About Gunner

Rough Collie
8 and over


Refined and a true gentleman Gunner is a gem and will make his new family very happy. An older lad he is looking for a calm retirement home with a private garden where he can put his feet up and enjoy his comforts. He is a stunner and loves being told how handsome he is.

Type of home needed

Gunner is 9 years old and has always lived in a home. He is housetrained, travels well and likes a slow potter about on the lead. His new home must have carpets as he is afraid to walk on hard flooring. He is a wonderful boy and loves to have a brush and pamper in his foster home.

More about me

Gunner would like to be the only pet and live in a settled adult only home. He can be left for short periods but enjoys human company. Gunner is currently in a loving foster home getting lots of TLC.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Gunner, who is based at Basildon. 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.
