About Spike

Terrier Cross
2 to 5 Years


Spike is a 3 year old Terrier cross, he is a very sweet boy but needs really patient owners who are happy to give him time to settle in at his own pace, he is a worried little man who needs time and slow handling. He loves to play with his toys and is even learning fetch, he will be a great fun companion once he settles back in to home life.

Type of home needed

Spike is looking for a quiet home with calm owners who are happy to take things slow and get to know him. Spike would like new owners who are around for a majority of the day and can build up any time left. Spike has some good basic manners but will need ongoing training in his new home, he is a quick learner and loves treats!

More about me

Spike could potentially live with children aged 14 years and over who will respect his space and give him time. He would like to be the only pet in the home but have doggy friends on walks. Multiple visits will be required for Spike to build a relationship with you.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Spike, who is based at Newbury. 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.
