About Maisie

8 and over


Maisie is a bit unsure with new people and in new situations, but makes friends and is very loving after a while. She's a smart girl who demonstrates quite a few commands. She loves to play with her toys and is lively and up for walks even though she is older. She lacks doggy social skills so there is some work to do, and she may never be a really social doggy dog. She prefers quieter environments so that she can settle in at her own pace.

Type of home needed

Maisy needs an adult only home with experienced owners who can help her adapt to her new life. She will need to be the only pet in her new home. She needs a secure environment and still quite a bit of exercise. She will be such a loyal and loving girl if new owners are dedicated to helping her find her feet in a new home. She is housetrained and once settled should be able to be left for a little while. This girl will be such a lovely dog in her new home, it will be worth a little work.

More about me

She is currently in a foster home having a great time, if you would like some more information on this girl, please contact our Home from Home Team!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Maisie, who is based at Darlington. 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.
