About Ryder

Collie Cross (Border)
2 to 5 Years


Ryder is Ace! What more can we say? He's a super fun boy who is just bursting with bubbly personality. He may not look much like a Collie, but his personality is full of Collie breed traits. He loves being active and gets really playful, especially with toys. He is very friendly with everyone he meets around the centre and loves to say hello with a waggy tail and big smiley face. He's a bit worried by other dogs and much prefers the company of humans. If you are looking for a fun dog with lots of potential for training then Ryder is your boy!

Type of home needed

Ryder would love a new home with owners who are passionate about dog training. He likes to have his mind kept active as well as his body. He'll enjoy lots of outdoor activites, especially long walks in quiet areas away from other dogs. He'll need his owners around all the time initially to settle him in to his new life, but we hope in time that he may be ok on his own for small amounts of time if built up gradually. Ryder likes to know his owners are close by and will likely need to sleep in the bedroom. He will be fine with children over 10 years old who want a fun dog to play with. He'll need to be the only pet as he likes all the fuss and attention!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Ryder, who is based at Leeds. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £150 (£140 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees),for puppies its £150 adoption fee plus a £45 Dog School fee but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you can receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
