About Colin

Jack Russell Terrier (JRT)
5 to 7 Years


Colin is a handsome little 5 year old Jack Russell Terrier with the softest coat! He is a real little charmer and you cant help but fall in love with him! Colin LOVES people and their company, he likes to be with you lending a helping paw. Colin is a playful boy, he enjoys chasing after a ball or exploring on his walks, he is a real active little lad.

Type of home needed

Colin is looking for a home with owners who are around most of the day and can build up anytime he is left. He would thrive in a calm but active home where he can be with you. He has some good basic training and even knows how to high 5! he would benefit from some refresher training in his new home as he settles in and adjusts. Colin loves his home comforts in his foster home and loves to go out and make friends, he is happy to walk as much as you want too.

More about me

Colin could potentially live with another small, calm dog in his new home or as an only dog with someone who can be around alot. Colin could live with children aged 11 years and over. He is a gorgeous little boy who will be a very loving companion. Colin can not live with cats. **Colin is in a foster home, please call before visiting**

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Colin, who is based at Newbury. 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.
