Pups dubbed Rosie 'Racket' and Susie 'Slazenger' still seeking homes this week

Two 12-week-old Shepherd cross Collie puppies called Susie and Rosie came into Dogs Trust Canterbury just as the tennis tournament began. Affectionately dubbed Rosie ‘Racket’ and Susie ‘Slazenger’ due to the timing, staff are baffled as to how they haven’t yet bagged their forever homes.

Rosie is the more nervous of the two, finding the big wide world a scary place at the moment. But with tiny steps she will soon find her paws in a new home that gets her used to everyday life in a domestic environment.

Susie is also a sensitive little lady and will need help with her confidence building and training. A little shy with other dogs at first, she takes her time to come out of her shell and prefers to make new canine friends in her own time. She adores her toys and is partial to a tasty treat (or two!)

Both girls love their toys and their love of food will help with advancing their training as they grow. They’d benefit from having direct access to a garden to aid toilet training and not be left for longer than an hour as they are so young, this will gradually be able to be built up. They can live with human pals over the age of 11 years.

Dogs Trust Canterbury’s Rehoming Centre Manager Harriet Blaskett said:

“How these beautiful girls are still with us is beyond me! They are adorable, clever and funny little characters who will make two new families very happy indeed!

“Their paws are crossed that they find winning homes before Wimbledon ends this week.”

If you are interested helping Rosie or Susie become winners this Wimbledon and can provide them with the ‘paw’fect home please call 0300 303 0292.
