New homes needed at the double for devoted doggie duos

Dogs Trust Merseyside is seeking new homes for two pairs of inseparable canine companions who have found themselves looking for new forever families.   

Five-year-old brother and sister, Jack and Ruby, have lived together all their lives, and golden oldies eleven-year-old Tyler, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross, and Bella, a ten-year-old Jack Russell, have also lived together for most of their lives, and are hoping to sniff out a retirement home together.  

Georgina Lowery, Dogs Trust Merseyside Manager, says:  

 “These four are absolutely adorable and they have all found themselves looking for new homes due to a change in family circumstances. We are really hoping that it won’t be long before some big-hearted dog lovers with enough room on their sofas fall in love, twice over.”  

The team at the Huyton-based rehoming centre say Jack and Ruby, who are Collie Terrier Crosses, are a lively pair always on the look-out for an adventure, whereas Older Age Pooches (OAPs) Tyler and Bella are happy with a nice quiet walk and are then more than happy to settle down and have a fuss made of them.   

Georgina says:  

“Jack and Ruby were with us a couple of years ago and are lovely dogs. Brothers and sisters often don’t get on but these two definitely do! They need an active family who will be happy to head out on day trips with them, particularly to quieter areas where they won’t meet too many dogs as although they love each other’s company, they are less inclined to mix with dogs they don’t know.  

“Tyler and Bella are looking for a loving retirement home, but they have lots of life in them yet, so it won’t necessarily be a case of long afternoon naps for these two! They are both very friendly and Bella in particular loves to play. They are all really lovely characters, so we just hope there are two families out there who are looking for double the doggie love.”  

Both pairs can live with children aged twelve and over.
