Adopt don’t shop this Black Friday

Rehoming appeal for long-term resident at Dogs Trust Salisbury

Staff at Dogs Trust Salisbury are hoping Black Friday will inspire local dog lovers to swap shopping for adopting and give one of their black dogs, who is facing his second Christmas at the rehoming centre, a loving new home.

Nine-year-old Crossbreed, Cody, arrived at the Newton Tony rehoming centre in November 2016 but so far, luck hasn’t been on his side when it comes to finding a new home. With Christmas just around the corner, staff are hoping that Cody’s Christmas wish to find a home before the 25th December comes true so he has a sofa to call his own ahead of the big day.

Tery Laffin, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Salisbury said: “Cody is such a wonderful chap who needs a very special home and someone who can give him all the time he needs to relax and settle in. He can take time to get to know new people and does like his own space to begin with but if things are kept calm and slow, he enjoys attention.

“Cody is a clever boy and continues to learn new things. He has a lot of potential; so if he is allowed to take things at his own pace and is given the help he needs along the way, the sky's the limit!

“This will be his second Christmas in kennels so we’re hoping that as people traditionally hit the shops on Black Friday, they will decide to adopt not shop and give Cody the retirement home he deserves to put his paws up in his twilight years.”

The team say that Cody is looking for a calm and quiet home with patient owners who can take the time getting to know him. He would need a home without other pets or children so he can spend his time getting to know his owners in his own time.

If you can give Cody the home he deserves, please call 0300 303 0292 or pop into the centre at 45 Amesbury Road, Newton Tony, Salisbury, SP4 0HW.
