About Robin:

Robin is a medium-sized, male collie-x-heading-dog, aged 3 years old.


Goblin is a sweet, gentle and smart dog rescued from a farm about a year ago. We took him in from a couple who had rescued him from a farm that shut down when he was 2 years old. He is approximately 3 years old.

He’s house trained, great with our toddler, good with other dogs and appears to be unphased by other animals such as my backyard chickens. He is trainable and understands basic commands. He is also very cuddly and just wants to hang out in the evening.

Unfortunately given his farming background and agility, he’s excited and curious about things in the city and is capable of jumping our fence. This is something we haven’t been able to manage adequately living on a busy road near a school – Goblin would be best suited for a lifestyle block or farm. If not at least a home that is not on a busy road.

He is registered, chipped and vaccinated.

A bit about Robin’s personality:

Generally very submissive. Playful and excited and follows his person around wherever they go. When walking in the city, he can be overwhelmed by all the stimuli and want to chase things so will thrive best on a quieter section, lifestyle block or farm.
