About Brandy

Dachshund: Min Long Hr
5 to 7 Years


Dynamite comes in small packages and Brandy certainly lives up to the stereotype. He is a fiesty lad who enjoys his home comforts.

Type of home needed

Five-year-old Brandy would suit an experienced home that has rescue dogs before. His new owner will need to give him time and space to form a bond as once he gets to know you he will make a loyal companion. Brandy deserves to find a committed home due to having an unsettled time so far. He must live with in a single adult only home with no visiting children. Brandy cannot live with cats.

More about me

Brandy is strictly looking for a home with a single owner who he can build up his trust with. He needs to be the only pet and is ok to be left for short periods. His new owner would ideally live close to the centre to build up a relationship over time.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Brandy, who is based at Basildon. 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.
