Every day until Christmas Eve the Observer will feature one of the ’12 Dogs of Christmas’.
All of the pups are currently waiting for their forever home at the Dogs Trust in Kenilworth, and have been there for a long time or are struggling in kennels.
Ben is a five-year-old Collie who would love a quiet but active home with owners who are willing to continue his training. He gets on well with other dogs so would be happy to share his home. He could live with older teenagers who will give him space when he needs it but will need owners who are around most of the day to begin with while he builds up his confidence.
The Dogs Trust branch in Kenilworth will care for some 100 dogs over the festive period.
Rehoming centre manager Emma Healey said: “Our 12 dogs of Christmas each would make a wonderful addition to a new home and we are appealing for anyone who would like to rehome one of these deserving dogs to please get in touch.
“We continue to see many unwanted and abandoned dogs coming through our doors over the Christmas period, simply because people haven’t taken into consideration the lifelong commitment of dog ownership.”
