About Archie

Terrier: Cairn
5 to 7 Years


Archie is a very affectionate young man who loves fuss and attention from his human friends. He is a clever chap who is looking for owners who preferably have Terrier experience and can provide him with plenty of mental stimulation as well as exercise throughout the day.

Type of home needed

Archie is an adorable young man who could potentially live with another dog, after successful mixing here at the centre. He has previously lived with a cat and could possibly do so again. However, due to his sensitive nature, we would recommend that Archie lives in an Adult only home. He loves to be in the company of his humans but would like his own 'quiet area' where he can take himself, should he feel the need to. Archie will need a good-size, secure garden where he can explore and play safely off-lead.

More about me

Archie is a very handsome, five-year-old Cairn Terrier who's looking for his special forever home. He likes to meet people and make new friends but can be a little shy when meeting new people for the first time. However, as long as you take things slow and move at Archie's pace, he soon comes around, and you'll have yourself a new BFF.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Archie, who is based at Salisbury. 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.
