I'm looking for a new home...

About Maxie

5 to 7 Years


Maxie is a handsome wee chap who is full of fun and energy for his age. He is looking for a home with people who have owned rescue dogs before and can help him in situations that he may feel anxious. A hands off home would be best but he is very affectionate once he builds a bond with you.

Type of home needed

Maxie is looking for a home with children over the age of 16 years old. He can be shy with some dogs but gets on well with others so he would like to meet any potential doggy friends at the centre to ensure they get on. He cannot live with cats. He prefers to have someone around for most of the day but is happy to be left for an hour or so. Maxie would love his own garden to play in which should have a 4ft fence.

More about me

Maxie can be worried by some handling and can be worried by some new people approaching him so he will need to be kept on lead when in public. A quiet area to walk would be best so he can enjoy a relaxing life.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Maxie, who is based at Glasgow. 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.
