About Ben

Staffordshire Bull Terrier (SBT)
8 and over


Ben is a friendly, nine-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He loves nothing more than human company and so is looking for a Special Someone who wants to do everything with their doggy companion at their side. This playful chap is always keen for you to throw a tennis ball for him and he loves to chew down on a robust toy when relaxing.

Type of home needed

Ben is a superstar when walking on his lead, responsive with his re-call and enjoys his walks in quieter areas. Although he may be able to have calm walking buddies, he would like to be the only dog at home. He can however, live with cats and children over the age of 12. It is essential that he has a garden of his own where he can run about and play to his heart's content. As Ben highly values the time he spends with people, he can struggle when left alone. Ideally, he will live in a multiple-person household, with owners who are always around to keep him company.

More about me

Ultimately, Ben would make for a very loyal and loving companion to owners who can dedicate lots of time to him and really make him feel like part of the family.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Ben, 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 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.
