Covid-19 update: our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing, but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with measures in place to keep staff and adopters safe. Find out more about how national Covid-19 restrictions are affecting our rehoming procedures and other activity.

Our rehoming centres aren’t open for public browsing but we’re still rehoming and taking in dogs, with new processes in place to keep staff, visitors and adopters safe.

For dogs we know will thrive straight away in their new home, we’re matching them with their new homes virtually and delivering them contact-free. Current restrictions mean we can only facilitate adoptions local to our centres and not across Countries or anywhere there are travel restrictions. We’re not able to make appointments for dogs to meet their family before going home, but we can register interest to arrange appointments when restrictions ease.

We’re currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of interest, with some dogs getting several hundred applications. Please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

About Nickel

6 to 12 Months


To apply to rehome Nickel, please click on the 'Come and Meet Me' button below. Applications will close when a suitable match has been found. PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID RESTRICTIONS WE ARE ONLY ABLE TO CONSIDER APPLICATIONS WITHIN A 1 HOUR DRIVE FROM OUR CENTRE (WR11 7RT). Nickel does everything at 100mph. He is only young and has not yet experienced much of the world around him, which brings with it a combination of intrigue and some uncertainty. Nickel is an intelligent chap with lots of potential to make a fantastic companion; He will need to be given plenty of exercise both physically and mentally in order to stay out of mischief in his new home.

Type of home needed

Nickel's family will benefit from some level of breed knowledge or experience, and will need to be able to provide a high level of activity for this energetic boy. Although Nickel has lived in a home before, he does struggle with his housetraining and may require some patience in this area. At present, Nickel can be left for a couple of hours at a time if given something to keep him occupied; This should be built-up gradually in his new home in a positive way.

More about me

Children in Nickel's home will need to be of secondary school age or older due to his bouncy disposition and tendency to forget his own size. He may be able to share his home with a playful and tolerant canine companion, although his home will need to be free of cats and other small furry pets. Lots of time and patience will need to be invested into Nickel's ongoing training, with areas including focus work, basic obedience and settle work.


In these unprecedented circumstances, we're doing everything we can to continue our vital work caring for thousands of stray and abandoned dogs. If you'd like to help, please make a donation. Your support means so much, now more than ever.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Nickel, who is based at Evesham (Worcestershire). Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. If you think you could be a good match give us a call on the number below

Our rehoming process is a bit different at the moment! We’re now matching dogs with their new families virtually and delivering dogs to their new homes, with social distancing measures in place to help keep staff and adopters safe. For dogs who need more time to get to know their new family, you can come and meet them at our rehoming centres by appointment. More info about how our new rehoming process works below.

When you rehome a dog, we’ll give you your welcome bag, which includes a new collar and lead, and our dog care handbook with microchip and insurance details. Plus, to help your new addition settle in we’ll give you a 2kg bag of Wainwright’s dry dog food, courtesy of the Pets at Home VIP Club, unless they have been fed on a different food for dietary or veterinary reasons.
