About Dobby

2 to 5 Years


This handsome superstar is our very lovely Dobby. He is a 3 year old lurcher cross who is guaranteed to put a smile on your face! Dobby has been with us a while now and we cant understand why, he's a real favourite here at the centre and has become a bit of a celebrity here! Dobby loves his food and will do anything for a tasty treat, he knows a few tricks and loves to use his brain and do training too. Dobby is a pleasure to walk and loves going on adventures in quiet areas where he can take in all the sights and have a really good sniff at everything. After going for an adventure Dobby loves having a fuss from his favourite people, he especially loves a good old bum scratch!

Type of home needed

Dobby is looking for a home with a private secure garden with no neighbouring dogs where he can relax and play with his favourite toys. He will need a non open plan home so he can enjoy his own space. Dobby can live with children aged 16 years and over who are comfortable around large dogs. Dobby is a bit worried by certain dogs, particularly larger males, but has been friendly towards some smaller dogs and females, he will need owners that are comfortable working on this to help build his confidence. He will need to be the only pet in the home. Because he has been uncomfortable around some dogs, Dobby will be going home on a lead and muzzle disclaimer which means he will need to be wear both of these things when out on his walks.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Manchester Rehoming Centre.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
