Stevie is a long term resident here but, despite a few quirks, we know he could easily make someone the best companion ever! He has a really silly nature, and loves nothing more than playing with his squeaky toys.He's a clever boy, and really enjoys the training that we are doing with him, he's learned a lot of new things. He walks nicely on the lead & is happy to make friends with new dogs but can be a little wary of men that he doesn't know so likes to be slowly introduced to them.

Type of home needed

Stevie can be quite excitable when he meets new people and other dogs, because of this he will need to be the only pet in an adult-only home, where he will have plenty of attention & love. He will benefit from a home with experienced owners & someone as fun-loving as he is who will want to carry on with his training. He does have a medical condition which doesn't require any medication but means that he needs to have the amount and type of exercise that he does kept to a minimum so that he doesn't get too hot. But as a typical Greyhound, he's more than happy to spend most of his day in bed.

More about me

Hi I'm Stevie. My 2 legged pals here at the centre just love me to bits, and have had the pleasure of my company for quite some time! But now it is time for me to venture out and spread some love to the outside world. I do need some help and guidance along the way, but in the right home I will be a great addition who will make you laugh every day.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Stevie, who is based at Shrewsbury. 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.
