Could homeless hounds Eric and Ernie bring sunshine and laughter into your life?

In the words of the song ‘Bring Me Sunshine’, sung by their famous namesakes, homeless hounds Eric and Ernie are hoping ‘a brand new bright tomorrow’ is just a matter of days away.

Having been found wandering the streets together, the four-year-old brothers are longing to bring some fun and laughter into the lives of a loving new family, and they have certainly managed to do that at the Denton Rehoming Centre since their arrival earlier this month.

Lesley O’Donoghue, Deputy Manager at the centre, says:

“They are hilarious and totally suit being named after Morecambe and Wise! They like to do everything together; they even wag their tails and bark in unison. They really thrive off each other and love playing together. They are totally captivating and simply adorable. They really are a comedy double act!”

The unusual two-some are Labrador-Basset Hound crosses, a first for the centre which opened in 2014, and they are renowned for their energy, as well as their love of a foodie treat.

“Just like Ernie Wise they have very short legs but that doesn’t stop them running around and loving going for long walks,” says Lesley. “They really are little stars in their own right and we know they will bring lots of fun, love and happiness into the lives of the lucky family who take them into their home.”

Eric and Ernie need to be rehomed together and are best suited to a home with children aged eleven and above as their enthusiasm for life means they can be quite boisterous.
