About Nell

Collie Cross (Border)
2 to 5 Years


Poor Nell has had quite a time of it lately. Her owner passed away and Nell was living between various family members until her arrival with us. She wants attention but doesn't know how to deal with it, so she needs a lot of confidence building, but on her terms. She's trying her best and getting lots of encouragement from us, but what she really needs is a steady home.

Type of home needed

Nell is very worried by men and ideally is looking for a female only home with very few visitors. She gets along with other dogs and we feel Nell would benefit greatly from living with another dog. Due to her having been so unsettled of late, Nell would appreciate a home where she won't be left for very long, at least initially, as there may be potential to become anxious at being by herself. She would also need a quiet household with no children.

More about me

Nell bonds very quickly but we suggest paying a few visits to her at the centre before taking her home, to help her feel more confident.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Nell, 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.
