Dogs Trust

UPDATE: Our rehoming centres are closed until further notice, however we are now able to rehome a small number of our amazing dogs. Each dog’s profile will let you know if they are looking for a new home. For the time-being, we are unable to register your interest for dogs who are not yet available for rehoming.

Hello, I'm Benny

About me

I’m a loving Lurcher with a bouncy side that I’m not afraid to hide! Toys and treats are definitely the way to my heart and I’m always happy when there’s someone to play with! One of my favourite things to do is to go down to the beach and charge about in the sand while the tide’s out. I’ve got a lot of energy and love to play games, so I love it when my human carers hide some treats from me and I get to sniff them out, I always win!

Why I need sponsoring

I was originally found as a stray in Ireland, I went to a different organisation first then was brought to Dogs Trust. I've not found my forever home yet because I get over-excited really easily and because I'm quite strong, it can be difficult to control me. My lovely carers are giving me training to help me stay calm though!


  • Long muddy walks
  • Playing in the sand
  • Food!


  • Other dogs
  • Cats are scary too!

Dogs you can see

You’re welcome to come and visit me, please make sure you call the Centre first on 01273 452576. I’m afraid you won’t be able to touch me because I’m a bit nervous around people I don’t know – I’ll still be so happy to see you though!
