12 Dogs of Christmas - Terrier Frankie is a lively boy who loves his walks

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.”

Ten-year-old terrier Frankie has settled in to kennel life and loves other dogs but would be best in a home where he is the only pet and there are no children.

The team say he will take a bit of time to settle into life in a home but he is a lively boy who loves his walks and playing with his toys, so there’s lots of fun to be had. His new owners will need to meet him several times before he heads home.
