About Charlie

Border Collie
2 to 5 Years


Charlie is a 2 year old Border Collie, he is a bouncy and playful boy who lacks confidence in himself and would love new owners who can help him build it up. He would benefit from Collie experienced owners who can help him channel his potential and energy into training and games. He will thrive in a rural area away from the hustle of busy town life.

Type of home needed

Charlie is looking for an active home with owners who can help him build his confidence and training at his own pace. He is very responsive to training and is currently undergoing training programmes at the centre, these will need to be continued in the home with support from our training team. He will need owners who can be around a majority of the day and build up any time left. Charlie will need a secure garden or enclosed space he can excerise and play.

More about me

Charlie needs to be the only pet in the home Charlie would best suit an adult only home. This boy has so much potential and he will be a fantastic companion and great fun! Multiple visits required, To enquire about rehoming Charlie please email [email protected] or call to discuss suitability. Due to Charlies rehoming needs we would like to rehome him within half an hour travelling distance of the centre.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Charlie, 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.
