About Benny

8 and over


Beautiful, brindle Benny is always happy to greet new people. He is an active chap aged 8 and would enjoy a home with owners who have the time to spend with him as he loves one on one attention. Benny loves playing with his toys and this can keep him occupied. He's a bright lurcher who picks things up quickly and likes learning.

Type of home needed

Benny is able to live with teens aged 16 plus and he'd also like to be the only pet in his new home. Whilst out and about it would be best to walk Benny in quieter areas away from other dogs. Benny is learning to walk nicely on the lead and travels well in the car, so it is an option to drive him to more remote locations when out on adventures. It is essential that Benny has his own enclosed garden, with high fencing; he's a bouncy boy and will need to burn off some extra steam from time to time.

More about me

Benny can become excitable when meeting people and can jump up occasionally so new owners will need to continue his training and practice calm introductions. Benny has a special friend who would love to chat to you so please call ahead of your visit so that we can make sure they are available.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Benny, 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.
