About Jimmy

Collie Cross (Border)
5 to 7 Years


Jimmy is a beautiful, slightly older boy, who has got a nervous side to him. Despite this, Jimmy loves playing with his toys, especially if it involves a game of fetch! Jimmy can be a bit unsure of people he doesn't know, and prefers them to be hands off with him until he gets to know them a bit better.

Type of home needed

Jimmy is looking for an adult only home with owners who will let him settle into his new surrounds at his own pace. He will happily go for walks with other dogs, as long as they don't bounce all over him however he will need to be the only pet in his new home. Jimmy has not been in a home before, so the time that he is left on his own will need to be built up gradually, leaving him with toys and puzzles to keep his collie brain entertained!

More about me

New owners would need to visit Jimmy a few times before taking him home in order to get to know him at his own pace. Can you offer this fun loving lad the home he is looking for?

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Jimmy, who is based at Kenilworth. 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.
