About Riley

2 to 5 Years


Riley is a sweet and affectionate 2 year old Greyhound, who's on the hunt for a special forever home. He loves food, walks and chilling out. One of his favourite hobbies is also playing with his toys!

Type of home needed

Riley is looking for a home with owners who are at home most of the day, to start with. Riley will need to be the only dog in the home unless you have a female black lurcher as he does seem to enjoy their company. He can live with sensible children aged 16 plus and would like his new family to help him build his confidence and take things one paw at a time. He is very worried by the car so needs training for this. Riley has met a cat here at the centre and could potentially live with a cat in his new home.

More about me

Riley is looking for a quiet home away from busy main roads with a secure garden where he can enjoy some offlead fun. He's a super sweet-natured chap, who'll soon steal your heart & be your best friend for life! He would prefer his meet and greets during the day."I am a cheeky & characterful boy with huge amounts of charisma & charm"

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Riley, 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 £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), 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 will 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.
