Rescue dog makes 11th birthday wish to find a new family

Staffordshire Bull Terrier Casper, who has spent more than 1,000 days in in the care of Dogs Trust Glasgow, hopes his 11th birthday will bring new hope of finding his forever home.

As well as getting lots of toys to play with and plenty of time with his favourite people, his canine carer Kirsty also baked him a very special birthday cake, made entirely from dog-friendly ingredients. As it was too big for him to finish on his own, the other canine residents were all given a slice and joined in the celebration of Casper’s special day.

The birthday cake, which was shaped in the letter ‘C’ was made from flour, low sugar apple sauce, fresh grated apple, banana, baking powder, yoghurt and peanut butter. Casper absolutely loved it and even though he wasn’t given candles to blow out, he and his canine carers definitely made a wish that he would find him a suitable new home soon.

Sandra Lawton, rehoming centre manager at Dogs Trust Glasgow, said:

“We like to make a fuss over dog’s birthdays, especially those like Casper, who have been with us a bit longer. All our canine residents deserve to feel loved and nothing provides this more than spending time with your favourite people, enjoying some delicious home baking.

“We’ve all got our fingers, and in Casper’s case paws, crossed that this is his lucky year and this his new retirement home is just around the corner.

Casper is looking for a calm adult only home, with owners who have previous experience of caring for rescue dogs and can help build his confidence through positive reinforcement and training. He is quite independent and would rather spend time playing and walking with his favourite people, than cuddles and belly rubs.

Casper would love nothing more than to celebrate his 12th birthday in the comfort of a new home. Please get in touch with the team
