I'm looking for a new home...

About Archie

Cocker Spaniel
8 and over


Archie is a sweet natured 8 year old Cocker Spaniel; he can be generally anxious of new things and isn't too fond of overhandling so would like a sensible home that will listen to him and respect his space when uncomfortable! He is an active boy who has lots of energy to burn and would like an equally active home with breed knowledge that can help him settle and have fun!

Type of home needed

Archie needs to be the only dog in his new home, he can lead walk with dogs however he tends to be uninterested and prefers his own space. He cannot live with cats in his new home. Any children in the home will need to be aged 16 years and over as he has been uncomfortable with people previously.

More about me

Archie is a very handsome boy who will fit in perfectly if you are looking for an active dog, he is a clever boy who will enjoy using his brain (he especially likes to use his nose for games and walks)! Please head to the centre to find out more about him.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Archie, 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 £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.
