Ace is a young, endearing Lurcher with heaps of energy! This charismatic chap is great fun to be around & will keep you thoroughly entertained with his puppy-like ways. His big loves in life are: playtime with toys or other playful dogs, spending time & receiving affection from his favourite people & filling his belly with lots of tasty goodies!

Type of home needed

Ace is extremely playful, however, his playstyle isn't always appreciated by other dogs and he is yet to understand this. He is still learning his doggy-socialisation skills and this will need to be continued in the home. Ace will need to be the only pet at home but can live with confident teenagers over the age of 14. This sweet boy lacks in coordination & body awareness, so is looking for owners who are steady on their feet & a home that is predominantly carpeted throughout. It is essential that he has a garden of his own.

More about me

Ace has a few training needs, so is hopeful to find supportive owners who could help him continue with this by using positive, reward-based methods. This lovely chap really is one of a kind - a special someone who will embrace his quirks & dedicate lots of their love and time to him would be perfect. He's currently in a temporary Foster Home, so please call our centre in advance of your visit if you wish to know more about him.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Ace, who is based at Shoreham. 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.
