Rehoming by appointment

Our rehoming centres are open by appointment only. We're still rehoming, but we're doing things a little differently.

About Rex

6 to 12 Months


Rex is an incredibly affectionate boy who loves his human interaction and will jump on you to recieve fusses. Although Rex was socialised by going to daycare, he is now reactive towards dogs out on walks and we have unfortunatley been unable to remix him since his return, despite our best efforts. This will need continued work, which the training team can help with, alongside building up the time he can be left.

Type of home needed

Rex is looking for a home were he is the only dog but have owners work on his social skills. He will need someone around all day for him and once he has settled into his new home build his leaving hours back up. He can live with children aged 14 and over.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Darlington Rehoming Centre in County Durham.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
