About Carter

Collie Cross (Border)
1 to 2 Years


Carter is an excitable 1 year old Collie X who is full of beans and cant wait to find his forever home. He enjoys getting out about with his carers here at the centre for interesting walks or playing with toys with them in one of our exercise compounds. He can be worried by handling so will need calm owners who can give him time.

Type of home needed

Carter is looking for a home with a confident, playful dog that can be his playmate and life coach, He could potentially be an only dog with someone who is home for a majority of the day and able to continue his socialising. He is looking to live in a relatively quiet home, potentially with children over 14 years. Time being left will need to built up over time as he settles into home life. He would enjoy a home with active owners who can keep him busy.

More about me

Carter has some good basic training but being young he will need continued training so he can grow in confidence. Carter has alot of potential and will really thrive in a home where he could potentially go to puppy classes to continue his socialising. Multiple visits will be required for Carter to get to know you.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Carter, who is based at Newbury. 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.
