About Roger

2 to 5 Years


Roger is a friendly and lively Greyhound who is always excited to see you! He enjoys a quick sprint around off lead, however when he is walking on his lead he plods along nicely. He is happy for dogs to join him on walks. He absolutely loves a treat or two and he likes to stretch out on a nice comfy bed. The common misconception is that they need lots of exercise. However, it is quite the opposite! Greyhounds love to run and burn off their energy but they can only sustain for a short amount of time and then need a good nap.

Type of home needed

We suspect that Roger is an ex-racing Greyhound therefore adopters will need to be patient and understanding while he settles into a home environment, introducing him to the sights, sounds and smells of a home in a fun and rewarding way. He could live with children as young as twelve and possibly another dog in the home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Roger, 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),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.
