About Brodie

West Highland White Terrier
1 to 2 Years


Brodie has had a very sheltered life - he's been used for breeding and has seen very little of the outside world. He's looking for a patient owner who won't rush him into any situations he is unfamiliar with. Brodie isn't used to walking on a lead or being outside much, so needs someone who will help him discover the world slowly. He's very young still, only 18 months old, and thankfully has a long time to focus on his future.

Type of home needed

Brodie gets along with other dogs but hasn't met very many, so quiet and calm interactions only for now. He should never be forced into meeting another dog as this can leave him with a negative association and won't do him any favours. He isn't used to children so any in the home will need to be over 14, so that they will understand the need for patience. As Brodie hasn't lived in a regular home, it's possible he will need some house training help.

More about me

Brodie loves to play with his water and food bowls and tip them up! Ideally, give him non slip bowls to prevent yourself from spending the rest of your days with a mop in your hand!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Brodie, who is based at Merseyside. 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.
