Likes

Teddy is a dog who will suit people who have successfully owned the breed before (or similar). He is a cheeky chap who needs training as he can be easily excited and gets very giddy. Teddy has a huge personality and the staff all love his cheeky ways, but he can be worried by new faces and busy environments. He can socialise with some dogs here but can get over excitable and needs careful intros to dogs.

Type of home needed

Teddy is very enthusiastic, and a friendly soul when he knows you, but will require a quieter adult only home with a secure garden, and minimal visitors (no children). If you think that Teddy is the dog for you, then please contact the centre to speak to the Training and Behavioural Advisor before visiting.

More about me

New owners will need to work with the training team to help Teddy transition to his new home. He will need potential owners to visit the centre multiple times to get a bond with him, before going to his new home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Teddy, 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.
