Lucy is an energetic 2 year old neutered standard dachshund (short haired). She can be very worried by strangers and has had a sheltered life so far, so will need understanding owners and a home without too many visitors and quiet areas to walk. She really benefits from having another dog around as this helps with her confidence around people and new places, so ideally would like a home where she has a friend to play with. She loves toys and food, which will help with her further training. Lucy loves a fuss from her favourite canine carers!
Type of home needed
Lucy is looking for a quiet adult home with no more than 2 people and minimal visitors. She would really benefit from living with a confident existing dog, although this is not essential. Lucy cannot live with cats. She will need all basic training including house training, and immediate access to a fully enclosed private garden is essential for her, as well as quiet walking locations. Her family must be committed to continuing her training under the guidance of our behaviour team, and must live within 45 minutes of the Canterbury centre as Lucy will need to meet her new family and any existing dog multiple times here at the rehoming centre to build a relationship and then for our behaviour team to bring her for home visits.
More about me
If Lucy sounds like your perfect match please get in contact to express an interest. Please note if you rent your property you must be able to provide written permission from your landlord to keep a dog to complete the rehome process. Due to expected high levels of interest you will only hear back from us if we are able to proceed with your application. Due to the current government guidelines we are unable to rehome to any families that are self-isolating. We will conduct a rehoming interview with successful applicants and home visit via video. Access to emails and video technology will be essential for this process.
During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our
rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful
staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now
able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs.
This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of
being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by
your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without
your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to
those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs
get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them
their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult
time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue
looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...
