About Mike

Staffordshire Cross (SBT)
8 and over


Mike is a 10 year old Staffie mix, he enjoys human company, having the occasional chest scratch and leaning against you but he also likes his own space where he can relax in. Mikes biggest love is food! Mike is still a reasonably active chap, he enjoys gentle walks with lots of sniffing opportunities as well as brain games to keep him happy.

Type of home needed

Mike will need owners who are around for the majority of the day as he does not like being left alone, he is working with our behaviour team to help him learn to settle but this will take time. Mike can also be anxious in indoor environments to begin with, so needs a quiet home with people who are willing to help gently intergrate him into a home environment, having easy access to the garden and enrichment toys.

More about me

Mike would like to be the only pet in the home. He has a few dog friends here at centre that he walks with and he can comfortably walk past other dogs on a walk, he prefers not to meet them if he doesn't know them. Mike is looking for an adult home. Please note multiple visits will be required. To enquire about rehoming Mike please email [email protected]

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Mike, who is based at Newbury (Berkshire). 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.
