About Nikita

Lab Cross
1 to 2 Years


Nikita is a stunning lab cross who is intent on keeping those supermodel looks! She absolutely adores being brushed and will nudge you to carry on should you dare to stop! She's very friendly and enjoys being out of her kennel, exploring. Nikita has plenty energy, so would suit an active family who can keep her busy.

Type of home needed

Nikita is about 18 months old and we know little about her other than she has come from out of the country. Whilst abroad, she has ingested an infected tick that means she has the potential to carry a disease called hepatozoon. It's not transmitted to humans and her blood tests have shown that although she does not suffer from the disease, she has potential to pass it on should she have parasites. It is VITAL that her worm and flea treatments are kept up regularly, and she'll need to be the only pet in the home, but can still walk and socalise with other dogs.

More about me

Nikita needs some positive reward based training as she is worried by wearing a harness but needs this as she is so strong. She can live with children aged 14 and over.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Nikita, 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.
