About Murphy

Collie Cross (Border)
2 to 5 Years


Murphy is a 2 year old Border Collie, he can be worried on first meetings but given some time and paitence he starts to show his sweet nature. Murphy loves to play with his toys and enjoys some zoomie time around the compounds, he is an active boy who loves to be on the go!

Type of home needed

Murphy would suit an active home who can help him channel his energy into play and training. He would thrive in a quiet home environment where he can have time to settle in at his own pace and build up a relationship with you. Murphy is a very clever boy and loves to interact with you and as his confidence grows, he would enjoy some ongoing training as he settles in, he also loves brain games. Murphy would like new owners who can build up his time left.

More about me

Murphy would be happy as an only dog with continued socialising out on walks. He could live with sensible teenagers aged 16 years and over who are used to dogs. Murphy would like a home away from a busy road a more rural home would suit him best. He has alot of potential waiting to thrive in his new home, once he settles in he will make such a fun addition to the home. If you are interested in Murphy please call to make an appointment to meet him and one of his Traininers, Multiple visits will be required.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Murphy, 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 £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.
