12 Dogs of Christmas - 12-year-old Copper does not let age hold him back

Leamington Editorial 21st Dec, 2020   0

HOMELESS dogs are hoping to find somewhere to put their paws up this Christmas.

After the success of the Observer and Dogs Trust’s 12 Dogs of Christmas appeal in recent years – we are again appealing to readers to find a place in their hearts and homes for a four-legged friend.

Despite the impact of the pandemic, the Honiley-based rehoming centre has found homes for more than 600 dogs this year – and they are hoping it won’t be long before these twelve find their special someone too.

Assistant manager James Ackner said: “It has of course been a year none of us could have imagined, but thanks to the dog-loving public who have opened their hearts and their homes to our gorgeous dogs, we have continued to find dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages their ideal families.

“We want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in whatever way this year, and we have our fingers crossed that it won’t be too long before we are waving a very fond farewell to these dogs who are more than ready to head off to their forever homes.”

Eleven-year-old harrier Copper does not let age hold him back. He loves to go out on walks and learn new things but when he’s at home, he likes to live with adults only and thoroughly enjoys a lovely afternoon snooze. He particularly likes his home comforts and at the centre he has a brand-new bed – an early Christmas present.

Copper is looking for his retirement home and would like his owners to be around most of the day. He can go out on walks with calm, quiet dogs but would like to be the only pet in the home. He likes to be around people, but he doesn’t like too much of a fuss made of him.
