About Cleo

German Shepherd Dog (GSD / Alsatian)
2 to 5 Years


Cleo is a beautiful girl who has had a traumatic start in life and due to this is extremely worried and anxious especially around people and in certain environments. For this reason she needs an quiet adult only home with minimal visitors.Cleo struggles around other dogs and can get very agitated so owners will need to walk her in quieter areas.

Type of home needed

Due to Cleo's anxiety, she needs to live in a rural home with a secure area that she can run and play in as she cannot cope with all the day to day noises and situations that arise in a town environment and can get very anxious and defensive. New owners must be local enough to do multiple visits to the centre to build up a bond with her.She's a very scared girl at heart and just needs someone with lots of time and patience to help her settle.

More about me

Once she knows and trusts you,she is very sweet and loves to play - in fact she would play ball all day if she could! - she's cheeky and has oodles of energy! Cleo is housetrained and time left alone will need to be built up gradually. If you could offer this smashing girl a home, please get in touch with the centre.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Cleo, who is based at Kenilworth. 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), 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 will 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.
