About Tipp

Lab Cross
8 and over


Tipp is a nine-year-old Labrador Cross Collie. He's a sociable boy who loves the company of people and has been described by those who know him as a "true gent with the politest of manners". He has a lot of love to give, enjoys snuggling up next to his favourite people and will make for a wonderful companion to his new family.

Type of home needed

He is friendly when meeting other dogs out on his walks and could potentially live with a well-suited canine chum in his new home, but he cannot live with cats, small furry pets or birds. He can share his home with children over the age of 10. Tipp needs to live in a home with nearby access to walking areas without having to travel in the car. He is still working on building up some confidence around car travel and will need owners who can help him continue this.

More about me

Tipp is currently living in a temporary Foster Home but cannot wait to find a place to call 'Forever'. If you are interested in meeting him, please call our centre in advance of your visit.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Tipp, 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.
