About Bailey

Border Collie
8 and over


Bailey is a 10 year old Border Collie. Bailey is a beautiful boy who enjoys going out for his walks and playing with his favourite ball. Bailey loves to be around the people he knows and loves going out in the car and investigating new places where he can spend time rolling in the grass or routing around in the undergrowth.

Type of home needed

Bailey can be mistrustful and worried by people, he needs a quiet home with new owners who know and love the Border Collie breed. He will need owners who are able to give him his own space as he does become defenisve of himself when feeling insecure. He would like a calm and quiet adult only home where there will be no children and very few visitors.

More about me

Bailey travels well in the car, he is house-trained and is able to be left alone. Bailey enjoys the company of quiet dogs but would prefer to be the only pet. Bailey will require several meetings to build up his trust before going to his new home. CALL CENTRE STAFF, please refer all suitable enquiries to the centre for further information.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Bailey, who is based at West Calder (Edinburgh). 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.
