Jet predicts The Six Nations

As rugby fans sit back to enjoy the latest round of the six nations, Jet, a ball mad homeless hound from Dogs Trust Bridgend who found fame after successfully predicting the results of the Rugby World cup is busy predicting this weekend’s results, and he’s got his own thoughts on which team will rein victorious.

Jet has been at the rehoming centre in Bridgend for over 25 years in dog years, which means he could potentially have been overlooked by over 7000 people and seen nearly 2750 of his furry counterparts find their own happy homes. The sweet natured crossbreed has been at the rehoming centre since before Wales won the 2012 Grand slam and is hoping he will finally be watching the next tournament in a loving home of his own. Whilst he waits for someone to offer him the happy home he deserves he is enjoying his favourite past time of playing with rugby balls, and has been having fun predicting the results with his carers.

Jet didn’t have the best start in life after he came to the rehoming centre when his owners could no longer care for him. Despite this, he absolutely adores people and staff are baffled as to why potential adopters are still not showing any interest in him. He loves his home comforts so his carers are desperate to see him finally experience life in a loving home where he can do what he enjoys – curling up on the sofa and watching the rugby with someone to give him plenty of fuss and attention.

Linda Feagan Dogs Trust Supporter Relations Officer, explains:

“Jet is a welsh boy through and through but as he has gained a national reputation for his predictions – we are careful that the process is as fair as possible, with this in mind we have little doubt that, as Jet predicts, it will be a win for Wales in Cardiff on Friday. He has also predicted victory for Ireland and a surprise win for Italy who should also be confident they will champion at the weekend”

Linda adds: “He is such an affectionate boy who would prefer to be the only dog in the home so that he can enjoy all your attention to himself. He is looking for a home with older children as he is very energetic.  His new owners will need to be very patient and prepared to help him settle into a home after spending so long in Kennels. I can’t believe that he has been so unlucky to have been overlooked over all this time by so many potential owners when he is such a fantastic dog. Jet is full of fun and he is very loving & affectionate. Although I will really miss him I know the right home is out there for him and I just hope this will finally be the year in which he finds it. We hope his predictions come true but the real celebration would be to see him find a happy new home.”
