About Bentley

Staffordshire Cross (SBT)
2 to 5 Years


This scrumptious beast is Bentley, a 2 year old Dalmatian bull cross. He is so much fun to be with, but the poor lad hasn't had any training and doesn't know what to do with himself. He's very affectionate, but tends to give out his love at about 80mph! Bentley is toy mad and happiest when running around off lead chasing them about.

Type of home needed

Bentley needs training from scratch as he's really just a big puppy. He's large and excitable and tends to grab at his lead when he's walking as he doesn't know what to do with all his energy. Staff have begun working on this with him, and help will always be ongoing once he's been adopted. Luckily, Bentley is very food orientated so this will make training a lot easier! Because of these current behaviours, we feel it better that any children in the home should be over 16.

More about me

Bentley would need to be the only dog in the home for now, whilst he learns a little doggy etiquette and restraint!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Bentley, 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.
