About Marley

Lab Cross
5 to 7 Years


What a beautiful boy Marley is but this sensitive guy, is very shy and does find a lot of things a bit unnerving. He is going to need very calm, kind and patient owners to help him settle into his new home and come out of his shell.

Type of home needed

Marley is very strong so does need to learn to walk nicely on a lead. He LOVES his toys and this is definitely the way to this shy guy's heart. He may prefer to live with another nice confident female dog to show him the ropes. He is looking for a home with no children (older teens over 16 years should be ok). Once he settles he will hopefully blossom into a playful, loving dog.But it will take time.

More about me

If you are interested in this gentle but timid guy, then please have a chat to a traier about how to help Marley adjust to a new life. You will need to visit with him a few times to let him get to know you, but it will be worth it.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Marley, who is based at Darlington. 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.
