About Hector

Collie Cross (Border)
1 to 2 Years


Hector is a 1 year old Border Collie, he is a really sweet boy with a sweet nature and quirky character, who needs time to get to know you and build a relationship. He loves to go out on an adventure with you, exploring and playing fetch or find it along the way! He also loves brain games and easy win enrichment games.

Type of home needed

Hector is looking for a quiet and calm home, one who can give him the time to build up his confidence at his own pace. Hector has so much potential and is a very bright boy who shows great willing to learn, especially for something tasty! he would love a home who can keep him active, he is a super star with his training! and will need to continue this in the home. He could be left for short periods during the day if it is built up as he settles in.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Hector, who is based at Newbury (Berkshire). 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.
