Rehoming by appointment

Our rehoming centres are open by appointment only. We're still rehoming, but we're doing things a little differently.


I'm looking for a new home...

About Dexter

6 to 12 Months


Dexter has bags of energy, on go all the time! He has so much personality and is a real character. He enjoys being active and brings great enthusiasm to everything he does including greeting dogs and people.

Type of home needed

Dexter is looking for active owners who can keep up with his zest for life. He would like to go on lots of adventures but also keep his mind active too with plenty of mental stimulation. Owners will need to think outside the box for ways to keep him entertained. Training will need starting from scratch and somebody at home throughout the day for company. Dexter can live with kids 16 years of age and share his home with a tolerant dog who can show him the ropes. But will need to be tolerant as he can be rough and vocal when playing.

More about me

Dexter would love his new owners to have had experince with hounds so that they fully appreciate his ways.

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.

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.
