Ex-racer Ringo is jumping at the chance for a new home in 2022

POOCHES at Dogs Trust Kenilworth have got their paws crossed 2022 will mean, not only a new start, but a new home too.

Staff at Dogs Trust Kenilworth – who have around 120 dogs in their care – are calling on dog lovers who want to welcome a furry friend into their life in 2022, to consider adopting a rescue dog.

Following our previous four-legged festive campaigns – which have seen dogs rehomed as a result – the Observer is once again showcasing potential canine companions in the hopes readers, with a paw-shaped hole in their heart, might consider taking one home.

Two-year-old Greyhound Ringo is an ex-racer so he hasn’t yet had a chance to experience life in a loving home. But the team says this lovely boy will easily fit into a family and could live with children aged 10 and over, as well as another dog of a similar size.

Greyhounds often find themselves at the centre longer than other breeds, since people think they need more exercise, but that’s not the case. Most can be found enjoying a long afternoon snooze on a comfy bed after a zoom around one of the centre’s compounds.

Ringo enjoys travelling in the car so he’s happy to head out with his family on day trips. He loves being around people so leaving hours will need to be built up gradually.

He will need a secure garden with six-foot fences as those long legs mean he can jump!
