12 Dogs of Christmas - Olivia has spent years in kennels and would love a home of her own

Leamington Editorial 21st Dec, 2019   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.

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.”


Olivia is a nine-year-old Lucher who has spent years in kennels. She loves her food and zooming around to burn off her energy. She’s a clever pooch and would enjoy a home with owners who can stimulate her mind through trick training or agility.

Olivia loves her home comforts and snoozing on a large, cosy duvet in her kennel. She is looking for an adult-only home where she’ll be the only pet. She can be shy at first but soon comes around if there is a tasty treat involved.
