I'm looking for a new home...

About Finn

2 to 5 Years


Fantastic Finn is a lovely big lad who unfortunately isn't loving kennel life but does love his time with his canine carers being fussed over and going out exploring. In his previous home Finn enjoyed playing with his toys and we are sure once he is settled with his new family he is sure to show off his fun-loving side to them! Finn loves his home comforts and loves a snooze on a comfy sofa so a family who are looking for company in the evenings while they watch TV in exchange for a snuggly spot next to them on the sofa is exactly what Finn is looking for!

Type of home needed

4-year-old Finn has come from a loving home through no fault of his own. He does have separation anxiety so must have someone at home to keep him company during the day as he gets very distressed when left alone. He will need his own private garden to potter about in during the day and will need to be kept onlead and muzzled in public. He can walk with calm dogs of a similar size but will need to be the only pet in the home. Finn can live with teens over 14 years old.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Basildon Rehoming Centre in Essex.

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.
