I'm looking for a new home...

About Ziggy

1 to 2 Years


Ziggy is brilliant at scent work and will fit in perfectly into a working home where he will always have something to do and due to this, Ziggy is looking for a working-type home. He is a worried boy looking for an experienced home happy to continue his confidence building training. Ziggy is an incredibly clever boy who needs his energy channelled in constructive ways. Ziggy will need to meet his new family multiple times at the centre before he will be ready to go home.

Type of home needed

One-year-old Ziggy must have an adult only home with a maximum of two people and no visiting children. Ziggy will need to be the only pet in his new home. He has struggled to settle and shown separation anxiety in previous homes. Ziggy will thrive in a working springer experienced home that have access to a good size garden and to quiet areas for walks. Please tell us about your experience on your application and please note Ziggy is not suitable for first time owners.

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.
