About Guru

Great Dane
2 to 5 Years


Guru is a 5-year-old Great Dane with a gentle, yet sensitive character. He can be a little unsure when meeting new people but give him the time he needs to build a bond and you'll have a friend for life! Guru loves his toys and has a puppy-like nature when playing - he likes to gallop around with a soft teddy & then have lots of fun pulling it apart!

Type of home needed

Guru could share his home with another dog of a similar nature but would be just as happy as the only pet. He's seeking a quiet & peaceful lifestyle, in an adult-only home without visiting children. A lazy boy in the house, Guru enjoys short potters throughout the day and then a nice long snooze once back at home. It's essential that he has his own garden space so that he can stretch his legs from time to time.

More about me

Ultimately, this gentle giant is hopeful to find loving and patient owners who can give him the reassurance that he needs when facing his worries. He's a big baby at heart, but that just makes him all the more endearing! Guru is currently in a Foster Home, so please call the centre in advance of your visit if you're wishing to know more about him.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Guru, who is based at Shoreham. 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.
