We’ve set up new processes which include social distancing measures to help keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

We’re now matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can now meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment and this now applies to all of our rehoming centres in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Thomas

I'm looking for a new home...

About Thomas

Centre:
Breed:
Age:
5 to 7 Years
Sex:
Male

Likes

Thomas is an extremely handsome boy with the most AMAZING ears! He is a shy boy who can find new faces and experiences unsettling. He loves his carers who have built a bond with him, and they see his cheeky, lively, playful side. He loves his toys and dashing about like a tornado. Thomas would love a sizeable secure garden so he has plenty of space to throw his toys about.He's an anxious boy when he sees other dogs, so his doggy socialisation will be ongoing in his new home.

Type of home needed

Thomas is looking for a quieter home(with minimal visitors and no children) and calm owners who can help him to settle in and find his feet. When out for his adventures Thomas will need to be on lead. He needs a massive confidence boost, so new owners need to help him blossom without putting him into situations which he may find too challenging. Once settled he's a lively boy who will require an active lifestyle. Thomas prefers to have company and time left alone needs to be built up gradually. At the moment he will need to be the only dog in a home. If you have time and are looking to help a shy dog blossom then please ask to speak to the training team at the centre about our beautiful Thomas. This sensitive boy will be a real sweetheart once you are his friend.

More about me

If you feel that you may be just the pal for Thomas then please contact the centre to have a chat with the training staff. Thomas is in a quieter part of the centre. Prospective owners will need to visit a few times to meet with Thomas to get to know him.To apply to rehome me please click on the 'Come and Meet Me' button below. Applications will close when I have found a suitable match.

 

During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs. This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Thomas, who is based at Darlington. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. If you think you could be a good match give us a call on the number below

Our rehoming process is a bit different at the moment! We’re now matching dogs with their new families virtually and delivering dogs to their new homes, with social distancing measures in place to help keep staff and adopters safe. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can come and meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. We can’t register interest for dogs who aren’t available for rehoming. More info about how our new rehoming process works below.

When you rehome a dog, we’ll give you your welcome bag, which includes a new collar and lead, and our dog care handbook with microchip and insurance details. Plus, to help your new addition settle in we’ll give you a 2kg bag of Wainwright’s dry dog food, courtesy of the Pets at Home VIP Club, unless they have been fed on a different food for dietary or veterinary reasons.
