About Olive

Lab Cross
5 to 7 Years


Olive is a beautiful 5-year-old Labrador Cross who loves being with people! Olive is a little bit worried about being handled initially so she will need her adopters to go at her pace and not overwhelm her, but once she has built up a bond and feels safe, she will love lots of fuss and cuddles. Olive likes to explore in areas that she knows well but will venture out to new places if she is with another calm and confident dog.

Type of home needed

Olive is looking for a home with a maximum of 3 people in the home, who are over 16 years old. Olive will need her own private and secure garden. Olive needs some ongoing training to build her confidence which our behaviour team will advise on. Her adopters will need to visit Olive at the centre multiple times before she can go home. Olive can live with another dog who is calm and confident and can give her space when she needs it.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Olive, who is based at Canterbury. 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.
