About Benji

2 to 5 Years


Benji is a very handsome 2 year old Greyhound, he is a great fun character who loves to investigate everything. Benji loves his toys, throwing them around and chasing them is great fun, he will even let you join in the fun! he is just abit of a goofball at times!

Type of home needed

Benji would love new owners who are keen on training as he is eager to learn, especially when a tasty treat is on offer, he is proving to be a very quick learner. He can be a little nervous when meeting new people but given time comes around quickly. When he was in a foster home he settled into home life quickly and he loved all the comforts and joys of being in a home, especially a big comfy bed!

More about me

Benji would prefer an adult only home with another similar sized female dog or as an only dog where there is generally someone at home most of the time with an enclosed garden he can zoom around in, when he is not sunbathing! Benji has alot of potential to be a great companion given the time, he will never fail to make you smile.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Benji, 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.
