About Duke

Border Collie
8 and over


Duke is an 8 year old Collie crossbreed who is looking for an active home. He absolutely loves to keep busy and especially enjoys playing with his toys. He also enjoys meeting new people and learning new tricks.

Type of home needed

Duke would be best suited to a home with children aged 14 years and over. He will also need to be the only dog in the home and would appreciate owners who can continue his dog socialisation.

More about me

Duke will need to go to a home with a medium to large sized secure garden where he can run about to his heart's content. Duke is not a big fan of getting in the car, although he travelled wonderfully to get to us at the Centre. He will need further car work which we will be on hand to help with. If you think you have space in your home & your heart for this delightful chap please come & say hello!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Duke, who is based at Manchester. 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.
