About Patch

Collie Cross (Border)
1 to 2 Years


Patch is a lively 1 year old collie cross. He is always eager to say hello to everybody he meets but can get a little over the top at times, however his foster carers are working on his manners. He loves meeting new doggy friends and is keen to play but he can be excitable so needs to have doggy friends who are happy with his enthusiasm.

Type of home needed

Patch is looking for active owners that have experience with collie types and are at home for some of the day to help him settle. Patch can live with adults and will need his own secure garden. Patch is currently living with a 3 other dogs in his foster home where he loves hikes at the weekends and is showing to have a good nose and could maybe do some scent work or even canicross. Patch would benefit from living with another dog.

More about me

Patch is a very sweet boy and will make a fantastic companion for an active home. He would really love a job to keep both mentally and physically satisfied. Patch is currently living in a foster home, please contact the centre to find out more about him on 01506 873459.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Patch, who is based at West Calder. 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 £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), 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.
