Rehoming by appointment

Our rehoming centres are open by appointment only. We're still rehoming, but we're doing things a little differently.


I'm looking for a new home...

About Vishnu

5 to 7 Years


Vishnu is a big, loveable boy in search of a new home. He is currently enjoying life in a foster home on our Home from Home Scheme while he waits. He loves people and is instantly friendly. Out and about he loves to explore. Vishnu can be strong on the lead at times, so his new adopters will need to take this into consideration. He enjoys quiet, rural walks; he lacks some social skills when it comes to meeting and greeting other dogs, however with gradual introductions he can make friends. Vishnu loves to learn; he is super clever and picks things up quickly. His foster carers have been working on his recall training on their land, and Vishnu is enjoying it and doing really well. In the home he is very respectful and gentle, he settles well, and he is housetrained. Once settled in the home, his foster carers have been able to leave him happily for four hours. Vishnu enjoys spending his evenings cosying down for a cuddle on the sofa or chilling in a nice comfy bed by the fire.

Type of home needed

Vishnu is looking for a loving home. He will need to be the only dog and is looking for a home without cats. Vishnu has a sweet, gentle nature and could share his home with children as young as eleven. Vishnu has been diagnosed with Epilepsy which is currently managed with medication. He will need access to quiet rural walks and although he could cope with a reasonably busy household, he would like a home in a quiet location.

More about me

Vishnu will be removed from the website when we have identified a potential match. If a suitable home isn't found, we will repost Vishnu's profile on the website.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre in Devon.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

Start your online application now.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
