About Marcus

Collie Cross (Border)
8 and over


Marcus is a Collie Cross, aged approximately 8 years. He's a friendly chap with a sensitive side and a big love for food. He may take his time to get to know you, but once he's built a bond he'll show you his affection and enjoy a gentle fuss.

Type of home needed

Marcus can live with teenagers over the age of 16 and will need to be the only pet in the household as he's not so keen to share his favourite things and would rather keep himself to himself. His perfect home would be somewhere peaceful, situated in the countryside with access to quiet walks and without too many visitors coming and going. Marcus has a few training needs, so he's hopeful to find experienced owners who are ready and willing to support him (our training team will be able to provide further information on this).

More about me

His new owners should be aware that Marcus has limited eyesight that may progressively worsen over time. This means that he's looking for a consistent lifestyle where he can easily navigate his surroundings and avoid changes such as moving to a new house, altering furniture layout and going on holidays etc.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Marcus, who is based at Shoreham. 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 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.
