About Benji

A Crossbreed
5 to 7 Years


Meet Benji a friendly 5 year old chap, who loves people and will happily have a cuddle on the sofa with you. Benji is a clever boy and loves to learn new things; he will do anything for some tasty treats, cheesy ones are his favourite! Benji loves playing with his toys, especially if you run around with him and enjoys nothing more than a nice walk where he can sniff to his heart's content!

Type of home needed

Benji's new home must have a secure garden; he would benefit from living in a low dog populated area and not around livestock. Benji has made doggy friends in the centre, however his new family must be prepared to take things slowly, as he has had negative encounters with dogs in the past. Benji must be the only pet in the home and as he can be quite boisterous and mouthy, any children in his new home must be aged 16 years or over.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Benji, 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.
