There’s nothing more rewarding than rehoming a dog in need.

There’s a whole host of dogs in London seeking new homes this International Dogs Day.

So if you’re wanting to welcome a new pup into your home, why not reach out to one who needs a second chance at life?

We have collated a list of 12 dogs who just need somebody to love including a playful Husky and an adorable Mastiff.

To rehome one of the dogs listed below, contact All Dogs Matter, near Hampstead here, or Dogs Trust’s Harefield centre, in west London, here

Nine-month-old Benji is a lovely Husky Cross puppy who’s looking for a new home. 

The striking boy came to All Dogs Matter following a change in his initial owner’s personal circumstances.

Sweet Benji is described as gentle giant who is friendly and affectionate but doesn’t quite realise his own strength!

His new owner will ideally have sighthound experience, so they can continue training with him.

The sweet male also needs to be in a semi-rural home with direct access to a garden, not a flat.

Benji can live with children over 12, however, he’d prefer to be the only dog in the house.

He can’t live with cats.

Maggie

Gorgeous Terrier Cross Maggie is also a resident at All Dogs Matter. 

The lovely girl is searching for a home after sadly coming in as a stray.

She’s estimated to be between three and five years old.

Poor Maggie suffers from separation anxiety so will need an owner who can be home most of the time.

As she can be a tad reactive with other dogs, she’s best rehomed with someone who has experience with terriers who can continue her training.

Little Maggie needs a garden so can’t live in a flat, and needs a home without any cats or other dogs.

She can live with children aged 12 and above.

According to her website profile, she’s a ‘sweet little dog’ who will make a lovely pet in the right home.

Bradley

Young pup Bradley is a one- to two-year-old German Shepherd who’s searching for his forever family. 

The beautiful All Dogs Matter rescue was picked up as a stray.

He’s described as a lovely boy who is good with people but can be ‘choosy’ when it comes to his doggy friends.

He’s looking to be rehomed by an experienced owner, as well as direct access to a garden in a semi-rural area.

Though his owner will ideally have had GSDs or similar breeds in the past, Bradley requires a home with no other pets or children under 14 years.

Badger

Aptly named Terrier Cross Badger is an adorable scruff ball looking for some love. 

A current resident at the Dogs Trust Harefield home, the charming little man is thought to be aged between five and seven years.

The lovely crossbreed is said to be a shy and sensitive soul who needs patient and understanding owners that will give him time to settle in at his own pace.

A statement by the Dogs Trust team reads: “He has the cutest little tail wag when he is happy to see you!

“He is a sweetie, but he can be a little bit shy at first when he meets new people.”

His forever home will ideally have minimal visitors, with no visiting or resident children in particular.

Ideally he’ll have a room of his own where he can chill out while any visitors come over.

Though he loves getting out and about to explore, he definitely prefers quieter walking areas where he won’t come into contact with other people or dogs.

Given Badger’s shyness, potential adopters will need to make multiple trips to the centre to meet him first.

He will need to wear a lead and muzzle in public, which the team say he is very happy to do.

Blu

Beautiful Blu is a recent addition to Dogs Trust’s Harefield centre. 

According to his profile, he’s a happy boy who’s always up for a cuddle!

He also enjoys playing with his handlers and being made a real fuss of.

The rescue describe as a ‘perfect best friend for anyone looking for a large cuddle buddy’.

His interactions with other dogs aren’t quite there yet so he’s looking for patient owners who will put in the time and effort to up his socialisation skills.

As a result, he’d also like to be the only pet in the home and have access to dog walking areas that aren’t too populated.

Blu also needs a secure, private garden.

He can live with children over 14.

The gorgeous German Shepherd Dog is estimated to be between five and seven years old.

Freddie

Gorgeous pup Freddie is a five- to seven-year-old Terrier Cross who’s also at Dogs Trust, Harefield. 

A statement on the website says: “Freddie is an absolute sweetheart!

“He is such a cutie, and his favourite thing is to sunbathe in the mornings!”

Other favourite activities of Freddie’s include playing tug and with squeaky toys, as well as going out exploring.

The little bundle of energy is after active and patient owners, who are willing to help him build his confidence within the home and provide him with safe spaces to settle.

He would be happiest in a quiet, adult-only household, without any neighbouring dogs, and should be only the dog in the home.

He will need a private and secure garden.

