Likes

Sweet little Cody can find new people and new situations a little scary. When he knows you though he is excitable, bouncy and happy to see you; With people he knows he likes a fuss. Here at the centre he has quite a few doggie friends who he enjoys walking with, he prefers smaller dogs. When he is familiar with his environment his tail will not stop wagging! He is happiest when he is playing with toys, he absolutely loves the squeaky variety. He is happy with car travel to get to nice quiet walks and he knows basic training.

Type of home needed

Cody is a sensitive chap and a bit of a worrier. He will need an adult only home without too many visitors to get used to. He would benefit from quiet walks, where he doesn't have to worry too much about strangers approaching him. Previous experience of nervous dogs would be ideal and adopters must be prepared to visit Cody several times to build a bond with him. With any new dog in a new home, time left alone will need to be built up gradually. Cody is looking to be the only dog in the home to have all of the attention, but would love small doggie friends to go for walks with.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Cody, who is based at Ilfracombe. 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.
