Can you change the tale for Deno?

Later this month we will be celebrating our sixth birthday at Dogs Trust Manchester and we wanted to say thank you to everyone who has supported us since we opened in October 2014.

Thousands of dogs have found their forever homes thanks to dog lovers choosing to adopt not shop, so thank you.

Although our centres aren’t open for public browsing at the moment due, we are still finding dogs their ideal families and just recently we have had a familiar furry face come back to us.

Deno is an eleven-year-old Siberian Husky who first came to us in January 2017 after his owner could sadly no longer look after him due to ill health. He has spent three happy years in a home but due to a recent change in his family’s circumstances, he has found himself back with us.

He’s a beautiful boy and we are thoroughly enjoying looking after him, but we are really hoping that the fact that he is an older gentleman doesn’t put people off wanting to give him a forever home, as he is an absolute delight.

He loves going out on adventures and particularly likes the beach and splashing about in water wherever he can find it. He likes his independence, as do most Huskies, and he doesn’t like to be over-handled but he’s really friendly and gets very excited when it’s playtime. He is always happy to say hello to calm dogs, although he would like to be the only dog in his new home.

He would make a lovely family pet and can live with children aged eleven and over. He would love a garden but there will need to be fences of around six foot as he likes to sniff out an adventure if the opportunity arises! At the moment he gets a little restless in the car on longer journeys so those trips to the beach might have to wait a while, and he would love his human friends to be around most of the time at home.

Dogs Trust estimates up to 40,000 more dogs could be at risk of abandonment in the fallout of the coronavirus crisis. If you can help Change the Tale for these dogs please visit
