Hello, I am Grace. I shall begin by telling you about my 8-year-old border collie named Midge. As she is a farm dog, she likes to stay with my parents in the Highlands. On the farm she makes herself busy by pestering anyone nearby to play fetch and while also acting as *guard dog*. I raised her from when she was 8 weeks old when I was still in high school, with very little help from my mum and dad. I think I did a very good job, we have a very strong bond and she hasn't forgotten me even when I left for university.
As a family, we have also enjoyed the company of Jake the Jack Russell and Gypsy, a German shepherd cross, who both have sadly passed.
My other experiences with dogs include volunteering st Munlochy Animal Aid. For a few hours each weekend I would help out by cleaning kennels and walking dogs. Some of the dogs had suffered abuse or neglect and were not easy to handle. But my time there has given me experience in working with dogs need a little more patience or extra love when caring for them.
I am a full-time PhD student who wants to spend more time with dogs. I am responsible, caring and mostly flexible.I work normal hours most weekdays, but can make exceptions depending on availability. I have a car which will come in handy if potential dog/s have some extra luggage or for going that bit further for the perfect walk :)
