About Riley

Border Collie
6 to 12 Months


This handsome young lad is Riley! He's just 8 months old and is searching for his forever home! Riley likes his treats which will be really good to use for his further training. Here at the centre Riley just loves playing off lead with his doggy best friends as he's really dog friendly and loves saying hello to every dog he meets. Riley must live with another dog pending a successful meet here at the centre.

Type of home needed

Riley can be nervous so would require a few meets before he can pack his bags ready for his new home. He will need his own secure garden away from busy/main roads and car travel has to be non essential. Riley's new home would have to be somewhere quiet so he can have nice calm walks in quiet areas. He is looking for patient and committed owners who can work on building his confidence over time. Knowledge of the breed is essential, experience is preferable. He can live with children 16 plus who can give him space when he needs it.Riley must live in a home with no cats or small furries.

More about me

Riley likes a calm fuss once he gets to know you, and will no doubt make the perfect companion for you! If you have the time to work on his confidence and think he's the perfect boy for you then please visit the centre between 12&5 weekdays and 10&4 weekends during daylight hours.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Riley, 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 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.
