About Shep

Collie Cross (Border)
5 to 7 Years


Shep is a sweet chap with a sensitive side. It will take him time to build trust in new people, but after allowing him the time he needs, you'll begin to start the foundations of a life-long friendship. Once Shep is your pal, he'll relish your company & will show you how affectionate he can be. He really enjoys his food, including treat training, settling down with a chew or a food puzzle.

Type of home needed

Much more of a 'ladies' man', Shep can be worried by strangers but is particularly wary of men. His potential owners must be willing to spend time coming to the centre on several occasions to get to know him and he cannot live in a male-only household. He is looking for a quiet, adult-only home with minimal visitors and with no more than three people, so he can build a strong enough bond with those around him. Shep enjoys the company of other friendly dogs so he could have walking buddies, but he will need to be the only pet at home. Relaxing walks in rural, quiet areas are essential, as is a garden of his own to spend time in.

More about me

Shep has some insecurities about the world and is hoping to find understanding owners who could help develop his confidence by participating in positive, reward-based training. He will make a loyal and loving companion to his Special Someone.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Shep, 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.
