I'm looking for a new home...

About Aussie

A Crossbreed
2 to 5 Years


Aussie is everything a staffi should be! He's excitable, fun and adores attention from his carers. He can on occassions get too excitable but enjoys channelling his energy into fun games. He loves playing with his toys and will happily play by himself. He is very foody which has been a great aid for the training he has been receiving. He can however get worried by some situations and anything he hasn't come across before.

Type of home needed

Aussie has come on leaps and bounds with his training and is now ready to find his forever home. He is going to need an adult only home with people who are around all day as he does struggle to be on his own. He just loves giving humans his attention! He would benefit from a few people living in the home rather than a single household as he can become overly attached to people. He has some walking buddies here at the centre but he can be very rough and tumble with them so will need careful socialisation continued in the home. His new owners will need to be dedicated to providing him mental enrichment during the day to keep him occupied. Experience of exuberant dogs would be ideal.

More about me

If you are interested in hearing more about this gorgeous boy then please call to have a chat to the training team before making the journey. He will require multiple meets at the centre to help with the transition of going into a home but the behaviour team will be on hand to help with this.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Aussie, 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.
