12 Dogs of Christmas - Friendly Rocket is always ready to take off on an adventure

Leamington Editorial 25th 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.”

Rocket is a three-year-old lurcher who is always ready to take off an adventure. He loves walks, toys and food.

Rocket is a very friendly boy and loves to be around people so he is looking for a home where people are around most of the day. He likes to keep his brain busy so in his new home his owners will need to give him things to keep him occupied, such as food searches and games, when it’s time for him to have some time on his own. He would like an adult only home and he will need access to quiet walking areas. He would suit a home with owners who are used to having a lurcher in their life.
