Gorgeous fuzzy haired Hamish is looking for a new family to take him on exciting adventures. He is only small but has lots of energy so will need adopters who can keep up with him. Hamish will enjoy lots of playtime in his new home. He would appreciate his family not to be to large and eveyone needs to visit before he goes home.

Type of home needed

Hamish is 4 years old and come to us as a stray. He will need a little help with his doggy skills and basic training but loves a cuddle from his human friends. Hamish must have his own garden and space to run around as well as a family who will build his leaving hours up slowly. He will make a fun companion to any new home.

More about me

Hamish needs to have an adult only home with no visiting children and would need to be the only pet for now. 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 Hamish, who is based at Basildon (Essex). 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.
