I'm looking for a new home...

About Archie

6 to 12 Months


Meet Archie, a sweet 8 month old lurcher cross looking for his forever home. Archie loves meeting new people and is a very cuddly boy who enjoys a fuss and a nice groom. He is an active lad and loves being out and about and going on new adventures. Archie is a cheeky chap who just loves to play, especially with his more boisterous doggy friends here at the centre!

Type of home needed

Archie is only a young boy so is looking for new owners who can be around most of the time to help him settle in. As he gets worried when he is left alone, his new home must be non-open plan to help him gradually separate from his human friends. Archie needs his own secure garden for plenty of off lead fun and could potentially live with another active bouncy dog who can keep up with him, pending a successful meet and greet here at the centre. As he is an excitable boy he is suitable to live with confident children aged 11 years or more who are used to boisterous large breeds. Archie is worried by the car, so car travel must be non-essential initially.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Archie, 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!
