A THREE-YEAR-OLD Collie crossbreed is celebrating her first Christmas in her new home having been newly adopted from the Dogs Trust in Salisbury. 

Dee arrived at the Dogs Trust in Salisbury in March this year and was nervous and easily scared by unfamiliar people and noises and was unused to living indoors but with general training at the Trust, Dee worked really hard and learned how to walk on the lead. 

Canine Carer at the Dogs Trust, Jessica Long took a real shine to Dee and applied to adopt her.

Centre manager, Claire Rowe, said: “Dee arrived at the centre after a tough start to life. After lots of love and hard work from our wonderful staff, Dee started to become more confident, and she has come on leaps and bounds in her training.

“Dee and Jess have a great bond, and it is fantastic that Jess has been able to adopt her. I hope they have a wonderful Christmas together."

Jessica Long, Canine Carer at Dogs Trust Salisbury, said: “I was absolutely delighted to welcome Dee into my home. This lovely girl now lives with two Border Collies. She loves going out for walks – although some things can still be a little scary.

“I'm more than grateful I got to work with her and welcome her into my home, where she now has her own family who love her unconditionally.”
