About Jay

German Shepherd Dog (GSD / Alsatian)
2 to 5 Years


Jay is a stunning 18 month old German Shepherd. He will need calm, patient owners with either GSD or large breed experience. Jay needs time to get to know you and build up a relationship with you, he is worried by new people to start with but given the time he comes round and soon becomes good friends and is an affectionate and great friend.

Type of home needed

Jay has been under the care of our training team and he will need new owners who can continue his ongoing training needs in his new home with our support. He has been working very hard on his training and has proved to be a very clever boy! He has alot of potential and will thrive in a quiet RURAL home with patient owners who can be around for a majority of the day to start and build up the time left.

More about me

Jay MUST be the only pet in the home, he will need some ongoing support with his socialising. He is looking for an adult only home with limited visitors *Multiple visits will be required* Jay has alot of potential and will be a wonderful boy once he settles into his new home. Please call to book an appointment to meet Jay as he is not on view.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Jay, 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.
