About Adam

Border Collie
2 to 5 Years


Adam is a incredibly shy dog who needs experienced owners who may have had a dog like him before. He is looking for a quiet, adult only home with one or two owners who have the time to help him progress with his socialisation and training. Adam is lacking in doggy social skills too so this also needs some work. His perfect home will be in a quiet area, as he can be worried by noise and traffic. Once he gets to know you and bonds, he is very loving and he adores his carers. He also is very energetic and playful with them.

Type of home needed

If you think that Adam sounds like a dog that you could help to settle into his new home and become a happier chap, then ask to speak to a member of the training team about him. Adam will require multiple visits on a regular basis to the centre so that owners can get to know him and work with the training team to help him transition better into his new home, so it would be ideal for owners to live local to the centre. Adam will proably need to be the only dog in his new home (though possibly may live with a very quiet girl dog).

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Adam, who is based at Darlington. 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.
