New year, new you for pawfect pooches

Doggy residents at Dogs Trust Ballymena have been getting fabulous makeovers in a bid to impress potential new owners in 2017.

Five-year-old Finn the Springer Spaniel and Lhasa apsos Georgie and Gizmo, aged 2 and 7 months, are just three of the gorgeous pooches to receive sparkling new do’s and get ‘forever home’ ready thanks to canine carers at Dogs Trust Ballymena.

Oonagh Philips, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Ballymena, said:

“2017 is going to provide a lot of opportunities for all our doggy residents to find their special someone and we want to give them every chance possible to dazzle potential owners.

“As well as helping our residents look their best, our doggy makeovers are also necessary because hair can become matted if it gets too long and become uncomfortable for dogs. Dogs, like humans, require regular grooming which also includes things like nail trimming too; if a dog’s nails grow too long they will become sensitive to being snagged while walking and this will hurt them.”

Finn, Georgie, Gizmo and all the other residents at Dogs Trust Ballymena are looking forward to a year of possibility in 2017 and will be keeping their newly trimmed paws crossed for the right companion to come forward and take them home.
