I'm looking for a new home...

About Merlin

1 to 2 Years


Merlin is a young boy who hasn't had the best start in life. He is looking for a committed home that can give him the time and space to settle. He will require ongoing training so having experience of owning a rescue dog would be best and previous experience with Saluki's would be ideal but not essential if you have a knowledge of their needs.

Type of home needed

Merlin is looking for a quiet home with a gentle hands off family. He can be worried by new people and some handling so he must live with children no younger than 16 years old. He really enjoys reward based training and although there is plenty of work ahead of him he is progressing well and we are confident that he will continue to improve when in his new home. It would be best for someone to be around most of the day and build up the time he is left.

More about me

He will need to be kept on lead in public due to his behaviour around some strangers. It is important that he has a secure garden with a 6ft fence to give him somewhere to potter around and have a bit of freedom. He will make a wonderful addition with the right owner who can meet his needs.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Merlin, 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.
