About Doris

Centre:
Breed:
Greyhound
Age:
5 to 7 Years
Sex:
Female

Likes

Doris is a beautiful big girl, so handsome and with a very sweet nature. She is quite a strong girl and needs to brush up on her leadwork. Typical lurcher she is very keen on her food. She also is rather too interested in small furry things, so care is needed out and about.

Type of home needed

Doris will suit a home with people who are used to sight hounds and their traits. She has a lovely temperament and could live with children of 10 years or so. She may need to be the only animal in her new home, though with continued socialisation she may have walking buddies of similar sized dogs. Doris is housetrained, and can spend a little time by herself, though she will prefer not to be left for too long as she does love her human playmates. This beautiful lady with the wacky ears is already a favourite with the staff here, could she be the one for you?

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Doris, 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.
