Violet is a shy little lady who is looking for a kind and understanding home that will let her settle in her own time. She is is worried by many things and really needs someone to build her confidence and show her that the world has lots of nice things to offer. Her loving personality shines through when she knows you and she will make a wonderful companion.

Type of home needed

Violet would prefer to have another dog in the home to show her the ropes. She is gentle and loving towards her canine companions and would do well with a doggy friend. She cannot live with cats. As she is shy it would be best for her to live in a quiet home with children over the age of 14 years who can give her some space if she needs it. As Violet was previously found as a stray she will need a secure garden with a 6ft fence to keep her safe.

More about me

She needs to have someone around for most of the day to help Violet settle and help her with any training needs as she doesn't cope well left alone. A hands off home that can offer her positive reward based training is a must. Having previous experience of owning a dog is also essential. Come to our centre to find out more.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Violet, 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 £150 (£140 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees),for puppies its £150 adoption fee plus a £45 Dog School fee 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 can 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.
