Each year thousands of unwanted dogs end up in rescue centres, many because of their high energy levels. As this is a quality we value in agility, we believe many would make super agility dogs. So if you are looking for another agility dog, think about giving one of these dogs a second chance. We promise to keep a dog on this page for at least six weeks or until we hear that it has been rehomed. Whenever possible we will let you know where the dog has gone via the Happy Endings page. If you have a dog that you think would make a good agility or flyball dog, you can add it to the page direct by using the online entry form here. Dogs must have a photo to be listed. All we ask is that you let us know when the dog has been rehomed as there are many more dogs waiting to be listed.

This is a free service to private individuals who cannot cope with their dogs any more for whatever reason and for rescue organisations. Please note that while this is a free service, rescue organisations may ask for a standard donation to continue their work.

OBI
History:
No fault of Obi’s he has come back to us. He could stay here but finds being with his litter sister stressful. Obi was living with a family with children and an older dog. He was brought back due to family break up and rented housing. The foster mum he is with now days says he is a gem at hers. She has an older dog of her own and several teenagers coming and going! She said she thought he would be great also with an autistic child as he is very emphatic.
Description:
Obi is a long haired tri-colour ( black/white/tan) ISDS registered Border Collie. He is very active and loves to play jumping and other tricks asked if him. He is very loving and liked cuddles. He is crate trained but might prefer to sleep close to his humans. Obi weighs about 20 kg. He is a good boy but does pull a little on the lead which we are working on. He is okay in a car but would bark at a bus or lorry if they were very close alongside. He does hate the vets! We are not sure why otherwise he is very friendly and loves everyone. He looks for direction with good focus and would thrive in a one dog home or with an older dog to emulate.
Rehoming Criteria:
Obi needs an experienced home where he is occupied and cuddled! We would require a home check and regular updates on his progress. Likes to see cats but not lived with any. He is very special to us and we need to know he is happy where he is. We would always have him back.

ERIC
History:
Eric was adopted at four months old and unfortunately, through no fault of his own due to a change of circumstances for his owners, was returned to the rescue at 10 months. He is currently being fostered in a multi-dog household and is thriving.
Description:
Eric is a tri colour Collie X. He is a slender build (16 kilos), and medium height. He is active and affectionate with everybody, including children. He has the potential too make a great agility/flyball dog being bright and quick to learn. Although still young, his attention and response is good, making him a prime candidate for training.
Rehoming Criteria:
Eric is a fun and loving dog and well trained for a 10 month old, and thus he would only require affection from and new family and and active lifestyle. Home check and adoption fee applies.

LEIA
History:
We got Leia from a Collie Rescue Centre when she was five months old. She is now three years old and we have absolutely adored having her. However, we have a baby due in April and a 20 month old toddler who has just figured out that he can run, and is forever trying to chase Leia. She very much enjoys her own space and gets quite anxious when she sees our little boy heading in her direction, and runs away - which of course is a game for our son and so it's a vicious circle. We feel a little anxious with her around young children as she again can be a bit full on and knock them over inadvertently.
Description:
Leia is a medium sized (20kg) Collie x Pointer. She is a very beautiful girl, with the look of a Collie and the colouring of a Pointer. We have done training with her and she is very easy to teach ticks to as she is extremely food orientated. We also took her to a beginner agility course a few months back and she absolutely loved it and was a natural, which is why we are going down this avenue of rehoming. She seemed to excel in the class, and as she is so willing to please and get a treat, she picked it up very quickly. She is also a very quick runner and very agile but with good recall. At home in the evenings she loves a cuddle but is also happy finding her own snug spot. She is very good in the car and at night. She can be very excitable and enjoys attention, so is very full on with new people and can be a bit much for people who aren't used to dogs.
Rehoming Criteria:
We would love her to go to an active family who have plenty of time and attention for her that we unfortunatly can't give her. Leia is fine with our cat so this wouldnt be an issue, but not with smaller animals as she will chase them. She would suit a family with no young children, ideally with only teens. We would love to be able to get the odd update on how she is progressing as it is with a heavy heart that we are rehoming her.

SKYE
History:
We have had Skye since he was a puppy. We got him from a farm near the Scottish borders and so he is from a working line. We need to rehome him as he really needs someone who can spend more time with him giving him the attention that he needs and working on the quirks of his personality shall we say.
Description:
Skye is quite a big dog for a Collie. I think he would love agility as he has boundless energy and I think would be very easily trained by the right person. 95% of the time Skye is a good dog. The issue we have is that he is very picky about whom he likes - especially strangers. Some people he likes and will crave attention from them - others he takes a dislike to and will show aggression or back away from them. The is the same with other dogs and unfortunately is very unpredictable. He is not one for 'cuddles' but, from the right person loves to be stroked. He is not keen at all on most of the children he meets.
Rehoming Criteria:
Skye needs a home with a couple and no young children. Ideally, I would suggest he should go to the home of someone with teenage+ children.

SIMON
History:
Simon was a stray to an Irish dog pound.
Description:
Simon is a lively, busy dog and loves to learn new things. He is very bright and we think agility or other kind of doggy activity would suit him well.

All potential adopters are subject to home check. To make an appointment to view contact Simon, contact Heathlands Animal Sanctuary.

ECHO
History:
Echo was found as an abandoned farm dog in Ireland and went into Ainmhithe Animal Rescue. He came over to the UK toward the end of 2018 and went into what we hoped would be his forever home. Unfortunately however this did not work out due to a relationship breakup. He has been on foster in a family home on Hayling Island since December 2018 and he is living happily with a female adult collie who is around the same age as him.
Description:
Echo is a medium size, adult male black and white long haired collie. He is very friendly with people but lacks basic training so to a large extent is a blank canvas. He is a lively, happy boy who we believe would be ideal to do agility or flyball.
Rehoming Criteria:
Epic can not be homed with cats, and would suit an experienced collie home who can train him properly. His ideal home would be one where there is already a female collie who he can play with and learn from. We would prefer not to home him with another adult male or in a home where there are children under 12.

MOLLY
History:
Molly is being rehomed as she was struggling in her previous home due to not fault of her own.
Description:
She is black with a curly coat (with minimal shedding) She weighs 7kgs and is either a very large 'Small' or a very small 'Medium' She has good basic training and has been in foster with me for a couple of weeks so is now used to other dogs of all shapes and sizes. She has a very good recall and is willing to learn. She has been checked out by Marisa Pinnock (Chiropractor) who says she is good to go for agility. She certainly has the drive chasing squirrels!
Rehoming Criteria:
I would like to see her go to an agility home as I think she will really enjoy the work and mental stimulation.

X
Another successful rehoming. Not agility but this quite difficult little bitch has landed on her paws with an experienced and thoughtful owner. She has issues with close handling so needed an owner who would wait for her to agree to an approach - not common as most owners who want to cuddle and fondle their dog but her new owner just gets Peggy and they are having a wonderful time together. He works from home as a book illustrator and goes for long walks in the hills - not agility but active!
