Border Collie

Biki Border Collie

“She’s got tonnes of energy and is extremely active so we’re looking for a new owner who will be able to keep up with her on long walks and play sessions in the garden.

“She’s incredibly sweet, once she gets to know you, and is very obedient, simply wanting to please."

Bouncy border collie Biki is full of life and bursting with energy - which seems to have been a little bit much for previous owners to handle.

Now the sweet-natured three-year-old is hoping to find her paw-fect match - an owner who can keep up with her on walks and on the pitch.
