About Polly

5 to 7 Years


Polly is a 7 year old Labrador, she is a real sweet heart who enjoys a good fuss! She is an active girl who loves to go out on a gentle stroll, nose to the ground and explore! She enjoys having a paddle in the water. Polly is a little stressed at the moment due to all the changes so will need understanding owners who will give her time to settle.

Type of home needed

Polly is looking for a quiet but active home, she needs her exercise to be built up slowly as she has a few pounds to loose on her waist! Her new owners will need to follow her dietary requirements. Polly will need her new owners to be around for a majority of the day and build up any time left very slowly. Polly has good basic training but will need ongoing training in the home to help her settle in and find a good routine.

More about me

Polly needs to live with another calm adult dog of a similar temperament, she enjoys having a companion to keep her company. Polly could potentially live with calm children aged 11 years and over. **There will be some ongoing medical needs with Polly which Dogs Trust will assist with** Currently in foster...

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Polly, 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.
