There's life in the young dog yet!

Dogs Trust Shoreham is appealing for a home for a loveable hound who the rehoming centre believe is being overlooked because he appears older than his years.

Like prematurely grey stars like George Clooney and Richard Gere, Pointer cross Otty can at first glance seem like an older dog, but at the ripe old age of two, it’s safe to say that despite his greying fur, there’s life in the young dog yet!

Whilst first impressions may suggest otherwise, this adorable boy is full of beans and loves to play with his toys or bound about on long walks. Staff at the rehoming centre are urging dog lovers to look beyond appearances and help adorable Otty find the loving home he deserves.

Tracey Rae, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Shoreham comments,

“Looks can be deceiving and with Otty, we truly believe he may be missing out on a wonderful home just because of a few grey hairs! Whilst at first glance, his grey mane gives the illusion of a grand old age, at two-years old, he’s actually a really young dog, and potential owners could be missing out on a lifelong companion because they may be drawn towards dogs that initially look younger, but are probably the same age if not older than Otty!”

“Otty is best suited to a home with owners who can spend time getting to know him and would like to meet potential new owners before embarking on the journey to his forever home. He would like a home with a secure garden and could live with another doggy playmate to buddy up with on walks in quieter areas. If you are on the lookout for a younger dog who can be a lifelong companion, please don’t judge a book by its cover, as Otty could be just the dog for you!.”
