Rehoming by appointment

Our rehoming centres are open by appointment only. We're still rehoming, but we're doing things a little differently.

Biggles is an energetic 2-year-old with tonnes of character. He's a friendly boy but often finds it hard to contain his enthusiasm and may forget his manners when meeting you for the first time. However, his project handler has been teaching him calmer greetings, as well as new skills that he is making great progress with. This super smart Lurcher thrives when he's learning and would love a family who could dedicate lots of their time to his training. Once he knows you well, Biggles will be a playful, fun and affectionate companion.

Type of home needed

While Biggles' clever brain is one of the things that makes him such a joy to be around, it is also one of the reasons that he struggles with over-arousal and frustration. He'll need plenty of outlets to express his energy in the form of food-enrichment, engaging walks and on-going behavioural support. Due to a history of using his mouth when overwhelmed, Biggles must live in an adult-only home, and any visitors will need to be aged at least 16-years-old. Due to his high chase drive, he must be walked on his muzzle and he cannot live with cats, caged birds or other small furry pets. He enjoys meeting other dogs but his exuberant playstyle isn't always appreciated by others. His adopters should help him choose appropriate play-friends and he may be able to live with another well-suited dog in his new home. Quieter walking areas would be ideal initially, while he settles into his routine and it is essential that he has a garden of his own. An active family, who could offer Biggles a consistent routine would be ideal.

More about me

It will take a slow introduction to the home environment and plenty of time to settle in, before Biggles will show off all of his wonderful ways. He's hopeful to find understanding adopters who have patience, and who are willing to receive guidance from our Training Team.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Shoreham Rehoming Centre in Sussex.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
