About Baloo

A Crossbreed
5 to 7 Years


Meet big Baloo! Baloo is a 5 year old crossbreed ready to find his forever home! He loves his food and will take any treat he can get so this will be great for his ongoing traning. Baloo really enjoys his walks, especially going to new places and having lots of time to sniff around and explore, because he gets so excited on these walks Baloo can be quite strong on lead so will need owners who can manage this. He loves to play with his toys- his favourite is playing chase!

Type of home needed

Baloo struggles to be left on his own and as he loves affection likes to be with someone all the time, for this reason new owners would need to be home most of the day and can build his leaving hours very gradually at his own pace. Baloo would like his new home to have a secure garden with high fences so he can have lots of playtime. Baloo is dog friendly and enjoys going for walks with some of his doggy friends however we feel he would be best as the only dog in the home. Baloo can live with children aged 14 years and over as he is a big lad who can be shy with new people. The home would need to be non open plan and away from main roads. Baloo cannot live with cats as he has a tendancy to chase them.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Baloo, 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!
