The evenings are getting lighter and the sun is shining a little bit more so Dogs Trust Loughborough is hoping local dog lovers are on the look out for a canine companion to share spring and summer days with.
Celine Di Crocco, Manager at Dogs Trust Loughborough, says:
“As ever, we are looking after a huge variety of dogs at the moment. Dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages with different needs. From those who love to be out and about on long adventures, to those who like a short walk and lots of cuddles.
“We always make sure owners’ lifestyles match the needs of the dog but we are confident that with such a lovely mix of dogs, we will be able to find a perfect four-legged friend for anyone who is ready to welcome a rescue dog into their lives.”
Four-year-old German Shepherd, Atlas, is never happier than when he’s on a great walk so is hoping to find a forever home with owners who will want to head out for two or three hours a day. He takes his time to build relationships and can be anxious around strangers, but is very affectionate and playful once he knows you.
Sweet Ronald was found as a stray but at just 18 months this young German Shepherd is full of fun, will great you with a very waggy tail and loves cuddles. He knows basic commands such as sit and shake paw but would enjoy learning more. He would like a home where he is the only dog so he can lap up all the love.
Alaskan Malamute Kai has been waiting more than a year to find his forever home. The seven-year-old is looking for patient owners who like to get out on long walks just as much as he does. He is a clever boy and the team have discovered he can open doors!
Rufus, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross, was found as a stray and is now looking for a lovely home with a secure garden and with owners who are around most of the day as he doesn’t like to be left home alone. He is six years old and is hoping his special someone visits the centre very soon..
Patterdale Purdy likes to live life to the full and does everything at 100 miles per hour, so definitely needs owners who will love to keep her active both physically and mentally. She is a young girl, just 18 months old, and loves exploring, sniffing, running and training. She can live with older teenagers and potentially another dog.
Teddy is a four-year-old Cocker Spaniel. He has endless energy and will be a fantastic canine companion but his new family will need to meet him lots of times at the centre so he can build a bond with them. He needs to live with a maximum of two adults and could potentially live with another dog.
Two-year-old Tucker is very clever and loves to keep his brain busy so has his paws crossed for a family that will enjoy continuing his training, as well as taking him on great outdoor adventures. He will definitely keep his owners on their toes so would benefit from living with adults only and no other pets.
