Dogs Trust Leeds Dogs in the Snow
Homeless hounds at Dogs Trust Leeds had fun in the snow today!
Eight-year-old Spaniel Cross Chox loves being out and about and his tail never stops wagging! He is looking for an adult only home where he is the only dog but where his owners have as much energy as him and love an adventure!
Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross Esme is a bouncy young girl! At just one year of age she is full of fun, loves her toys and is showing a talent for agility! She has her paws crossed for an adult only home with owners who are willing to visit her several times until she is confident enough to head home – and no other four-legged friends to steal the limelight!
Tufty is a beautiful 3-year-old Greyhound who was found wandering the streets with an open wound to her leg but she is now fully recovered and enjoys sprinting around at the centre! She would love a secure garden in her new forever home but would benefit from a quiet adult only home so she can build confidence and trust with her new owners.
Border Collie Cross Koda, aged three, loves travelling in the car and as he prefers to be walked in quieter areas is always up for a day trip! He will benefit from further training but as he loves his food he is always happy to learn new things in return for a tasty treat!
Jake is an 8-year-old Beagle Cross and is Dogs Trust Leeds’ Sponsor Dog.
Sponsor Dogs are dogs that we are unlikely to be able to settle into a home for different reasons. They are usually dogs who have been with us for many years, as has Jake, and require a very specific family who are able to put in months of hard work to get them home. Although we say they’re unlikely to find a home, we never say never! Thanks to the support of sponsors and the hard work of our rehoming centre staff, in 2017 we have rehomed four of our sponsor dogs.
Sponsoring a dog provides vital donations which are used to help our sponsor dogs and all the dogs in our care by covering the costs of running the Rehoming Centres – including heating the kennels, training and medical care and even washing the dogs’ bedding. Ultimately, every penny spent goes towards giving the dogs in our care everything they need whilst they are with us, and of course the ultimate goal is to find each and every dog a loving home, no matter how long it may take. It costs an average of £35.80 to look after every dog in our care for just one day, and nationally Dogs Trust cares for around 15,000 dogs every year.
If you think you could offer any of these dogs their ideal homes, please call the centre on 0300 303 0292 or go to www.dogstrust.org.uk
