About Elvis

5 to 7 Years


Elvis is a 5 year old hound, but he is more than a hound dog, he's a fun and goofy boy who'll amaze you with how clever he is! Once Elvis knows you, he loves to show off his tricks and will lean in for a good neck scratch. He likes to keep busy by learning new things and playing with his toy box full of much-loved squeaky teddies! What Elvis loves more than anything else is using his nose to explore on his walks where he can sniff to his hearts content. When he's not too busy sniffing, he likes to say hello to his canine friends here at the centre. Elvis will keep you on your toes and never fail to make you laugh!

Type of home needed

Elvis is looking for adult owners that live in a rural location with plenty of quiet walking areas nearby. He loves to go on long walks and is strong on the lead so will need active owners that can keep up! A private, secure garden is a must as he enjoys a good run around - access to private land would be an added bonus. Elvis has previously lived in a home, so should pick up house training quickly and once settled could likely be left alone for a couple of hours. He could potentially live with a like-minded dog but would not be suited to a busy home with lots of visitors and cannot live with cats. Elvis will take time to get to know you but with your commitment to multiple meets and help from our behaviour team, his fun, affectionate personality will shine through. He will need trips out to his new home with our behaviour team to help him settle in, so potential adopters must live within a 45 minute drive of the rehoming centre.

More about me

If Elvis sounds like your perfect match, please get in contact to express an interest. Please note that 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. 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.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Canterbury Rehoming Centre in Kent.

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.

Start your online application now.

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.
