About Goldie

Collie Cross (Border)
2 to 5 Years


Goldie, like a typical collie, loves to play fetch. She will play ball all day long. She can be nervous when meeting new people but once she knows you she likes fuss and you have a friend for life. She's an active girl that loves quiet rural walks.

Type of home needed

Goldie is looking for an understanding adult-only home. She is nervous of strangers so is looking for a quiet home away from the hustle and bustle. She enjoys walking with calm dogs,and has been happily sharing her kennel with another dog, based on a slow introduction done here at the centre, she could possibly live with another dog. She is happy to travel in the car to go for walks. If you have a lovely garden and enjoy playing fetch, maybe Goldie is the dog for you.

More about me

Goldie is in a quieter area of the centre and not on view. If interested in Goldie please contact the centre on 01271 812709 and be available for multiple visits to build a bond with her before adopting.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Goldie, 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), 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 will 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.
