About Lexi

8 and over


Lexi is a real sweetheart, with a lovely nature, she is a 12 years old but is still active for her age and enjoys going out for her walks. The way to Lexi's heart is with cuddles and affection, though she is partial to her toys and loves to carry them around with her.

Type of home needed

Lexi is happy to be left for a few hours, but does love to be around her carers. She is fully housetrained and could live with children aged 8 and over. She may possibly live with another dog, but would have to be a very calm dog that wasn't in her face. Lexi can be a little unsure of new situations and can make her a little anxious at times, so she would benefit from being introduced to new things slowly.

More about me

Lexi is currently spending some time in a loving foster home.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Darlington Rehoming Centre in County Durham.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

Start your online application now.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
