About Sizzles

A Crossbreed
8 and over


Sizzles is a handsome 10-year-old crossbreed who is ready to start his new life in an active, fun home. Sizzles lives for his toys, he will have lots of fun chasing tennis balls in your garden. He is also partial to a tasty treat which is useful for continuing his training. He can be unsure of new people so prefers not to be put into environments where he will have to meet lots of new people.

Type of home needed

Sizzles likes calm & predictable environments so an adult only home, with no visiting children and without a lot of visitors is essential. A garden so you can run around with him and play with toys is also a must. Sizzles is worried by traffic so needs a home where he won't have to walk on a road. He can also be worried by dogs but is happy keeping himself to himself so he would like to walk in areas where he won't be bombarded with off-lead dogs. Sizzles would like to be the only pet in the home so he can have all the love, toys and food for himself. A home within an hours drive to our rehoming centre would be preferable.

More about me

Sizzles is a smashing lad who people fall in love with quickly. He has training programmes in place to help him with his fears of traffic and new people. Potential owners will need to be active enough to carry out the training and willing to work with the centre's training and behaviour team to ensure Sizzles has a happy, safe rest of his life. Please call the centre ahead of your visit so that we can make sure his special friend is available to introduce you.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Sizzles, who is based at Shoreham. 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.
