About Dash

1 to 2 Years


Dazzling Dash is a super handsome Lurcher cross who is sure to turn heads out and about. Although shy at first, he has comes out of his shell since he's been with us. In his new home he would benefit from some ongoing training to help him find his feet. He is an incredibly talented young man who is eager to please.

Type of home needed

Dash is looking for a caring home where he will have lots of company throughout the day and for you to have experiance of larger dogs. He is a wonderful character and once settled his personality is sure to shine. He enjoys the company of other similar sized dogs and should be able to live with one. Dash will need a secure, private garden where he can enjoy a zoom about when the mood strikes. He has come to us as a stray so needs a family who can help him settle in and adjust to home life.

More about me

Dash needs an adult only home as he is a bouncy boy. He cannot live with cats or small furries. If Dash sounds like the lad for you head down to the centre to find out more! Please note if you rent your property you will need to provide written permission to keep pets before we are able to reserve this dog for you.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Dash, 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.
