Dogs Trust

COVID-19 info: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public but you can still adopt some of our dogs: take a look at their profiles to see which ones. We’ve set up a new rehoming process which includes social distancing measures to help keep staff and adopters safe.

Hello, I'm Ernie

Border Collie

About me

I'm a tennis ball obsessed Border Collie who loves a game of fetch! In fact, there's only one thing I love more than my tennis balls and that's swimming! You'll often find me having a splash around in the local rivers and ponds! My poor carers always get soaked when I'm shaking the water out of my fur!

Why I need sponsoring

I can be really worried by new people and I get really nervous if they try to touch me. This means I've struggled to find the perfect home, but thankfully my lovely carers know all of my little quirks and I couldn't be happier at Dogs Trust!
