Devoted doggie duo want to be together ‘fur-ever’

As International Friendship Day (30 July) approaches, Dogs Trust Merseyside is hoping to find a home for two dogs who are the best of friends.  

Shar Peis Rocko, who is five, and three-year-old Teddy have found themselves without a forever home after a change in their family’s circumstances meant they could no longer be cared for by them.  

Now the staff at the Huyton-based rehoming centre, who describe the terrific two-some as ‘super, silly, playful, beautiful boys’ hope to find them a home together, forever.  

Georgina Lowery, Manager at Dogs Trust Merseyside, says:  

“Rocko and Teddy are never far from each other’s side, and we are committed to finding them a home together. When they arrived, they were really anxious but they are much better now and really showing their lovely personalities.   

“They love to be made a fuss of and are both very affectionate, with each other as well as their human friends. So as we head towards a day that celebrates the importance of friendship, we want to celebrate the bond they have but also hope the search for their forever friends of the two-legged kind will soon be over and they’ll head home with their new family.” 

Rocko and Teddy like short walks and get along with other quiet dogs, but they’d like to be the only dogs in the home. They can live with older teenagers and although it would be an advantage if their new owners had experience of the breed, it is not essential.  

If you think you could give Rocko and Teddy the forever home they deserve, please go to to start the adoption process. 

Dogs Trust Merseyside holds Information Days every Sunday. If you would like to take a tour of the centre, meet members of the team and see the dogs spending time with their canine carers, please go to to book a place.
