About Tess:

Tess is a medium-sized, female Bearded Collie X, aged 12 years old.


Tess is an old girl who was left on the farm by her old owner when we took over last year so we are unsure  how old she actually is. She is a sweet girl but is getting on in age and I feel like she needs a home where she can have a bed inside next to the fire.

Is Tess used to children? Yes.
Is Tess used to cats? Yes.
Is Tess toilet-trained? Don’t know.
Is Tess used to stock? Yes.
Is Tess used to chickens? Yes.
How well does Tess get on with other dogs? OK.
Tess lives in Inglewood, North Island.
A bit about Tess’s personality:

Tess is good with our cats but chases the strays. Also good with our kids but our kids have grown up with dogs. She gets on fine with our male dog and often steals his bed and food. She doesn’t bother our chickens or lambs either. Tess doesn’t chase stock but will bark when rounding them up. She also barks whenever she sees someone coming up the road.
