Blue is keen to meet new people but also finds this troubling so needs owners who are prepared to take everything really slowly and make multiple and regular visits to build a bond with her. Once she knows you, she will enjoy your company! Blue finds loud noises, children and traffic worrying. She has met several dogs here but Blue will need to be the only pet in the home. Blue is very stressed here in kennels and although she knows several commands, training will need to be at her pace. She is a high energy dog!

Type of home needed

Blue is looking for owners who have experience of collies/nervous dogs. She is looking for a home that is rural and away from roads and children. New owners will need to be around for most of the day and build up leaving hours very slowly. Our behaviourist will talk to you about Blue's sensitivities. She needs to be the only pet in the home. Visitors will also need to be built up very slowly.

More about me

Blue asks that her new home is asult only so she can feel as comfortable as she can.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Blue, who is based at London (Harefield). 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.
