Likes

Dexter is a 2 year old Staffie cross Spaniel, he is a lovely boy, full of fun but he can be easily over whelmed by new situations so will need his new owners to be able to take it slow and build up a relationship to help him grow in confidence. He enjoys playing with his toys and yummy treats once he's settled, once your good friends he enjoys a gentle fuss.

Type of home needed

Dexter would suit a quieter home who can give him time to settle in and adjust to his new environment. He would thrive with active owners who can help him channel his energy into training and play time, he loves his toys! Dexter has some great basic training but will need continued training in the home to help his confidence grow. Once settled in, with time built up slowly, Dexter could be left for a few hours.

More about me

Dexter is currently working on his dog skills as he can be rude and over excited for some, therefore it would be down to the specific home as to whether he could live with another dog. He could live with sensible older teenagers who can aid in his training needs. Dexter is a real sweetheart with alot of potential, he is great fun and has bags of character! To enquire about rehoming Dexter please email [email protected] or call to discuss suitability, Multiple visits are required.

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.
