About Duke

2 to 5 Years


Duke is a sweet lad who has been described by his carers as 'bright as a button'. He has his sensitivities about the world and struggles with unfamiliarity, so is hopeful to find patient owners who can provide him with extra support and continue his training. The other side of Duke's character is an active, fun-loving boy who plays like a big puppy and enjoys a game with his toys. Although he's an independent lad, once you've built up a strong bond with him, he'll relish your company and always greet you with an excitable waggy-tail.

Type of home needed

Duke will need to be the only pet, in an adult-only household with no visiting children. His dream home would be somewhere relaxing, with quiet walking areas nearby and a garden of his own. Duke has learnt to wear his muzzle when out and about and he'll need to continue doing so. Centre staff will provide ongoing training once in his home to help him settle and adjust to his new surroundings, so he is looking to live within a 90 mins drive of the centre. His potential owners must be willing to make multiple visits get to know him due to his insecurities with meeting strangers.

More about me

Duke has tonnes of potential to make a wonderful companion in the right home. Please call our centre in advance of your visit so that we can make sure his special friend is available to chat to you.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Duke, 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.
