DOG lovers are being urged to think big when it comes to welcoming a four-legged friend into their home.
The appeal comes from Dogs Trust Kenilworth. Almost half of the charity’s 70 plus dogs currently ready to find new homes are large dogs, so the team are hoping that it won’t be long before they follow in the smaller paw prints of some of their canine companions and head off to join their forever families.
Emma-Jane Thomas, manager of Dogs Trust Kenilworth said: “We always have dogs of all sizes, but this is the most large dogs that we’ve cared for at any one time for as long as I can remember.
“Size isn’t necessarily the most important thing when it comes to finding your ideal furry friend, so given we’ve got so many large dogs now, we’d love people to have an open mind and think about what dog suits their lifestyle rather than the size or breed.
“We do know of a family that were intent on adopting a Rottweiler but went home with a Chihuahua as what he needed was exactly what they were able to provide, so you just never know.”
Three year-old German Shepherd Luna is among the larger breeds hoping to sniff out a new home that will welcome her and her many toys which she loves to carry around with her.
