About Maxi

Alaskan Malamute
5 to 7 Years


Meet Maxi, a super sweet 6 year old Alaskan Malamute who is looking for a special home. She loves nothing more than being outside, sniffing around her and exploring but after all that she will curl up into her nice warm cosy bed. Maxi is a nervous girl who takes a while to warm up to new people and is wary of men, but it's really rewarding getting to know her cheeky side! She loves having a run around and a play with other canine friends and regularly meets up with her friends here at the centre. Maxi really deserves a home where she can be spoilt rotten.

Type of home needed

Maxi would like her new home to be a super safe space for her to relax in, so this means a female only home with minimal visitors and a predictable routine. To help her gain confidence she would like a secure garden to potter about in. Any children in the home must be 14 years of age and respect her space to ensure she is not overwhelmed. She could potentially share her home with both dogs and cats due to her friendly nature with other animals. Maxi needs to build a bond with her family members before going home so will require multiple meetings here at the centre between 12-5 weekdays and 10-4 on weekends.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Maxi, who is based at Manchester. 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.
