About Alessia

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


Alessia is a sweet and loving girl once she gets to know you although this trust and introduction must be built up slowly with her. She does have a worried side and is not comfortable with strangers coming up to her. She will need experienced owners who have an understanding of her breed and temperament. Alessia is a very active dog and has been very receptive to training. She is reactive to other dogs and will need to be the only pet in the home.

Type of home needed

Alessia is looking for experienced owners with knowledge of working breeds. She needs a home with a private garden in a quiet location with access to peaceful walks. Leaving hours will need to be built up slowly and she will need to have a home with very few visitors. Our behaviourist will talk to you about Alessia's needs and how to manage them.

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.
