About Lara

Staffordshire Bull Terrier (SBT)
8 and over


It is not hard to fall in love with Lara. She is a sweet brindle girl who loves fuss and attention. She's a real sweetie. She enjoys her home comforts and is tucked into bed every night by her Canine Carer. She likes walks with lots of interesting spots to sniff and likes playing with toys. She adores people and is happiest when she has company. She is a big favourite with our volunteers here at the centre, they adore taking her for walks and spending time with her.

Type of home needed

Lara is looking for a home where she can be the only pet in the home. She needs walks in quiet areas, that are not too busy with other dogs, or in wide open spaces such as fields or beaches. Lara is used to someone being at home all of the time to give her lots of cuddles. She builds a very strong bond, and will be your best friend for life! Time being left alone will need to be built up slowly. A nice secure garden would be great for her to bounce around and play with toys in. Will you share your sofa with Lara, she gives the best cuddles!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Lara, 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 £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.
