About Angus

Patterdale Terrier
5 to 7 Years


Angus is a 6 year old, Patterdale Terrier. Angus is very sweet and loving with those he knows and trusts. He can be shy and nervous around people that he doesnt know and does take time to build a friendship. Angus is a total foodie and enjoys playing search and find especially if hot dogs are involved! His favourite game is chasing after his ball or running around playing with his doggy friend.

Type of home needed

Angus gets nervous when in overwhelming and busy situations so he is looking for a quiet sensible home with someone who has had adult dogs before. Angus is looking for an adult only home and can live with other quiet dogs. He would like regular exercise and a secure garden for off lead play.

More about me

Angus is house-trained, can be left alone for a few hours and travels well in the car. Angus will need potential owners to make several visits to the centre to build a bond and get to know him.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Angus, who is based at West Calder. 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.
