After a year of waiting in kennels Tia hopes its time to find her forever home

Dogs Trust Leeds is appealing to local dog lovers to give a dog a home after she has waited in kennels for exactly a year. 

Seven-year-old Tia found herself at Dogs Trust Leeds for the second time in her life on 8 November last year after her owner passed away. As she was hand reared by the team after being abandoned as a very young puppy, they were particularly saddened to see her walk though their doors once again. 

Dogs Trust Leeds Canine Carer, Amy Carlin, says: 

“After a tough start in life she had a fantastic seven years in a loving home. When she arrived I never thought a year would go by and she would still be waiting for someone to fall in love with her.” 

In the last twelve months the team have waved a fond farewell to more than 650 dogs of all ages, shapes and sizes but unfortunately Tia hasn’t yet found her special someone. 

Amy says:

“I can’t remember anyone ever enquiring about wanting to adopt Tia which makes me really sad as although she may not be small and fluffy she is absolutely gorgeous. She is full of life and loves nothing more than a trip in the car to enjoy a new adventure. She makes you laugh as she gets so giddy and she is a joy to be around. 

“When she arrived she was wary of meeting new people but we’ve done lots of work with her and she is growing in confidence. Once she gets to know you she will be a friend for life!” 

Tia will need a quiet home with owners who are happy to give her time to settle in. She could live with teenage children but would like to be the only dog in the home and would love a secure garden to play in. Dogs Trust Leeds training team will work alongside her new family to help introduce her to visitors to the home so she will be comfortable meeting new people.

Tia lives in a quieter part of the rehoming centre and has some medical needs which the team would be happy to chat to you about if you are interested in adopting her, so please call Dogs Trust Leeds on 0330 303 0292.
