We’re now matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can now meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment and this now applies to all of our rehoming centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

I'm looking for a new home...

Likes

Charlie is a sweet 4 year old Collie cross looking for his very special home. He loves to play with his toys, especially fetch and you will often find him bringing back his tennis ball so you can throw the next one! Charlie appreciates saying hello to other dogs as long as they are of a calmer nature and does like to play offlead with doggy friends here at the centre. He is a really clever and active boy so would relish being at the heart of an active and energetic home.

Type of home needed

Charlie can be worried by new people and because of this is looking for a predictable home with adults only. As he loves his toys so much, he would need his own secure garden so he can spend hours playing with them and you! The home must be in a rural area that is set back from any roads/paths. A home that doesn't have many visitors will suit him best. Charlie would need his walks to be in quiet areas as he can be wary of new people and these would need to be easily accessible near the home without having to bump into many people. The home will need to be non open plan and Charlie is not to have access to the front door due to this. He will need to be the only dog in the home due to still being unsure of some dogs, but owners should continue his socialisation out and about. He cannot live with any other pets. Charlie is fine to be left alone for a few hours and once you have built a bond with him, he is sure to show his affectionate side.

More about me

Charlie is on a lead and muzzle disclaimer, which means he will need to be kept on lead and muzzled everytime he is out. Charlie has been introduced to his muzzle gradually and positively during training and his adopters will be given guidance on using the muzzle by our behaviour team. Please note under the current coronavirus restrictions we will be doing multiple visits with Charlie at the centre following social distancing criteria.

 

During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs. This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Charlie, who is based at Manchester. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. If you think you could be a good match give us a call on the number below

Our rehoming process is a bit different at the moment! We’re now matching dogs with their new families virtually and delivering dogs to their new homes, with social distancing measures in place to help keep staff and adopters safe. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can come and meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. We can’t register interest for dogs who aren’t available for rehoming. More info about how our new rehoming process works below.

When you rehome a dog, we’ll give you your welcome bag, which includes a new collar and lead, and our dog care handbook with microchip and insurance details. Plus, to help your new addition settle in we’ll give you a 2kg bag of Wainwright’s dry dog food, courtesy of the Pets at Home VIP Club, unless they have been fed on a different food for dietary or veterinary reasons.
