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.
Some of the dogs looking for a place of their own have been at the Kenilworth branch of Dogs Trust for years.
Centre manager Emma Healey said she is hoping people will open up their hearts and homes while remembering the charity’s slogan ‘A Dog is for Life, not just for Christmas.’
She said: “These dogs each have differing looks, personalities and needs but each one will make a wonderful addition to a loving new home so we are appealing for anyone who would like to rehome one of these deserving dogs to please get in touch.
“A dog can be such a rewarding addition to any family, but they do come with long-term responsibilities that will have a lasting impact on their new owner’s life.
“We would encourage anyone who believes a dog is for life and wants to welcome a four-legged friend into their lives in 2020 to visit us and give a dog a second chance to have the wonderful life all dogs deserve. We have plenty of dogs all looking for their special someone.”
Charlie is a eight-year-old Greyhound who is a firm favourite with the volunteers as he walks so beautifully on the lead. He is a friendly boy but he does have a worried side when it comes to new situations and people so will need a quiet, adult-only home. He will need to be the only pet in his new home but would be able to walk alongside other dogs when out once he has gained a bit of confidence around them.
