Charity plays host to marvel-lous mythological gods

Dogs Trust Snetterton rehoming appeal

To coincide with the launch of sci-fi action film, Thor: Ragnarok this week, Dogs Trust Snetterton has played host to its very own superheroes, Thor, Hulk, Hela and Loki.

Whilst the charity’s ‘mythological creatures’ Thor the Akita and Loki the German Shepherd Dog have found loving homes, staff are appealing to local dog lovers to welcome Greyhound Hulk and Akita Hela into their ‘realm’.

In contrast to the film, the team at Dogs Trust hope that three-year-old Hulk and seven-year-old Hela aren’t ‘defeated’ in finding their forever homes.

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

“Unlike her namesake, there’s nothing villainous about our Hela! She’s a sweet, friendly girl who loves people, playing and having lots of fuss. Hela really enjoys learning – especially for a tasty treat – although she’s currently on a weight-loss programme and would like her adopters to support this.

“Contrary to his name, Hulk is a real softie who loves nothing more than having sofa snuggles – given the chance, he loves to nestle up on your lap. It’s a myth that Greyhounds need a huge amount of exercise as he’s happiest when chilling out in a nice comfy bed!

“We’re delighted that our superheroes Loki and Thor have become ‘rulers’ of a new home, but we’re hoping that ‘Marvel-lous’ families come forward for Hulk and Hela.”

Norse goddess, Hela, would like her new owners to be home for the majority of the time whilst she settles in. A loving home with plenty of walks and attention, with teenagers 16 years or over, would suit this sweet girl.

Calm and loving Gladiator, Hulk, is searching for a relaxed home. He will happily share his kingdom with another dog and children over eight years old.
