About Alby

1 to 2 Years


Alby is a young boy with a lot of love to give. He has a sensitive soul and a few worries about the world, but also has an endearing, cheeky character that is hard not to love. He likes to look to his human pals for guidance when he's unsure and is always keen to show you his affection. Alby is enthusiastic about most things in life, including: food, playing with toys, going for walks and spending time with people.

Type of home needed

Alby can be a mischievous boy, so will need owners who are keen to continue some reward-based training with him once he's at home. He certainly has a spring in his step as he can jump fences that are over 7ft. For this reason, Alby will need to be kept on a long-line if he's in the garden. He needs to build up his social skills around other dogs, but he is only young and still learning. He could share his home with another calm, confident dog who could act as a good role model and he can share his home with children over the age of 12. Alby won't be suitable to live with any cats or small furry pets. Leaving him alone at home must be built up very gradually.

More about me

Alby will make a wonderful addition to a family who can really make him feel involved in all aspects of their life and dedicate lots of time to him!

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Alby, 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.
