Covid-19 update April 2021: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public for general browsing. We’re still rehoming virtually and we’re here to help if you can no longer care for your dog. Please don’t visit, or travel to our centres unless you have already been matched with a dog, or are leaving donations at one of our contact-free drop off points.

Merlin (formerly Jacob) from Darlington

Known to Darlington Dog's Trust staff as Baby Jacob this handsom lad, Merlin, will soon be having his first birthday. After a very poor start in life he is now a very fit, healthy, active and happy boy who lives for making friends and going for long walks every day. Even the cat can't get enough of him!
