pair’s perfect owner is reading this and can offer these two lovelies a permanent or long-term foster home where they can stay together. Are you that person?
