About Merlyn

A Crossbreed
1 to 2 Years


Merlyn is an excitable, young Spaniel Cross with a friendly character. He's an extremely clever boy with lots of enthusiasm, so is on the lookout for the perfect home that can provide him with plenty of outlets to express his energy. Merlyn enjoys to interaction but prefers joining you on an adventure, playing a game with his toys or participating in fun training rather than lots of fuss and cuddles.

Type of home needed

Merlyn would hugely benefit from lots of activities to keep his busy mind stimulated and on-going training - Dog School classes would be ideal. He LOVES to be out and about, so taking him to explore in a variety of places will make him very happy. However, Merlyn is a VERY strong boy. He will need active owners who are steady on their feet and able to manage his strength. Merlyn would love to be the centre of your attention, so is looking for a family who have lots of time to dedicate to him. He can live with a well-suited canine chum but cannot live with cats or birds.

More about me

This charismatic chap is great fun to be around and will be the perfect companion for owners who have a keen interest in reward-based training.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Merlyn, 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.
