About Billy

Terrier: Yorkshire
5 to 7 Years


Billy is a five-year-old Yorkshire Terrier with a sensitive nature. It'll take him some time to build up a bond, but if you give him the time he needs, he'll relish your attention and enjoy sharing snuggles with you on the sofa. When Billy's not relaxing in your company, this active chap loves nothing more than to explore on fun, varied walks.

Type of home needed

Billy's family should have a car so that they can drive him to quiet walking areas, without having to road walk him past any busy traffic. He would really enjoy exploring the woods or the downs, where he can avoid bumping into lots of other dogs. He will need to be the only pet in a household with minimal visitors, where any teenagers are aged 16 and over. In order to build up some on-going focus work, Billy will need a garden of his own to practice in.

More about me

Please note, Billy is a lady's man and can be wary of the older generation - he will need to live with at least one female in the household. He will make for a loving and loyal companion to patient owners who can provide him with some extra training and support.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Billy, 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.
