About Nelly

2 to 5 Years


Two-year-old Nelly is a fun lively girl who loves her walks. She is very clever and enjoys training and games. Nelly can be worried meeting new people and will benefit from a home in a quiet area with a family that have experience with rescue dogs. She has been polite meeting dogs when out on her walks however would like to be the only pet in her new home.

Type of home needed

Nelly must have an adult only home with minimal visitors and no visiting children. She would love access to a private secure garden to zoom about in. Nelly struggles with separation anxiety and will need company throughout the day in her new home. She will need to meet her new family multiple times at the centre before she will be ready to go 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.
