About Elkie

2 to 5 Years


Elkie is a gorgeous girl who just loves human affection and gives really good cuddles. She is like a teddy bear with her thick coat, which will require lots of grooming, but she really enjoys a good brush. She is a young dog who will need some basic training and someone to teach her some manners and calm behaviour as she can be over the top.

Type of home needed

Elkie is looking for a home with children over the age of 16 years old who can be involved with her training. She could live with another dog but we would do a few introductions at the centre as she can be a bit full on. She cannot live with cats. She will need a home with a secure garden and a 5ft fence to give her somewhere to burn off some energy and practice her training.

More about me

Elkie can be left for a few hours at a time but we would prefer someone to be around to help her settle and build up the time she is left alone.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Elkie, who is based at Glasgow. 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.
