About Rosie

Collie Cross (Border)
0 to 6 Months


Rosie is a pretty, dainty little collie who is looking for a family that can give her a quiet and steady life. She is struggling to settle in kennels, as it is such a busy and unpredictable environment. She does have a very playful side, and gets very excited when it comes to toys. She loves to chase after them but hasn't quite mastered the retrieve! She responds very well to lots of silly talk, but likes to approach you rather than have you come to her.

Type of home needed

Rosie would probably do well with another dog in the home as she looks to her pal Jemima for confidence. If Jem is OK with you, then Rosie is OK with you! A quiet pal would be ideal, as a livelier one may be too over-stimulating for her. Rosie can live with children aged 14 and over, but they will need to be understanding of her nervousness, and the need for a slow approach. We don't think Rosie is housetrained, so there's some work to be done with her yet.

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.
