I'm looking for a new home...

About Bagel

2 to 5 Years


Bagel is a gentle Lurcher with a timid nature. This adorable three-year-old can often find life a bit daunting, but through showing him love and patience he is slowly learning that the world isn't such a scary place after all. He may take some time to get to know but Bagel has come on leaps and bounds since his arrival and has begun to build up lovely bonds with our staff. He has a huge place in his heart for food, is a playful boy with his toys and adores the company of his canine chums.

Type of home needed

Bagel is looking to find understanding owners who are prepared to make multiple visits to our Rehoming Centre to form a friendship with him. He'll need a quiet, peaceful home environment without too many visitors coming or going. The youngest members of his new family should be over the age of 16 and he cannot live with any cats or other small furry pets. Bagel must however, live with another dog. Being around his kennel mates make him feel a lot more at ease, and he looks to them for support. He will need to be walked in spacious areas away from the traffic and it is essential he has a fair-sized garden.

More about me

Bagel will need some on-going, reward-based training to help him feel more confident in various aspects of life. However, we're sure that his Special Someone will find it hugely rewarding to support him as he builds in courage and watching as he blossoms.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Bagel, 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.
