Likes

Barkley is a strikingly handsome boy. He walks like a dream on a lead and enjoy's spending time with his loved ones. Barkley takes a while to trust new people and is generally an independent dog but he does enjoy attention once he has a bond with you.

Type of home needed

Barkley is looking for a nice quiet home where he can settle in at his own pace. He does need to be the only pet in his new home but he will walk nicely with other dogs, and plays with his lady friends. He can be wary of new people, particularly men, and will need to meet prospective owners a few times to build a relationship before going home. Barkley needs a adult only home with people over the age of 18 years old as he needs space when he has treats.

More about me

Barkley prefers to have someone around for most of the day. Once he is settled this may be built up gradually. He will need to be kept on a lead and muzzled due to his breed having a high prey drive. A secure garden with a 6ft fence is a must as he can be reactive when he sees new dogs.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Barkley, who is based at Glasgow. 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.
