Welcome to Snetterton Rehoming Centre
Welcome to Dogs Trust Snetterton!
Thank you for visiting our page. From here, you can read about our centre, get details of special events this year, and find out more about some of our dogs. Our kennels are full of waggy tails, all keeping their paws crossed that they will find their special home soon, so we hope you are able to come along to the centre and visit us soon.
Dog Of The Week
Song writer Jerry Jeff Walker, said he was inspired to write ‘Mr Bojangles’ after meeting a homeless man in prison in 1965, who referred to himself by the name to conceal his true identity to the police. In no trouble with the law, but without a home, three year old German Shepherd, Bojangles, is hoping she can leave kennel life behind her soon for a bright and loving future.
Says Kate Brewster, Dogs Trust Snetterton Supporter Relations Officer:
“Bojangles is a cuddly girl, who just adores people and fuss. Typical of her breed Bojangles is loving and very loyal, and if you are a fan of the Shepherd breed, it would be impossible not to fall in love with her. Bojangles has lived in a home before, so is finding kennel life tough, she can live with children as young as eight, however she doesn’t like to be left alone so will need adopters who can build this up slowly to start with until she is settled.
“A bright girl, Bojangles is keen to learn and her love of treats means she’s quick to pick up new skills. A playful pooch, she really enjoys a game of fetch, and will even bring the ball back! Bojangles is a fantastic companion who has come in to us through no fault of her own and we would love to see her find her forever home soon.”
If you think you could offer Bojangles a home please contact the team at Dogs Trust Snetterton on 01953 498 377 or visit them at North End Row, Snetterton, Norfolk, NR16 2LD. www.dogstrust.org.uk.
