About Tommy

A Crossbreed
2 to 5 Years


Tommy is a large four year old German Shepherd-Rottweiler cross that is looking for a very specific forever home. He's a big strong boy who sometimes doesnt realise his strength or size. He likes getting outside for nice quiet undisturbed walks, where he can explore what is going on around him without any distraction. He will need a secure garden.

Type of home needed

Tommy is a complex chap who is looking for confident and experienced owners who are willing to put in plenty of time to help him adjust to a life outside of kennels. Due to his size and strength, Tommy will need to be the only pet in an adult only home. He will need a secure outside kennel area where the transition into home life can be done gradually. Tommy needs a lot of patience and structure in his life, he's a lovely boy with a great character and deserves the love of a committed owner.

More about me

I'm a big bouncy boy who can get a little carried away from time to time. I like it when my routines are kept the same and I know what I'm supposed to do. I can get a little excited when my routines change and because of my size I sometimes forget how strong I am.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Tommy, 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 £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.
