About Archie

2 to 5 Years


A gentle giant with tonnes of character - taking the time to get to know Archie will be truly worth the while. He does have a sensitive side, so it may take several meetings before he reveals all his wonderful ways to you, but you can be certain from the offset that Archie is a big boy with an even bigger heart. As well as his adoration for spending time with his favourite people, Archie also enjoys indulging in tasty treats (great for his training), going for walks with his canine chums and relaxing on his duvet with a long-lasting chew.

Type of home needed

Archie has made huge progress since his arrival in our care - with guidance from his carers and doggy pals, his self-confidence is growing day by day. He's hoping to find understanding owners who can continue his reward-based training, while allowing him to take each step at his own pace. While Archie would benefit from having a buddy to walk with out and about, he cannot share his house with any other pets. His perfect home would be somewhere quiet and peaceful, situated away from the busy roadsides and with a generous-sized garden to do zoomies in! Archie can live with teenagers over the age of 16 and will need minimal visitors.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Archie, 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.
