Dogs Trust

If rescue dogs were people

Ever wondered what your pet would be like if it were a human; what voice it would have, what its hobbies would be or what job it would do? The team at Dogs Trust Ballymena have some theories about their canine residents and have put together a list of personal ads on behalf of their dogs based on what they think these canines would be like if they were human; in a bid to secure new homes.
