About Badger

5 to 7 Years


Badger is a sweet boy who can have a sensitive side and needs some TLC. He is a lover of food with no boundaries so 'lurcher-proofing' kitchens is a must!

Type of home needed

Badger can be vocal when he sees dogs out on walks so will prefer to have his strolls in quieter areas. He can be worried by new dogs and will need someone up for some gradual socialisation in his new home. He may live with children over the age of 11 but not a multiple child household as he prefers the quiet lifestyle. He will need all basic training including housetraining and building up his leaving hours. Badger will be a gem once settled. He is playful and affectionate once he knows you.

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.
