I'm looking for a new home...

About Sleepy

5 to 7 Years


Sleepy is a gentle and sensitive soul who has retired from racing and would like nothing more than a home to call his own. He is a laid-back lad who likes to relax after his walks on a comfy duvet and will play with his toys once he's gained confidence. Sleepy has had a tough start and takes time to get to know new people. He loves his food so this will help with future training.

Type of home needed

Sleepy is looking for a calm home with adults only that have the time and patience to build his confidence. He will need to build a relationship with his new owners before he goes home, so multiple meets at the centre may be required. Sleepy enjoys meeting dogs of a similar size on his walks but would prefer to be the only dog in the home. He can potentially be left a few hours once he has settled in. Due to his high chase drive, Sleepy will not live with cats or small furries and will need access to his own private garden.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Sleepy, who is based at Canterbury. 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.
