I'm looking for a new home...

About Axel

5 to 7 Years


Axel is an 8-year-old German Shepherd. He is still a very active boy despite his age and loves to go on long walks around the woods. Once he gets to know you, Axel loves to play with you and will happily have a game of ragger - he loves to show off his strength and has mastered the skill of swapping his toys with you for another one. Axel loves his food which has been very useful when teaching him new tricks. He is a clever boy and loves to keep his mind busy learning new things. Axel is also muzzle trained which enables him to enjoy off site walks in new places safely. After his walks he likes nothing more than a snooze on the sofa.

Type of home needed

Axel is looking for an active family home and can live with children over the age of 16. He would like a consistent environment with minimal visitors so that he can settle at his own pace. Axel will need to be walked in low dog populated areas as dogs worry him. He will need owners who are on board with his muzzle training and understand the freedom it provides him environmentally. Axel would like his own private garden to run and play in and will need to be the only pet in the home, so that he can have all the attention to himself.

More about me

If Axel sounds like your perfect match, please get in contact to express an interest. Please note if you rent your property, you must be able to provide written permission from your landlord to keep a dog to complete the rehome process. Due to expected high levels of interest you will only hear back from us if we are able to proceed with your application. We will conduct a rehoming interview with successful applicants and home visit via video. Access to emails and video technology will be essential for this process.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Canterbury Rehoming Centre in Kent.

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.

Start your online application now.

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.
