About Dexter

Collie Cross (Border)
1 to 2 Years


Dexter is a handsome Collie Cross, aged approximately five-years. Friendly to all who he meets, this sociable lad is always keen to interact with people and enjoys receiving lots of love in return. He's a lively boy, looking for owners who can provide him with plenty of opportunities to express his active nature. Fun adventures where he can meet up with lots of like-minded dogs along the way would be perfect.

Type of home needed

Despite his happy-go-lucky character, Dexter does have a sensitive side and a few worries about the world around him. His potential owners will need to get to know him well so they can read his body language and be sure to not overwhelm him. He'll need some extra support with building up some confidence around handling, car travel and traffic. Dexter LOVES the company of other dogs out and about and often looks to his pals to boost his courage. Dexter can share his home with teens over the age of 14 and cannot live with cats. He will need to be the only dog at home, but would love doggy pals out and about to play with.

More about me

Dexter really can't wait to settle into some home comforts with a loving family and doggy-pal at his side

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Dexter, 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 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.
