About Clarence

A Crossbreed
2 to 5 Years


Beautiful Clarence with his lion's mane of hair is a clever, charming boy. Found as a stray, we know little of his history but he can be shy around strangers, although once he trusts you he enjoys cuddles & fuss. Clarence gets confidence from walking with other dogs so he loves having canine buddies to share a stroll with. He enjoys playing with toys and likes a game of fetch. He's learning that indoors can be fun & has been spending time in our bungalow getting used to the sights and sounds of a household. He is a very sensitive boy, especially to noises and will need a quiet environment as well as a dedicated special-someone to help him settle in.

Type of home needed

Clarence is looking for a quiet adult only home, who will give him time to settle in. He'd like to be the only dog in the home so he can have your undivided attention but he'd like pals for confidence when out & about, so family or friends with dogs would be ideal. Clarence will need quiet walks, not busy streets etc. Past experience with nervous dogs is desirable. You should be prepared to visit the Centre several times so that Clarence knows you before you take him home and ideally live within an hour of the Centre so that our training team can provide ongoing support to help Clarence settle.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Clarence, 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 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.
