I'm looking for a new home...

About Charlie

Border Collie
5 to 7 Years


Charlie has lived in a home before and was housetrained and ok to be left alone for a few hours as long as he has things to keep him occupied. He loves his toys especially raggy ones and tennis balls. He would play fetch all day if you let him. He is very much a typical Collie with lots of energy and enthusiasm!

Type of home needed

Charlie is a very lively boy who is looking for a quiet but active adult only home with new owners that will have lots of time to exercise him as he likes to be kept on the go. He has got some insecurities that will need to be worked on once he goes into his new home under the guidance of the behaviourists here at the centre. He can be wary of new people so a home with minimal visitors would be preferred and he will need to be walked muzzled when out and about. He will need to be the only pet as he prefers his own space. New owners would need to be prepared to make a few visits to the centre before taking Charlie home so that they can get to know him. He is a very intelligent boy who would enjoy being taught new tricks!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Charlie, who is based at Kenilworth (West Midlands). 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.
