Covid-19 update: our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing, but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with measures in place to keep staff and adopters safe. Find out more about how national Covid-19 restrictions are affecting our rehoming procedures and other activity.

Our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with new processes in place to keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

For dogs we know will thrive straight away in their new home, we’re matching them with their new homes virtually and delivering them contact-free. Current restrictions mean we can only facilitate adoptions local to our centres and not across Countries or anywhere there are travel restrictions. We’re not able to make appointments for dogs to meet their family before going home, but we can register interest to arrange appointments when restrictions ease.

We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest, with some dogs getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

We are still taking interest in Trooper; however, he does require multiple visits from potential adopters and due to current lockdown restrictions we are unable to undertake these visits at this time. To place an interest, please click on the 'Come and Meet Me' button.

Type of home needed

Trooper is a two year old Border Collie. He is quite a complex chap with a very sensitive nature. He is looking for a very experienced, adult only home with experience of the breed who will allow him the time and space to settle into his new home. Potential owners will need to be willing to be consistent and positive with their handling of Trooper as he will react to any forceful handling. Trooper loves other dogs, but can quite boisterous and full on when greeting them, so he would definitely benefit from more socialising. He could live with another dog in the home, as long as that dog can cope with his play style. Unfortunately, Trooper is unable to live with cats, we not sure about small furries.

More about me

Trooper does suffer from Epilepsy and potential owners should be aware that there is a financial commitment required for his medical costs. Trooper is a sweet boy at heart and in the right home, he will be a loving companion.

 

In these unprecedented circumstances, we're doing everything we can to continue our vital work caring for thousands of stray and abandoned dogs. If you'd like to help, please make a donation. Your support means so much, now more than ever.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Trooper, who is based at Bridgend (Wales). Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. If you think you could be a good match give us a call on the number below

Our rehoming process is a bit different at the moment! We’re now matching dogs with their new families virtually and delivering dogs to their new homes, with social distancing measures in place to help keep staff and adopters safe. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can come and meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. More info about how our new rehoming process works below.

When you rehome a dog, we’ll give you your welcome bag, which includes a new collar and lead, and our dog care handbook with microchip and insurance details. Plus, to help your new addition settle in we’ll give you a 2kg bag of Wainwright’s dry dog food, courtesy of the Pets at Home VIP Club, unless they have been fed on a different food for dietary or veterinary reasons.
