About Benji

Lab Cross
2 to 5 Years


Benji is a sensitive soul who needs lots of time and space to help him settle into a new home. He is shy of new people so will need lots of positive fun and interaction to help build his confidence. He loves nothing more than playing with his toys especially soft or squeaky ones. He just needs a little bit of support from new owners to help him feel safe. He is unsure on how to interact with other dogs, so would prefer to walk in low dog populated area so he can have time to relax and explore.

Type of home needed

Benji is looking for owners who have had high energy dogs before and preferably experience of nervous dogs too. He needs a very secure private garden and a home in a rural/semi rural area. Our behaviourist will give you advice on how to help Benji cope with his new home. He needs to be the only pet in a quiet home with very few visitors.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Benji, who is based at London (Harefield). 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.