The lovely boy requires ongoing medical care so potential owners will need to speak with the charity’s vet team before adopting him.

Caffrey

Old English Mastiff puppy and absolute cutie Caffrey is a wonderful boy who adores people, cuddles and fuss. 

Currently homed at Dogs Trust, Harefield, the gentle soul is looking for a new family who’ll give him lots of love and make him the centre of attention.

Despite his size, Caffrey very much enjoys sitting on people’s knees!

The sweet pup’s hip problems mean that he can’t climb stairs, so he’s searching for either a ground floor flat or a home where he’ll be able to stay downstairs.

Caffrey would need a home where he is able to stay downstairs, or have a ground floor flat, as he can't climb stairs due to his hips.

He isn't always sure about other dogs, so would prefer to be the only pup in the house.

He would ideally live in a low dog populated area, or have access to quieter areas for his walks – though he can have calm walking friends after successful introductions.

Potential adopters will need to have a chat with the vet before adopting him.

He will need his own private and secure garden, and could live with children aged 16 and over.

Mistletoe

Sensitive Mistletoe from Dogs Trust is a lovely young Lurcher with a playful side. 

The gorgeous lady is estimated to be two- to five-years-old.

She adores being made a fuss of but can find being left on her own a bit worrying, so cannot be left by herself to begin with.

She is nervous around men so will need slow and steady introductions over time.

The clever girl would also love some more training from her new owners.

The team’s website statement about her reads: “She would love her owners to really enjoy playing with her, do bits of training and just keep her entertained.

“She enjoys learning as long as there is a nice reward at the end!”

Her playful side can manifest as mouthing, so any children that live there or visit will need to be above 12 years old.

Mistletoe needs to be kept on a lead in public, so will require a private, secure garden where she can run around.

She cannot live in an open-plan environment.

June

Another beautiful Lurcher, June is a lovely senior in the eight and over category. 

A statement on the Dogs Trust website says: “June is a sweet, sensitive soul, with a fun-loving side who will happily do lots of zooms around the garden.

“She loves being in the company of people and will definitely try to steal your spot on the sofa!”

The gorgeous old lady needs gentle, patient owners who are happy to give her time to settle in.

As she will need to be kept on a lead and muzzle in public, she’s after a home with a secure and private garden.

The sweet girl can live with secondary school children but would prefer a home with few visitors, as well as access to a low dog populated walking route.

She’d also like a home where she can be separate from access to the front door, and is the only dog in the house.

June is described as a ‘people’ dog who prefers the affection of humans.

Though she can be a little shy to begin, she warms up once she knows and trusts you, and will be cuddling up to you in no time.

She’s currently living offsite.

Bob

Black Lab Cross Bob is described as a typically friendly and lively Labrador who is delighted to meet new people and adores his food. 

The sprightly senior is looking for a comfy home and a family to give him cuddles galore.

He can’t climb stairs so will need to stay downstairs or live in a ground floor flat.

As he’s an older boy, he’s ideally looking for a quiet house where he’ll be the only pet – though he’ll happily live with children who are aged 14 plus.

He will need his own private and secure garden for off-lead time.

Potential owners will need a call with the vet before adopting him.

Rocky

Charming Staffy Rocky is a recent addition to the Dogs Trust family. 

The lovely Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross is described a ‘sweetie’ who ‘loves to be your shadow and follow you around’.

The two- to five-year-old dog’s favourite things include cuddles and food – said to be the way to his heart.

Rocky is looking for owners who can be a calming influence for him.

Ideally his new family will have had experience with over-excited dogs, or are willing to work with Dogs Trust and take their advice.

Prospective owners will also be required to speak to the team’s vet beforehand.

He is able to live with children aged 14 or above and can have a communal or private, secure garden.

Rocky will need minimal leaving hours.

Oskar

Oskar the Beagle is an adorable hound looking for his forever family. 

A statement from Dogs Trust, where he is currently homed, reads: “Oskar is a really sweet boy, who does have a little bit of a nervous side, but once he knows you he will become attached to you.

“He loves heading out for walks and most importantly loves meeting his dog friends.”

The little man can live with another dog, as well as children who are secondary school age.

According to his profile, he needs his new owners to show him that new people aren't scary, and will be understanding of his nervous side.

The pretty boy loves the countryside too, so could potentially benefit from a quiet area.

He will need a secure garden.
