I'm looking to re-home my dog, he's a two year old Border collie/spaniel cross. He's an absolutely lovely dog, and I love him to bits, but unfortunately given my set up at home, it's just not suitable for him. He's a very obedient and smart dog, but he's also very very energetic and needs large open spaces/long walks to keep him occupied.
However, I'm not entirely sure about how to go about re-homing him. I could put him in a rescue, but I have heard (and I know very little about this so I could be wrong) that if they do not find a home for him soon enough, they could put him down. Which I do not want in any case.
I could advertise on donedeal.ie etc, but you never really know who you're giving them to with websites like that.
Could anybody recommend how best to go about this? Despite giving the dog away I really do love him, so I want to make sure he gets the best home he possibly can.
I'm based in Cork if that makes any difference.
