About Charlie

5 to 7 Years


Charlies most favourite thing in the world is a tennis ball! He would play all day long if allowed. He also enjoys splashing around in the water. He hasn't been around other dogs much and will bark if they get too close so he will need quieter walking areas to keep a safe distance.

Type of home needed

Charlie is looking for active owners who enjoy plenty of play time outdoors. He can be strong on lead so will need someone who can manage this. He will need a good sized secure garden to play in. Any kids in the home should be at least 16 yrs old. Charlie is also happy to jump into the car and get out for exciting sniffy walks!

More about me

Charlie is a lively 6 yr old Spaniel/Collie mix

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Ballymena Rehoming Centre in Northern Ireland.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
