I'm looking for a new home...

About Gary

2 to 5 Years


Gary's one true love is food. This has helped immensely with the training that he has been receiving at the centre (alongside his clever brain) and he really enjoys learning new things. He can be a little anxious around resources, but has learnt to share with his carers, which in time will tranfer to new owners. He does have a sensitive side, with loud noises spooking him, so would prefer a quieter environment.

Type of home needed

Gary is looking for an adult only home (with no visiting children) where he is the only pet. He will need to be kept on lead for his walks, therefore is looking for a home with immediate access to a garden, which is mainly laid to lawn. Though he can't share his home with other animals, he is social on walks with them so would enjoy continuing to meet calmer dogs on walks. He is very clean in his kennel, therefore we do suspect he will still have his housetraining.

More about me

Rehoming Gary will require a few meets at the centre with a gradual transition in to the home environment, so therefore prospective owners will need to live local to the centre as he isn't overly fond of travelling.

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.
