I'm looking for a new home...

About Ernest

2 to 5 Years


Ernest is a handsome boy. He walks like a dream on a lead and enjoys spending time with his loved ones. Ernest takes a while to trust new people and is generally an independent dog but he does enjoy attention once he has a bond with you. He needs a patient and committed owner who will give him time to adjust.

Type of home needed

Ernest is looking for a nice quiet home where he can settle in at his own pace. He does need to be the only pet in his new home but he will walk nicely with other dogs. He can be wary of new people, particularly men, and will need to meet prospective owners a few times to build a relationship before going home. Ernest needs a adult only home with people over the age of 16 years old as he needs space when he has treats.

More about me

Ernest can be left for part of the day and loves to snuggle up on a comfy duvet. He will need to be muzzled and kept on a lead in public due to his breed having a high prey drive. A secure garden with a 6ft fence is a must so he has somewhere safe and secure to play. He will enjoy quiet places in the home to have some time to himself if possible.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Ernest, who is based at Glasgow. 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.
