Breed:

Sex:
Female

Likes

Lilly is a sweet girl who has a shy side. She was a stray before she came to us and had recently had a litter. It is likely that she has never lived in a home before. Lilly shows very strong breed traits such as herding so would be best suited to people who have had collies before. Lilly has socialised with male and female dogs of her size and larger, care should be taken with smaller/toy breeds as she may stalk them. Lilly knows sit and is likely to enjoy training once settled. Lilly can be worried by new people, especially men so will need lots of time to get to know people and a quiet home/area.

Type of home needed

Lilly is looking for collie experienced owners. She should be the only pet in the home but must be kept well socialised. She needs a home with a garden in a quiet area preferably with access to peaceful walks until she has gained confidence with car travel. Leaving hours will need to be built up slowly once Lilly is used to home life.

More about me

Because Lilly can be such a nervous girl she asks that her new family are adult only.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Lilly, 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.
