Christmas wish for overlooked pooch

Staff at Dogs Trust Evesham are appealing for a home for resident Geoffrey who will be spending a second Christmas at the rehoming centre.

Geoffrey is a four-year-old Rottweiler cross who has just one thing on his Christmas wish list - that 2017 will be the year he finally finds a loving home.

Whilst his carers adore having him around, they would love nothing more than to see him fulfil his dreams of becoming part of a family of his own.

The staff and dedicated training team at Dogs Trust Evesham have been working with Geoffrey since he came in as a stray back in August 2015 to help him learn to trust new people. The super bright boy has come on leaps and bounds this year and is now hoping his Christmas wish comes true and that he finally finds his 'furrytale' ending.

Chris Slight, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Evesham, said:

"Geoffrey is a lovely chap. He is very bright and picks up on training quickly, enjoys treats, and loves to play with toys. But he can get himself rather worried and worked up about different situations.

"He is looking for a home with very patient owners who have experience of Rottweilers. He will need some time to come out of his shell and settle but he really is worth the wait and the behaviour team at Evesham will be on hand to assist his new family before, during and after adoption. This charming lad really deserves a home to call his own and we just hope 2017 is the year that happens."

It's not just Geoffrey that will be spending Christmas at Dogs Trust Evesham. There will be 40 dogs in total at the rehoming centre on Christmas Day and staff will be pulling out all the stops to make the festive season as fun-filled as possible.

Chris continues:

"Christmas Day at the rehoming centre is made to be as jolly as possible with staff getting into the festive spirit and spoiling the homeless hounds who are staying at the centre whilst they wait for their forever homes.

"Whilst the dogs in our care will get the chance to enjoy the festive season, sadly this isn't the case for hundreds of dogs who are abandoned every Christmas. We urge anyone thinking of getting a dog during this busy period to seriously think about the commitment involved before making a decision."
