I'm looking for a new home...

About Reggie

2 to 5 Years


Reggie is a sweet but sensitive boy who is looking for a special home who have experience of nervous dogs and resource guarding. Please tell us about your experience of these on your application. Reggie has found meeting new people quite worrying while he has been with us so is looking for a quiet home without too many visitors. He has also shown resource guarding in his previous home so must therefore live in an adult only home without any visiting children. Reggie would like to meet his family here a few times to build a relationship before going home.

Type of home needed

4-year-old Reggie is a good boy in the car and travels nicely so could go on adventures a bit further afield. He would love his own private and secure garden in his new home to potter about in during the day and to practice his recall training in. Reggie can get quite upset when left alone and has been destructive before so would like someone at home most of the day to begin with to slowly work on teaching him that it isn't so scary to be left alone! Reggie will need to be the only pet in his new home but can have calm walking buddies when out and about.

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.
