About Luca

Border Collie
2 to 5 Years


Luca is a 2-year-old Collie who has lots to offer! He's a fun and enthusiastic character who both loves his food and loves to learn. Engaging with Luca by providing him with lots of fun, reward-based training is a perfect way to begin to build up a bond with him. Once he's formed a relationship with you, he'll be a friend for life!

Type of home needed

Luca dreams of an adult-only household with no visiting children and not too many visitors. He cannot live with cats, but could potentially live with another canine with a steady and tolerant character. Luca loves to be outdoors and will need a garden of his own at home. He'd be happiest walking in quiet areas where he can relax and feel at ease. Due to Luca's love of human company, he can often feel unsettled when left. His new owners should always be around initially to keep him company before he gradually learns to settle.

More about me

Luca thrives on structure and routine so would love to find a stable home where he can seek comfort in security. If you're an experienced dog owner who gains reward in seeing a dog progress and develop as a result of your own love and guidance, then Luca would love to meet you.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Luca, 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 £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.
