About Abby

Staffordshire Bull Terrier (SBT)
2 to 5 Years


Abby is a sweet 2-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. She is a fantastic little Staffie who is eager to greet new people when is out and about on her walks and can live with children over the age of 10. Abby is uncomfortable around other dogs and she would prefer to be the only pet at home.

Type of home needed

She came to us as a stray, so we don't know much about Abby's background before she came into the centre. She would like a new owner who has experience of dogs and a garden where she can run around, playing with her favourite squeaky toys or simply getting cuddles from her family. Abby is looking for someone who can be at home with her during the day, helping her to settle down.

More about me

Abby is a very clever dog, who is eager to please and is keen to learn new tricks especially if a tasty treat is involved! She is more than happy to travel in the car looking for new quiet and calm places to explore and investigate. Abby is a funny character who will always put a smile on your face!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Abby, who is based at West Calder. 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.
