About Donnie

Border Collie
5 to 7 Years


Donnie is a very lively boy who is finding kennel life quite stressful at the moment. He enjoys relaxing in our quieter areas and playing with his toys.

Type of home needed

Donnie has come in to us with very little information but we believe he may have previously been a working dog. He is looking for a quiet but active home with new owners who will have the time to train and exercise him. Owners who have experience of Border Collies would be ideal. He will need to be the only pet in his new home for now and to be walked in quiet areas where there aren't too many distractions. He could live with older sensible teenagers of 14 years or over. If being left alone in the home the time will need to be built up very slowly leaving him with lots to keep him occupied and he may need help with housetraining.

More about me

Donnie will need access to his own secure garden in his new home where he can enjoy his outside space.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Donnie, 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 £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.
