About Blue

Collie: Smooth
6 to 12 Months


Blue is a very friendly colile, not quite a year old, and like most collies, he's finding kennel life to be quite stressful. He can be a little timid when he first meets you but that soon goes out of the window if he thinks you're taking him for walkies. He loves to be outdoors and might be a fantastic walking or running pal. He's certainly going to need lots of exercise, along with mental stimulation such as "find it" games.

Type of home needed

Blue is going to need to be the only dog in the home. He can be quite reactive towards other dogs at th emoment, but this could be down to his current environment. We highly recommend some training classes for him, and socialisation in time, when he has settle in. He was very worrid about being brushed, so we suggest that everything be taken slowly for Blue, at that he isn't rushed in to any situation where he isn't comfortable. He would thrive in a family that knows collies and has children over the age of 12, and will let him use his brain as well as his legs!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Blue, 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.
