About Tom

German Shepherd Dog (GSD / Alsatian)
5 to 7 Years


Tom is big cuddly bear once he gets to know you. He is a rather large boy and will need an owner with previous experience of owning large breeds before that are able to manage him out on walks. He will need to be kept on lead as he needs careful introductions to people.

Type of home needed

Tom is looking for an adult only home with people aged 18 years and over. He previously has had some handling issues when receiving medical care but has come on leaps and bounds in our centre and is ready to continue this at home. He is looking to be the only pet in the home but with him around you won't need anyone else. He can be left for a couple of hours at a time and is housetrained. He will need a garden with a 5ft fence.

More about me

Tom will be best living in a quiet home where he has space to go and put his paws up as he does like to be independent. He is very clever and can open doors so his new owners will need to be careful with this. He would benefit from meeting his new owners a few times before going home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Tom, 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.
