About Otis

Terrier: Border
2 to 5 Years


Otis is a friendly Terrier cross with an inquisitive nature. He's as bright as a button and has a big place in his heart for food, so would make a fun little companion to participate with in reward-based training. This sweet two-year-old will relish your attention and enjoy spending time with you - whether that's when out on a walk or cuddling up next to you on the sofa.

Type of home needed

Always keen to explore, Otis would love to find an active family who can join him on adventures. He will need to travel in the car to his walks or avoid walking next to the busy roadsides as he finds traffic a bit daunting. Otis can live with older children over the age of 12 and could potentially live with a well-suited dog of a calm nature. His new owners will need to continue helping him to socialise with other dogs in a positive way, so that he can practice some good manners when on lead. It is essential that he has his own garden.

More about me

Otis is such a sweet boy who is bound to bring lots of joy to a loving family.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Otis, 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.
