7-month-old AJ is a project for a new family who are experienced training complex dogs or rescues. He will eventually be an awesome boy but needs the chance for consistency, routine and most of all patience. AJ will likely not suit first time dog owners and he cannot cope with large families so can only have 3 people living in his home.

Type of home needed

AJ has come to us without as history and will need all training started from scratch using positive, reward-based techniques. He is extremely lively and stressed so someone who is comfortable managing this is essential. He must have a private, secure garden and someone who is around all day to dedicate all their time to him. AJ is currently under socialised with both people and dogs so will need further rehabilitation in this area.

More about me

AJ must have an adult only home without visiting children and as the only pet. He will need multiple visits at the centre before going home so adopters local to the centre are preferred. Please note if you rent your property, you must be able to provide written permission from your landlord to keep a dog before you visit the centre to reserve this dog.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Aj, who is based at Basildon. 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.
