Likes

Jumbo is a handsome, clever collie who enjoys learning new things. He is affectionate and cuddly with people he knows but can be worried by strangers approaching him. He loves walking and socialising with other dogs. Jumbo is a sweetheart once you get to know him and will make a rewarding companion if you're willing to put time into building a bond with him.

Type of home needed

Jumbo is looking for an adult only home, with patient, understanding owners who are willing to visit him several times at the Centre before taking him home. Jumbo is looking for a home where he can have walking doggie friends when out and about, however in the home he would like all of the attention for himself, so would like to be the only dog in the home. He needs an active home where he can enjoy lovely walks and ongoing training.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Jumbo, 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 £130 (£110 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.
