About Kai

Jack Russell Terrier (JRT)
5 to 7 Years


What a cheeky chappie Kai is. Although small he has a mighty personality. Although he doesn't love everyone immediately, once he does know you he is lots of fun and affectionate. He needs to lose a few kilos but once he has he will be quite a lively, high energy little terrier. He does seem to be quite a clean little dog in his kennel, so hopefully will be housetrained in his new home.

Type of home needed

Kai will suit an experienced,terrier savvy home. He does not like to share his treasured possessions with people or dogs, and so is looking for an adult only home. He is social with other dogs but would prefer to be the only dog in his new home though he can have doggy walking pals. This little dog has a super personality, and will make a fantastic dog for the right owners. Anyone interested in Kai will need to chat to the training team before visiting with him. New owners will have Dogs Trust support to help Kai transition to his new home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Kai, 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 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.
