I'm looking for a new home...

About Jimmy

Border Collie
8 and over


Meet Jimmy, he's a super sweet 12 years young collie looking for his forever home. Jimmy is a very friendly boy who loves being with people and having lots of cuddles and attention. He enjoys having his lovely coat brushed and being out and about on lots of new adventures, so don't be fooled by his age, Jimmy is still an active boy! Jimmy enjoys travelling in the car so will be a perfect buddy to go out to lots of new places and explore.

Type of home needed

Jimmy is looking for new owners who can take him out on lots of nice long walks. As an older boy, he does need his space from other dogs, so must be the only dog in the home. He can be wary of other dogs, so Jimmy would benefit from a low dog populated area. Jimmy also needs his own secure garden for lots of off lead fun. He could potentially live with sensible children aged 11 years or more who are able to give him space when he needs to rest.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Jimmy, 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 £150 (£140 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees),for puppies its £150 adoption fee plus a £45 Dog School fee 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 can 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.
