I'm looking for a new home...

About Gem

Border Collie
8 and over


Gem is a sweet older lady who is looking for a home with her daughter and best friend Nell. They do get on with other dogs but have spent the last 10 years together and must stay as a pair! Having previous experience of owning a dog is a must and collie experience would be preferred.

Type of home needed

Gem can live with children over the age of 12 years old. They could live with another dog but not with cats. Gem can be hard of hearing so will need a calm and understanding owner who will help her settle. She would love to have a garden to potter in and it should be secure to keep her safe. She loves to play with toys and sunbathe. They prefer to have company so are looking for someone to be around most of the day but could be built up to a few hours.

More about me

Gem would like to meet her new owners a few times before going home to build a relationship. Do you have space for this fabulous pair? Visit our centre to find out more.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Gem, who is based at Glasgow. 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.
