About Hocus

6 to 12 Months


We're sure you'll agree that Hocus is an absolutely gorgeous young man, and he has his little bags packed, ready to head off to his forever home and begin his new life. Hocus came to us as a stray, so we have very little info on his history. We've found him to be quite a worried lad and ideally he'd like to live with a calm and confident canine friend that can show him the ropes of family life. Another dog is not essential as long as the environment is right and his owners can work on socialising him around good role models.

Type of home needed

Hocus is looking for a home with teenagers over 16 years old due to his worried disposition. His new owners will need to be close to the centre so that we can make his transition into his new home as easy as possible for him. We don't think he is used to being left on his own so will need someone with the time and patience to show him that there's nothing to worry about. Hocus loves his food, so training is fun and easy to do. He'll be an excellent companion with the right training and input.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Hocus, who is based at Leeds. 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.
