Big dogs are having their day at Kenilworth Dogs Trust

SEVEN big dogs whose combined weight is more than a grand piano are looking for homes.

Weighing more than 300kg between them, big dogs Ella, Buddy, Moose, Yogi Bear, Ginger, Nellie and Deki, will be the stars of Dogs Trust Kenilworth’s “Big Dog Day”, on Wednesday June 26 between 12pm and 7.30pm.

This free event will see staff from Dogs Trust share information and tips about owning big dogs and introducing some of the big dogs currently searching for their forever home.

Ella is a five-year-old St Bernard, who weighs over 60kgs. She is a lovely girl who enjoys fuss from all her favourite people. Ella can share her home with children aged over 11 years and is looking for a home with a secure garden where she can play, explore, and sunbathe.

Buddy is a three-year-old Bulgarian Shepherd Cross, who weighs around 38kgs. He is a sensitive big boy who will need plenty of time to settle in his new home, as he has experienced lots of change so far in his young life.

Moose is a Lurcher, German Shepherd cross, who is almost three years old. Despite being over 40kgs, Moose loves to run around, and adores sunbathing.

Yogi Bear is a seven-year-old Presa Canario, who weighs almost 45kgs. Yogi is a handsome, clever boy who loves learning new things and going for peaceful walks. Although he is a big lad, Yogi walks beautifully on lead.

Ginger is a five-year-old Mastiff cross, who weighs just under 45kgs. Blossoming in confidence, Ginger can live with children aged 14 and over, but will need some time settling into a new, peaceful, home.

Nellie is a eight-year-old Mastiff who weighs almost 50kgs. Nellie loves to play fetch and is a big gentle giant who would love a calm, cosy retirement home. She can live with children aged over 14 who will help her settle into a new environment.

Deki is a seven-year-old German Shepherd Cross, who weighs around 55kgs. He is a big lad, but a sensitive soul.

Dogs Trust Kenilworth manager Emma-Jane Thomas said: “This wonderful event will highlight some of the larger dogs currently searching for their forever homes here at Dogs Trust Kenilworth.

‘Our big dogs have so much love to give, but sometimes their size can put potential adopters off.

‘The event will give you a chance to meet the dogs, learn more about them and see the incredible companions they can be.

‘We’re looking forward to welcoming you all to the rehoming centre to learn more about our big dogs and get to know them as well as we do.”
