Buster is a rather reserved boy who is looking for a quiet home where he can settle in at his own pace and not be forced to make friends with everyone he meets. He will need a home with no children (or visiting children) and will prefer to be an only dog in his new home. He is housetrained and ok to leave for a little while so should fit nicely into a quieter home with one or two new owners.

Type of home needed

If you are interested in this little chap please contact the centre first to speak to a member of the training team, and they can tell you all about Buster and the type of home that would suit him best. He will need new owners to come to the centre to visit him a few times so that he can get to know them, and new owners will need to be quite hands off with him. Once he has made a friend with you then he should make a nice companion in his home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Buster, 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 £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.
