About Barkley

2 to 5 Years


Barkley is a strikingly handsome boy who is a real favourite at the centre with all his carers. He walks like a dream on a lead and enjoy's spending time with his loved ones. Barkley's carer Roberta has done lots of work with him including teaching him that being in a car can be exciting and not a scary place, and that the Vet's is not always a scary place. He is doing so well, and coming on in leaps and bounds (literally).

Type of home needed

Barkley is looking for a nice quiet home where he can settle in at his own pace.Barkley does need to be the only pet in his new home but he will walk nicely with other dogs, and loves playing with his lady friends. He is a real gentleman. He can be wary of new people, more especially men, and will need to meet prospective owners a few times.If you are looking for a loyal couch potato then Barkley is the boy for you.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Barkley, 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 £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.
