Likes

Joey is a 3 year old JRT. He is an energetic boy who has a cheeky character and is full of fun. He can be a little unsure when he first meets new people but can soon make friends. Joey prefers a quiet environment and is looking for an adult only home where he will be the only pet in the house.

Type of home needed

Joey is looking for experienced owners have had Terriers before and can keep up with his energy levels. Joey needs his own garden where he can spend time off his lead playing with his toys or relaxing. Joey can be worried and uncomfortable with formal handling and does need time to build a bond in order to trust you. He is not a lap dog and does need his own space at home.

More about me

Joey is house trained and can be left on his own for a short period of time throughout the day. He loves to go in the car on new adventures where he can explore new sights and smells. He enjoys his home comforts and will snuggle up in his own bed after a long day of being out and about. Joey will need someone who can visit the centre several times to build a bond and a friendship with him.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Joey, who is based at West Calder (Edinburgh). 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.
