About Bertie

A Crossbreed
5 to 7 Years


Bertie is a 6 year old crossbreed. Bertie is a fun loving boy who loves to play, he is an expert at catch, has great control when playing football and is fantastic at finding the hidden teddy bear! Bertie enjoys going for walks especially if this involves a trip away in the car to the woods, hills or meadows.

Type of home needed

Bertie is looking for a calm and quiet, adult only home with owners who have had dogs before. Bertie can be worried by strangers and does need a gentle and slow introduction in getting to know new people. Bertie can be uncomfortable with other dogs and prefers to walk in quiet areas.

More about me

Bertie came to the centre as a stray so we are unsure of his past, Bertie can take time to trust you and once you gain his trust he wants nothing more than to be your best friend. He is a quick learner and will try his very best to please you.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Bertie, 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.
