About Coda

Staffordshire Bull Terrier (SBT)
8 and over


Coda is such a lovely boy with a big heart. We're hoping Coda doesn't have to wait long for a loving family to find him. He loves his food and toys, and is eager to be around you once he gets to know you. He likes a bit of affection, but he probably needs to bond with someone to become more affectionate. Coda is happy to walk with calm, sociable dogs. Coda only needs a low level of exercise, and would very much appreciate food puzzle games to keep his mind stimulated. He is happy with car travel and knows a sit.

Type of home needed

Coda is looking for a loving, patient and understanding home. Coda could live with older teens in the home (14-years plus) they will need to understand that he doesn't want to be stroked all the time. He would like to be the only dog in the home, but have suitable doggie walking buddies when out and about. He would suit a quiet home environment where he is given time to relax. Potential adopters should be prepared to visit Coda a few times at the centre in order to build a bond with him. Experience of breed character would be ideal.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Coda, 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.
