Blu is a lovely boy who came to stay with us due to his owners ill health. Blu doesn't cope well with some aspects of kennel life and this is one of the main reasons he is still with us. Blu is still so young, he enjoys training and has lots of potential to learn.

Type of home needed

Blu is learning good manners and continuing this in his new home will be even more effective. For this reason we need Blu to go to a home with people aged 16 or over that have experience of owning dogs before. Currently he has to be the only dog in the home as he is struggling to make friends in this environment but this may change once he is settled into his forever home.

More about me

Blu loves playing and going for walks so we would love Blu to have and active owner that is around most of the day to offer him the mental and physical stimulation he needs. He is a very loving dog once he gets to know you so a few meets at the centre are required so he can have the best start in his new home with the support of our TBA.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Blu, 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.
