About Charlie

A Crossbreed
5 to 7 Years


Charlie is a 5 year old Crossbreed. Charlie is a big handsome boy who adores meeting new people. Charlie loves going for long walks in the countryside or sniffing about and investigating in the woods. His favourite game is chasing after a football and loves it when you play with him! espcially if he wins!

Type of home needed

Charlie is a large dog and he would require an owner who is farmiliar with large breeds and can manage his strength when he is out walking. He is looking for a home where he would be the only pet, with a secure garden where he can relax and enjoy himself. Charlie can live with children of around 10 years old, he is house-trained and happy being left alone at home for a few hours, he also loves the car and makes a great travelling companion.

More about me

Charlie would love his new owners to love a rural setting just as much as he does. Charlie enjoys attention and loves nothing more than cuddling up to you, he will do anything for a bellly rub, although he is big in size he is very soft and loving in the house when around his favourite people.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Charlie, 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 £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), 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 will 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.
