About Poppy

Collie Cross (Border)
1 to 2 Years


Poppy is a very energetic young lady who loves to be out and about in the countryside. She likes other dogs, playing with toys and using her brain for problem-solving. Poppy is not used to car travel so a forever home in a rural location would be ideal.

Type of home needed

Poppy is a gorgeous young lady who could potentially live with another dog, after successful mixing here at the centre. She is looking for an adult only home with owners who can visit her multiple times, take her for walks, bond and become great friends. Due to her high energy levels, Poppy will need a good-size, secure garden, where she can play safely off-lead. She would also benefit from having a 'safe space' in her new home - a utility room or outdoor kennel, where she can take herself to, should she want some alone time.

More about me

Poppy is a beautiful, 18 month old Collie cross who's looking for an active forever home, with owners who are happy to follow training programs with support from our behaviour team.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Poppy, who is based at Salisbury. 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.
