I'm looking for a new home...

About Kong

Centre:
Breed:
Akita
Age:
5 to 7 Years
Sex:
Male

Likes

Kong is a stunning 6 year old Akita who loves exploring his surrounding. He will be great fun to take on long walks in woods. Kong can be worried by new people and dogs so would prefer to be walked in quiet areas where he can relax and explore. He is eager to learn new things with the help of a tasty treat or two and enjoys a fuss when he had built a bond.

Type of home needed

Kong will need a calm and patient adult only home that can continue his behaviour training. He will need new owners that can walk him in quiet areas and manage him on the lead. Kong will need to be the only dog in the home as he finds new dogs worrying. Owners will receive support from the behaviour team to help settle Kong into his new home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Kong, 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 £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), 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 will 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.
