About Benji

A Crossbreed
6 to 12 Months


Benji is a 10 month old crossbreed who loves to play with his toys and explore all the different smells on his walks. Benji is a cheeky chappie with people he knows but does have a sensitive side and can be shy when first meeting new people.

Type of home needed

Benji is looking for an active training minded home. He's not yet housetrained so looking for a patient owner who can help him to learn to the basics. He would like a home with more than one person with minimal leaving hours to help him build confidence when left on his own. Benji can live with children over 14 years. Benji would like to be the only dog in the home and needs a cat free home.

More about me

Benji is currently in one of our lovely foster homes and so isn't at the centre. If you're interested in offering him a forever home please contact the centre. We'd love to tell you more about him and arrange for you both to meet.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Benji, who is based at Manchester. 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.
