About Teller

Collie Cross (Border)
1 to 2 Years


Teller is a shy but friendly boy who builds a bond quite quickly. He is very loving and enjoys a fuss and affection but time needs to be taken with this, a slow and calm approach is needed. Teller enjoys going for quiet walks where he doesn't have to feel overwhelmed by lots going on. Teller enjoys the company of other dogs, he has been sharing his kennel and he is very playful with them. He isn't yet ready to play with toys, he doesn't seem to know what toys are all about!

Type of home needed

Teller is looking for loving and caring adopters who will take things at Teller's pace, Teller is not used to living in a home and will need lots of praise, encouragement and confidence building. Adopters should come to the centre a few times to build a bond. Teller is sensitive to noises and will need a quiet home environment. Teller could live with quiet older teenagers and possibly another playful dog, but no cats. He will need access to quiet walks and a large garden. Time left will need to be built up gradually once he is settled into his new home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Teller, who is based at Ilfracombe. 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.
