About Rex

Collie Cross (Border)
2 to 5 Years


Rex is a lovely lad who enjoys the simple things in life, getting outside for interesting walks, playing with his toys and getting plenty of cuddles and attention from his human friends. Being an extremely clever chap, Rex loves to learn new things and is always ready to show you how clever he is, especially for a tasty treat or two.

Type of home needed

Rex is a handsome young man who would need to be the only dog in the home, but is happy to have doggy-pals when out and about. Due to his sensitive nature, we would recommend that he adult only . He's an active chap who enjoys being outside, so a good-size, fully secure garden will be needed for him to explore and play off-lead. Rex is looking for calm, patient owners who can dedicate time to his training.

More about me

Rex is an adorable Collie cross who would love to find new owenrs who would be happy to visit him a few times at the centre before adoption so you can all get to know eachother before going home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Rex, who is based at Salisbury. 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.
