About Boris

Spaniel: English Springer
2 to 5 Years


Boris is a complex 4 year old Springer Spaniel. Boris has not had the best start to life which can leave him worried in everyday situations, especially during the night. Due to his behavioural issues, Boris will need an adult only home, ideally with only one or two people. Boris loves his walks and will need a lot of off lead exercise or he may become bored and get up to mischief! Boris likes to socialise with other dogs out and about and could live with another dog in the home, however, it would need to be the right dog for him in the right set up, so he is able to have his own space when needed.

Type of home needed

Potential adopters will need to have experience with dogs with behavioural problems and live within a maximum of a 45 minute drive from the Centre to ensure they are fully supported in his new potential home by our Training Team. He would need to be rehomed in a quiet rural area away from the loud noises that a built-up area can bring. Boris is a firm favourite here at the Centre and is so deserving of his forever home.

More about me

PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in Boris, please call the centre to speak to one of our training team to make sure he will be suitable for you before travelling down to the centre. You will need to have a home visit prior to confirmation of booking to ensure the setup is correct for him.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Boris, who is based at Bridgend. 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.
