Dog found tied to a tree is ready to find a new loving home

Staff at Dogs Trust Snetterton are looking for a new home for a dog who was found abandoned in a forest, tied to a tree.

The nine-year-old Terrier Cross, Forest, was rescued by the dog warden after being spotted by a member of the public. He was taken to Dogs Trust Snetterton where he has been recovering for the last few weeks and as he wasn’t microchipped and nobody has come forward to say he belongs to them, the team, who named him Forest, say the lively golden oldie is ready to find a new loving home.

Diane McLelland-Taylor, Manager at Dogs Trust Snetterton, said:

“It is so sad when dogs are abandoned in this way as it puts them at great risk. Fortunately, this lovely chap was found before he came to any harm and we have had the pleasure of looking after him and getting him ready for his forever home.

“He is a handsome boy and very sweet, so we are really hoping that he doesn’t have to wait too long before he finds his special someone.”

Forest enjoys walks in quieter areas and loves his food, so enjoys getting a tasty treat as a reward when he is being taught new tricks. He would prefer a quieter home with owners who are happy to let him settle in in his own time and build his confidence. He will happily live with children over the age of 16 and would prefer to be the only pet in the home.

Diane adds:

“Forest’s confidence has taken a bit of a knock which isn’t surprising given what he has been through, but he has come on in leaps and bounds since arriving with us and really deserves to find a wonderful new home.

“We would like to remind everyone that if they are ever in a situation where they feel abandoning their dog is the only option, please seek help by contacting Dogs Trust or another rescue organisation.”
