About Rosie

Collie Cross (Border)
2 to 5 Years


Pretty Rosie is a gentle collie who loves to talk to people by "woo"-ing at them! She would thrive in a home with an active family who have lots of time to give her walks and will happily play ball until the sun goes down. Rosie can be very shy when it comes to being touched around her head and ears, so she needs people who will handle her gently. She gets vey excited at playtimes and this is when the true, playful Rosie shines through.

Type of home needed

Rosie gets along quite well with other dogs but can be shy - she was attacked at one point by two small dogs, so her worry is understandable. Once she's comfortable though, she loves to play with other dogs and could live with a suitable match. A home in a quiet or rural area would suit Rosie best as she is wary of traffic. Rosie is housetrained and can be left alone for a couple of hours. She can live with sensible children aged 10 and up.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Rosie, who is based at Merseyside. 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.
