About Bailey

Collie Cross (Border)
1 to 2 Years


Bailey is a rather shy chap who lacks in confidence. He can be very anxious about new people touching him, but with slow introductions he does relax and will accept a gentle fuss. He is a bright boy who enjoys learning. He already has some basic training and can't wait to learn more. He also loves to play with his toys and especially enjoys playing with tennis balls.

Type of home needed

Bailey is going to be a long term project dog who needs experience and plenty of patience. Bailey will take a while to settle in to his home, and has struggled in the past with adjusting to being a pet. Ideally his new family will be a max of 2 people based in a rural setting. Knowledge of body language will be vital, and a family keen to do positive but gently paced training will be great. Bailey needs a secure garden, with at least 6ft fencing.

More about me

Bailey would need to be the only dog in his new home and have no neigbouring dogs. Bailey needs an adult only environment, and ideally minimal visitors. He can be left alone for short periods and has previously been housetrained

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Bailey, who is based at Evesham. 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.
