I'm looking for a new home...

About Oliver

Collie Cross (Border)
8 and over


This handsome boy is a 10 year old collie cross looking for his forever home. Oliver is very affectionate with his human friends and loves a fuss and to spend time with his favourite people and greets them with a very waggy tail! He enjoys having a nice brush of his beautiful coat once he gets to know you. Oliver enjoys a game of fetch and loves to get lots of nice treats especially a peanut butter kong to work his brain! Oliver is super clever and picks up new things really fast, so if you're looking for a dog to do some training with he would be absolutely great for this.

Type of home needed

Oliver is looking for a quieter adult-only home as he can be wary of new people coming into his home and will need a home away from busy roads as he lacks confidence around heavy traffic. He can bark in the car so walks from the house would be ideal and he can bark at some dogs, although is easily distracted, but walks where he doesn't have to encouter lots of dogs would be perfect. He can lead walk with dogs that he knows but will need to be the only dog in the home and has previously lived with a cat. Oliver loves to potter around outside and bask in the sun so a garden for him would be the icing on the cake.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Oliver, 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.
