About Buddy

Chihuahua: Long Hr
2 to 5 Years


Buddy is a fun and lively boy who loves to interact once he has a relationship with you. He is worried around unfamiliar people and takes time to build his trust. Buddy will require an adult only home in a quieter environment, with owners who are prepared to visit him enough times to start to build up a bond. As long as you are prepared to travel enough times to meet Buddy at the centre then distance isn't an issue as Buddy travels well.

Type of home needed

Although Buddy can be sociable with dogs, he can be worried by some and will need to be the only pet in the home.

More about me

Buddy is a little super star when it comes to training and loves to learn new things. He will require time and dedication but will certainly be worth it. If you feel you could offer Buddy the home he deserves, please contact the centre to speak to the training and behaviour team as he is not on view at the centre.Buddy is a complex little lad who is looking for a commited owner. They need to be willing to continue with his training and be happy to make several visits a week to the centre for a period of time.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Buddy, 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.
