DOGS Trust hope families will want to strike gold and rehome loveable pup Peaty.
The homeless hound was named after Olympic swimming champion Adam Peaty after he scooped Britain’s first gold medal.
The energetic Jack Russell Terrier is believed to be between five and seven years-old and first came to the centre as a stray.
Assistant manager John Cullen said: “Peaty is such a character and his boundless enthusiasm for life and loving nature has has made him a firm favorite with staff and volunteers at the centre.
“He didn’t have the best start in life so just like any athlete he will need plenty of training to ensure he becomes the best he can be.”
Peaty needs to be in a home with children over 14 and would prefer to be the only pet in the home.
John said: “Above all Peaty would love a garden to zoom around in and a new best friend to enjoy plenty of play time.
“He is a super dog and we hope he will soon find a front row seat on a cosy new sofa with a loving new family in time to cheer on the rest of team GB during the games.”
