I'm looking for a new home...

About Rocky

Staffordshire Bull Terrier (SBT)
2 to 5 Years


Rocky is an energetic and excitable boy who is looking for an active home who have experience with bull breeds. He has lots of energy so will need a home with a secure private garden and a 6ft fence. It gives him somewhere to run off some energy and practice his training. Few visitors would be best as he can be wary of new people coming into his home.

Type of home needed

Rocky is a friendly boy but can get a bit frustrated and OTT so we are looking for an owner that can physically manage this and continue training using positive methods and reinforcing good behaviours. He would really benefit from being kept mentally active so having someone around most of the day would be ideal but he could be left for a few hours at a time. He can live with children of 16 years and over.

More about me

Rocky loves cuddles so his new owners should be prepared to have a big lap dog to give them lots of love and kisses but he does like his own space when eating tasty treats so having his own areas to relax would be perfect.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Rocky, 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 £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), 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 will 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.
