About Lenny

2 to 5 Years


Loveable Lenny is a true gentleman. Once he knows you, he's super affectionate, loves spending time with you and enjoys a gentle massage. Lenny's new owners would need to visit him several times as he can be a little unsure at first but once he knows you he will remember you forever.

Type of home needed

Lenny is looking to lead a quiet lifestyle, in a peaceful neighbourhood where there isn't too much going on around him. He could share his home with teenagers over the age of 15. Although he'd like to be the only pet at home, Lenny LOVES to socialise with other well-suited dogs. It will be important that he has a regular walking-doggy friend who can help him with his confidence when exploring on his walks and particularly unfamiliar places. His new home should have easy access to quiet walking areas & a large secure garden is essential.

More about me

Lenny is seeking patient & laidback owners, who will support him in developing confidence and allow him to do so at his own pace. He will make an excellent forever companion to the right family. He will need quiet walking areas that he can get to without needing to walk along or across busy roads. He is also uneasy in the car, so he will need a little help with this once he is settled in.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Lenny, 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.
