About Charlie

Terrier Cross
2 to 5 Years


Charlie is a little guy with a big personality. He loves a fuss from those he knows best, but he does get worried by new people so needs to be introduced to them slowly. Charlie has been enjoying lots of new training at the centre and has taken to it all so well. He loves his treats and toys so this really help! He gets on well with other dogs out on walks but does prefer all the human interaction to himself so will therefore need to go to a home with no other pets.

Type of home needed

Charlie is looking for a quieter adult home, with minimal visitors and no visiting children so he can settle in and find his little feet. He is a lively bouncy lad who will keep new owners on their toes, so needs an active home. If you are interested in this little chap call the centre to chat to our behaviourist before travelling.

More about me

Charlie is a dog that will need multiple visits so he can get to know his new owner slowly at his own pace, so therefore potential owners will need to live local to the centre to ease the transition into a new home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Charlie, who is based at Darlington. 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.
