I'm looking for a new home...

About Toby

5 to 7 Years


Toby is a very clever little man who is looking for an extra special home to enable to live his happiest life. Toby is not a fan of being handled or fussed over but enjoys affection shown differently such as through companionship, tasty snacks and he is at his best when given the opportunity to use his super smart brain! Toby has learnt a lot of cool tricks that he can use to help in his day-to-day life - he even knows how to file his own nails down on cue! Toby will need understanding owners who have experience of rescue dogs and understand dog body language well. His new family must be willing to work alongside our training team to help Toby settle into his new home.

Type of home needed

7-year-old Toby is looking for a quiet, adult only home with no visiting children, and a maximum of 2 people in the home. Toby is an active lad and will need to be kept on lead in public so must have his own private, secure garden at home to enjoy all to himself during the day. Toby would like to be the only pet in the home and would prefer not to have to meet too many dogs out and about if possible. Toby will be a rewarding rehome to a dedicated family keen to continue encouraging him to be the best dog he can be!

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Basildon Rehoming Centre in Essex.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
