Lol, been in the game a long time and been down that road before, I'd rehome him if I thought both parties involved would benefit, can't see any sides benefiting too easy from this, and I could do with one less to be honest... 

Just having a laugh mate, you do what’s right for yourselves and the dog. The dog looks in great nick and obviously has a great bond with you. Good luck with whatever way you choose.

Tell them to put a roof on the kennel run👍.  Dogs are adaptable and settle if managed sensibly. 

When I was younger I would give a dog away and just convince myself it would settle and be ok and most probably were, but now I keep my dogs till death,I only hunt now for the pleasure of watching the

Well, the situation is like this, I've refused 5 people the dog, from both here and across the pond, and for strong money too from 2...I had my pick of the litter from 2 weeks old, this dog here was 1

I knew that Allan, nó worries, I'd hate to rehome him and both he and the dog suffered

It would be different if he was going down the road or even a drive away but its a bigger issue if the new home goes wrong and you or the new owner got to look at crossing national  borders to get him sorted especially with what that entails at the moment. Would either of you go through a 2 week quarantine to get the dog back home if it didn't work out?

I won't be sending him on I think, there's couriers involved, and 20 hrs travelling, the dog would be half barmy by the time the new owner gets him, he'd be thinking I was off loading my delinquent on him... My friend that took him here from me said he really went off the rails badly, and that was after only 4 hrs,

I have a 12 month old kelpie x here ,and i have him promised to a lad in wales..well i was getting work done out the back last week and a lady and her retired husband took him for a few nights just so id have room to move th dogs around while the man was doing his stuff for me,,they collected him at 7 p.m. and off he went ,slightly distressed in the back of the car as he saw me dissapear into the distance ,..At 12.20 p.m. i get woken up from my sleep to a call from them both asking if they could return the dog,as he was gone ape shit in the house.he was running ,knocking things over,whimpering,howling and in a distressed state,they then put him out in the garden to see if he would chill...jumped the firkin 5 ft wall and went missing into the terraces,found him 30 minutes later thankfully, and i struggle to get the b***%*d to jump at times ,,,so returned he was ..and in general hes the most laid back quiet dog ,but he must have suffered from separation anxiety....at least i know someone loves me ,lol ...so im thinking i couldnt send this dog to anyone as theyd either shoot him or boot him out the door,and ive no idea what im going to tell this lad ..

Just tell him the truth and if he's a decent sort he will take it on. Bloody nice looking young dog that.

That's exactly how I feel about my pure one Ned i.e. it's a good job I like him. 😡

I've even been seriously thinking of swapping my allegiance to a different breed...after twenty three years! He's a great dog, and I'm constantly being told how amazing he is by strangers but he really is hard work compared to the previous ones. One example which made me think the same thing this morning was that Noggin had a crap on the way to the wood so I bagged it up and crossed the road with them to bin it when I suddenly realised that when I had Rusty, Amber and Scout I'd have simply clicked my fingers to lay them down and crossed the road on my tod and they'd have waited for me. There is no way I'd dream of trying that with Ned. Maybe that's not a great example as leaving your dogs untied next to a road seems a bit foolhardy to most, but it's just one of several things I now find myself thinking, "I'd better not; not with Ned; just in case; I'll leave him behind." I think I've said on her before that he reminds me of Tigger or Buddy from the movie "Elf" as he's so bloody overflowing with positivity and enthusiasm. He's having his 'nads removed soon as, after nearly two and a half years, his second one still hasn't descended. Maybe that'll calm the bugger down.

Truth is mate for all the trouble she caused past few weeks I still really like her 😳 it’s better to have serious amounts a drive to work with them a half hearted mutt any day of week, I genuinly think this bitch will settle as soon as harvest is over am season kicks on proper an her work load goes up,  either that or she is just playing me for a fool 😂 either way I admire her spirit, for now 😁

Last week I was walking Noggin and Ned through my local wood and a bloke asked what breed they were. As soon as I said theywere Australian Kelpies he replied, "Ah, the most intelligent breed in the world." 

Maybe your pup is clever enough to know he's better off where he is Jigsaw.😁

He basically is devoted to me, a bit too clingy at times, I will try put some work in front of him and see how it goes
