About Keir

Terrier Cross
2 to 5 Years


Keir is an adorable little dog. He is so shy and sensitive and yet he is a real snuggler when he knows you, and trusts you. He relies a lot on his best pal Holly and needs to be rehomed with her. He gets quite worried when he is by himself and is so much more at ease when with her.

Type of home needed

Keir is looking for a quiet home with Holly where he can settle in and learn to make friends with new owners. He does so in his own time but will always be a bit of a shy lad around strangers. He could live with over 16 year olds. These two little guys are looking for a quiet home with minimal visitors, and perhaps just one or two owners in the home. Keir and Holly will be adorable little dogs to own, and will be so much fun. They will be best as the only dogs in their new home as Keir especially can be worried by other dogs too. Have you space in your heart for these two little dogs? It will be so rewarding to watch this gorgeous boy blossom.

Prospective owners will need to speak to our trainers and visit a few times to get to know this shy pair.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Keir, 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.
