I'm looking for a new home...

About Dexter

Lab Cross
2 to 5 Years


This is handsome Dexter. An 18 month Labrador x Collie looking for a very active home to match his energy needs. He loves to be out and about on walks and absolutely adores playing with his toys! As any typical lab does, he loves food so this will really help with his on-going training as Dexter loves to learn new things. He can be a very worried boy around new people so it will take a good amount of time to get to know him, but once you become his best friend he enjoys a nice fuss.

Type of home needed

As Dexter can be worried by new things, he is looking for a calm and predictable home to settle his paws in. He would like a secure garden to run around in to his heart's content. Dexter is looking for an adult only home with no visiting children. The home will need to be non-open plan so he can have his own space when he needs it. Dexter will need to be the only dog in the home as he generally avoids dogs and likes to have his own space if he can. He has lived with a cat before so could potentially live with a feline friend in his new home!

More about me

If you are interested in Dexter please visit the centre during 12-5 weekdays and 10-4 weekends. Please note, potential adopters will need to visit Dexter multiple times here at the centre so he is comfortable with his new family before heading home.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Dexter, 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.
