I'm looking for a new home...

About Gunner

8 and over


I am currently looking for my new family. To apply to rehome me please click on the 'Rehoming me starts here' button below. Applications will close when I have found a suitable match. Please note if you rent your property, you must be able to provide written permission from your landlord to keep a dog. We will not be able to reserve any dog until we have received this. Gunner will need to meet his new family multiple times at the centre before he will be ready to go home. If you are shortlisted for this dog please be aware a meet will be arranged at the centre within 48 hours.

Type of home needed

Gunner is an older boy who finds life in the kennels quite stressful. He loves having people around him but can also be quite independent and doesn't like to be overhandled. He is looking for an adult only home where his new family will be able to read if he wants a fuss or just wants to be left alone, to do his own thing.

More about me

8-year-old Gunner would like to have access to his own secure garden to potter around and catch some rays in. He suffers from reoccurring ear infections so has ongoing medical needs and there will be additional costs for owners in the future. Gunner is undergoing training to help with handling around his ears and our training team will be on hand to go over this with new adopters. Gunner is okay meeting dogs when out on walks but would like to be the only dog in the home.

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.

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.
