This is Ben who came into my life a week ago. Found as a stray and around 8 years old. Believed to be a farm dog. Is going blind and has a heart murmur but he says he feels just fine!

Handsome Ben! He looks like a happy dog.

Ooh, he is so handsome! I love the cuff of white hair around his neck! How tall did he stand? What weight?

He is 22.50 kg and stands about 23 inches high at the rump. He was underfed when the rescue got him and they think they might have overcompensated by feeding him a little too much. But my vet said he is now only marginally over if at all. I think he might be a fraction slimmer now than when I got him. Same amount of food but more exercise.

He is stockier than most collies round here. Lovely nature. He just wants to please.
