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.

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.

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.

PEGGY
History:
Peggy was born on site at the Rescue Centre 16 months ago. She was adopted, but unfortunately this did not work out. Peggy’s owners stated that she had inexplicably snapped on a couple of occasions, so she was brought into the centre to be assessed by our external behaviourist. Peggy’s owners made the difficult yet sensible decision to re-home her.
Description:
Peggy is a typical working stock type collie who is highly driven but has a slightly nervous temperament. She is very active and needs to be kept busy mentally and physically in order to prevent frustration. Activities such as agility or fly-ball would most likely be perfect for her in order to keep her frustration levels down. This gorgeous girl requires clear, consistent boundaries with positive reinforcement. Peggy likes her space and is looking for an owner who can recognise when she feels uncomfortable with close contact. Although Peggy can display a little on lead frustration towards some new dogs, she mixes well with most dogs. She has not yet shared her home with other dogs though. Peggy will herd sheep and hens and chases cats and squirrels. Peggy is house trained and her recall is fairly good but this will need continued training as she is easily distracted by movement. Like most working type collies, Peggy has a high chase instinct and will chase moving cars. This is improving, but she requires an owner who can continue her training. Peggy can get bored easily when left alone and has chewed beds when her owners have been out. Peggy is a lovely girl and can be very affectionate but she will display warning signs when she is not comfortable with close interaction.
Rehoming Criteria:
We are looking for an owner who understands the needs of working type collies and is able to provide Peggy with clear, consistent training and socialising using reward based techniques. She is not to be re-homed with children. Peggy requires an active home, with someone who can provide her with the mental and physical stimulation she requires. Her new adopters must understand that she can only tolerate a certain amount of close contact and they need to be able to recognise her body language when she is not comfortable and give her the space she requires

Arthur has been rehomed. It is not an agility home but in a lovely rural setting with three other collies, one near his own age as a buddy.
