About Rubble

American Bulldog
1 to 2 Years


Rubble was initially quite a nervous lad but he's a beautifully excitable boy who seems to find joy in everything, but often shows it by barging into things! He's just adorable and we don't think it will be long before he finds himself a new family. He is worried when in his kennel but is a totally different dog out of it, with his tail constantly wagging and that great big smile!

Type of home needed

Rubble hasn't been socialised with other dogs and becomes very excited, so we'd suggest he be the only dog in the home for now, but that he should have pals to go walkies with. He hasn't been given any training, and some basic manners wouldn't go amiss! He isn't fully housetrained either, so there's a little work to do there, but he has potential as he prefers to toilet on grass. Rubble needs a home with just adults, and to be gradually introduced to new people and places.

More about me

If you are interested in rehoming him, please call us on 0151 480 0660 first, to discuss suitability. He's going to need lots of exercise, as well as plenty to do to keep him stimulated, so we're looking for a family that won't leave him alone for more than an hour or two.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Rubble, 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 £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.
