Likes

Sammy is a 18 month old Collie, he is a very worried boy who hasnt had much socilaising with the world around him so is taking everything slowly, at his own pace so he can build up his confidence. He does love his toys which helps him to cope in stressful situations.

Type of home needed

Sammy is looking for a calm and understanding home who can take the time he needs to build up his confidence and introduce him to everything slowly, he will need time to get to know you. Sammy will need ongoing training done at his own pace as he settles, he is motivated by food which will help. Sammy will need owners who are around for a majority of the day to start.

More about me

Sammy will need to be the only pet in the home and have time to adjust to his new home and build his confidence before socialising. He is looking for an adult only home with owners who can help him chanel his energy into play and training, he has so much potential and is such a gorgeous dog! To enquire about rehoming Sammy please email [email protected], Due to Sammy's rehoming needs he is not on show at the centre and can be met by appointment only.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Sammy, 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 £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.
