About Bobby

Terrier: Border
8 and over


Bobby is such a sweetheart and is only with us due to his owners ill health. He is looking for a retirement home where he can put his paws up and relax. He is looking for a home with few stairs as he doesn't manage them well. He needs a hands off home that can help him into the car or onto the sofa without lifting him as he still likes to be independent.

Type of home needed

Bobby is good with other dogs and could live with a companion but not with cats. He would be happy to be left for a few hours after he has settled initially. His eyesight isn't the best so it would be good to let him adjust to his new home before being left. It is also important for him to have a secure garden and not be let off lead when in public due to this. He can live with children over the age of 14 years that can give him space when he needs it.

More about me

Please don't let Bobby's age put you off! Even at thirteen years old he will bring joy and a new lease of life to his home. He loves fuss and affection once he has a bond with you and still plays like a puppy at times. He is currently living in a foster home where he is enjoying the luxury of home life. Come visit us to find out more.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Bobby, 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), 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.
