About Alessia

Belgian Shepherd Dog: Malinois (BSD)
2 to 5 Years


This gorgeous girl loves nothing more than to be in the company of her family. Once she gets to know you, she will be your best friend forever! She loves her toys, particularly squeaky ones and tennis balls. Playing fetch with her is a fantastic way to build the bond that she so loves to have. Another quick way to her heart is with food! Alessia really enjoys her walks and if she comes across any water she will be straight in there, playing! When she has settled into her new forever home and she feels she has a strong bond with her people, this sweet angel quite likes some fuss and will even jump up for a hug! Having learnt some basic tricks like 'sit', 'paw' and 'down', Alessia is eager to learn more. She is a very clever lass and she sees learning new tricks as her hobbyif it means she is having to think and will get a tasty treat for her troubles!

Type of home needed

The bubbly, energetic soul that Alessia is means that she wants to live with people who are very active. Whilst she continues working on her confidence around other dogs, she wants to live somewhere where there aren't too many dogs around. Owning her own garden would put Alessia on cloud nine because it will mean she is be able to go wild with her toys, followed by a nap.

More about me

This stunning lady is an absolute joy to be around. She wants her family to all be adults and wishes to be the only pet in the home. For Alessia to really settle in and get to know her people she would ask that there aren't any visitors to start with. Once settled, she will be happy to be left for up to 2 hours. Could this ray of sunshine be the one to turn your house into a home?

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Alessia, who is based at London (Harefield). 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.
