About Scooby

A Crossbreed
5 to 7 Years


Scooby is a sweet, six-year-old Yorkie Cross Chihuahua with a sensitive soul. Scooby has his worries about the world, so is hoping to find patient, understanding owners who can give him some support and allow him to take each day as it comes. It may take a few visits to get to know Scooby but gaining his friendship will be truly rewarding. Once he knows you well, he'll love to hop up onto your lap and be close to you.

Type of home needed

Scooby is seeking a quiet lifestyle, living in an adult-only household with no more than 2 people and without any visiting children or too many visitors in general. While he is happy to have feline-friends, he'll need to be the only dog at home. Leaving him alone at home should be built up very gradually as he is not so keen on being by himself! Scooby won't be suitable to live in a block of flats as he is very noise sensitive and his own garden is essential. He finds it overwhelming when exploring unfamiliar environments, so a garden will help him enjoy some time outdoors while slowly building in confidence. When he is ready to go out for walks, these areas must also be quiet.

More about me

If you think you could show a shy little guy that the world isn't such a scary place after all, then Scooby would love to hear from you.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Scooby, who is based at Shoreham. 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 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.
