Could Paulo be your perfect pooch?

Paulo, a black Labrador

Are you a Labrador lover? Four year old, playful Paulo is a handsome lad who is searching for his forever home.

A massive fan of toys, he’s looking for someone who’s happy to play fetch to his heart’s content.

Paulo is an active and happy dog who loves splashing about in water and exploring the great outdoors. He is fully housetrained and is used to living indoors with his home comforts. He is an independent boy who takes a little while to trust people, but once you’ve made friends with him he is super loyal.

He adores his canine carers Amy and Anthony, who both agree he’ll be a fantastic companion in the right home. Amy says:

“Paulo loves his walks and the chance to explore. He’s really enjoying Autumn and snuffling in the fallen leaves for goodies!”.

Anthony adds:

“He’s cuddly once you get to know him and he really loves to play. He walks really well on the lead and is a pleasure to take out.”

Paulo is looking for a home with only one or two owners, no visiting children and no other pets. Potential owners must be willing to visit him several times here at the centre, so that you can get used to one another before he comes home with you. Paulo would also love a garden where he can run around and sniff everything.

Prince Paulo is hoping to find his new home soon as he’s been in kennels for far too long. If you think Paulo could be the pooch for you please give Dogs Trust Basildon a call on 01268 535050 or visit

Dogs Trust Basildon is situated on just off the A127 on Nevendon Road, Wickford, Essex.
