'Britain's most caring dog' helps twenty dogs settle into life in rescue

Dogs Trust Shoreham is appealing for a home for their ‘most caring’ dog, who has helped over 20 dogs at the centre find homes. 

Eight-year-old Lab cross Mike is a gentle soul who has taken 20 dogs under his wing during his two-year stay at the centre. The team have been so impressed with his ability to make any dog feel at home, that they have been introducing him to some of the shyer residents to help them learn the ropes and come out of their shell when they arrive at the centre. 

Mike acts as a life coach to newer dogs, whether helping them learn to play or meet new dogs out on walks. Staff are now hoping Mike will find his very own best friend in the form of a new owner. 

Dogs Trust Shoreham Rehoming Centre Manager, Tracey Rae, says: 

"Mike has been an incredible support to so many dogs here at the centre – he’s built up such a special bond with them. From showing them the ropes to helping them come out of their shell during outdoor play, it’s been remarkable to see him go out of his way to help others. All the dogs that Mike has befriended have really benefited from having a buddy by their side, and some have now gone on to find new homes as a result. 

Tracey adds: 

"This friendly boy has touched the lives of so many dogs and we want nothing more than for him to be taken under the wing of a new owner. We're appealing to anyone who thinks that they can offer this caring boy a home to please get in touch."
