About Eric

Shih Tzu
1 to 2 Years


Meet Eric! He is a young 17 month old boy looking for his forever home! Eric is quite a nervous boy when first meeting new people so his new family would have to visit him a few times before he goes home. Once he gets to know you he turns into a real cuddle monster who just loves getting all your attention. Eric loves interacting with other dogs and loves playing with all his favourite toys!

Type of home needed

Eric would like an active home as he is still a young lad who likes to go on lots of walks. He will also need a secure garden of his own to play around in. Eric will need an adult only home with no young visiting children as he is worried of new people. He would benefit from a quieter home so he can relax in his own space. Eric likes to spend times with his doggy friends so could live with another dog in the home pending a successful meet at the centre. He has also lived with a cat previously so could have a feline friend in his new home!

More about me

If you have the time to build up a bond with this little handsome fella please visit the centre between 12&5 weekdays and 10&4 weekends.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Eric, 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.
