About Buster

8 and over


Buster is the proud owner of the wiggliest bum in the centre! He is a glorious boy who's behind goes into overdrive when he sees his favourite people coming. He will usually run and get his blanket for us, and stands with it in his mouth like a puppy! He's 10 years old but Buster is very active and loves to be outside, and is used to having a few walks a day. He loves his toys and likes to play with his cares, but only drops what he's got if you have another one to trade!

Type of home needed

Buster doesn't know what to do with other dogs and seems more comfortable with the girls than with the other chaps. He can be possessive over toys at times so is probably best as the only dog at home anyway. Buster was initially easily aroused when he first arrived and was grabbing tree branches on his walks, but he's settled in beautifully now, and no longer does this. We wouldn't advise any game of that nature to be encouraged once he's home, as his arousal could escalate quickly. He is house trained and he can live with children aged around 13. He's a not a fan of squirrels!

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Merseyside Rehoming Centre in Liverpool.

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.

Start your online application now.

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.
