The 12 Dogs of Christmas - Cheeky Patterdale cross Monty wants somewhere to put his paws up

Leamington Editorial 16th Dec, 2018   0

HOMELESS dogs are hoping to find somewhere to put their paws up this Christmas.

After the success of the Observer and Dogs Trust’s 12 Dogs of Christmas appeal last year – which saw three pups rehomed – we are again appealing to readers to find a place in their hearts and homes for a four-legged friend.

But the charity is urging people to remember its famous slogan – a dog is for life, not just for Christmas – and think about the responsibility taking on a four-legged friend entails.

Manager Emma Healey said: “Our 12 dogs of Christmas each have differing looks, personalities and needs but each one will make a wonderful addition to a loving new home so we are appealing for anyone who would like to rehome one of these deserving dogs to please get in touch.




“Our slogan, ‘A Dog is for life, not just for Christmas’ is as relevant today as it was when it was first coined 40 years ago. We continue to see many dogs coming through our doors over the Christmas period, simply because individuals haven’t taken into consideration the lifelong commitment of dog ownership.

“We urge anyone thinking of getting a dog during this busy period to seriously think about the commitment involved before making a decision to bring a four-legged family member into your home. Dog ownership can be challenging but also extremely rewarding, especially if you are giving a rescue dog a second chance at happiness.


“As always, we are reminding everyone that a dog is for life, not just for Christmas, and, if you are thinking about getting a dog in 2019, consider rehoming a rescue dog.”

Monty

This six-year-old Patterdale cross is a shy boy looking for a special single-person household who can give him the home he dreams of. He’ll be your friend for life if you play with him as he loves his toys. He’s a cheeky chap and will make a wonderful companion with someone patient who can offer him and lots of love. He is happy to have a four-legged-friend to walk with but would prefer to be the only dog in the home.
