About Ozzy

Collie Cross (Border)
1 to 2 Years


Ozzy is one-year-old Collie who is still learning about all the weird and wonderful ways of life. He's an energetic boy who enjoys spending time with people he knows well and keeping busy with lots of fun enrichment. Ozzy does have a sensitive side, so is looking for patient and dedicated owners who can offer him lots of input, while supporting him through some of his insecurities.

Type of home needed

We have seen a playful streak in Ozzy, but he may just need that extra encouragement for it to flourish. Providing him with plenty of outlets to have fun and use his busy brain will be of great importance. Ozzy will particularly enjoy long-lasting chews, a big box of toys to choose from and materials suitable for shredding. His home and any walking areas will need to be situated away from the busy roadsides as he can be nervous around traffic. It is essential that he has a garden of his own. Ozzy can't live with cats but could potentially live with another dog of a confident, steady nature. He can also share his home with teenagers over the age of 16. It's likely that Ozzy has never been in a home before so it may take a little longer for him to settle in and adjust to his new environment.

More about me

Ozzy has lots of potential to make a very loving and loyal best friend - he's just waiting for the right person to come along! He's currently living in a Temporary Foster Home, so please call our centre in advance of your visit if you'd like to know more about him.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Ozzy, 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.
