About Dexter

A Crossbreed
2 to 5 Years


Dexter is a beautiful 18 month old German Shepherd cross Golden retriever, he is full of beans! everything is so much fun for Dexter, he is happy all of the time and has a great zest for life! This does make him a little forgetful of his large size at times. He is a really sweet boy who enjoys a good fuss or a good play time.

Type of home needed

Dexter is looking for an active home who are used to larger breeds. He is best suited to a quiet area where there arent to many exciting distractions. He has some good basic training but would benefit from continued training in the home as he loves to learn and is a very bright boy who really enjoys the mental enrichment too. Once settled into the home Dexter could be built up to being left for a few hours slowly.

More about me

Dexter would like to be the only dog in the home but have friends out and about. He could live with teenagers 11 years and over who have experience with larger breeds. This big beautiful boy will thrive in a home who can continue to help him learn and wont mind his bouncy antics, he is a real joy to be around. *Due to Dexters training and medical needs we ask that you call the centre first to make an appointment to meet him, he is not on view at the centre* If you are registered with us please call first, if not then please pop in and register, if you are suitable we can book you an appointment time.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Dexter, 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 £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.
