COVID-19 info: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public but you can still adopt some of our dogs: take a look at their profiles to see which ones. We’ve set up a new rehoming process which includes social distancing measures to help keep staff and adopters safe.

Holly and Phil are on the lookout for a new home

Two rescue dogs named after the popular ITV’s This Morning presenters are on the lookout for a new home to call their own. The petite Lurchers were found as strays by local authorities in Falkirk and have found their way into the care of Dogs Trust’s Rehoming Centre at West Calder.

Both dogs were given their names by police officers who found them wandering the streets, possibly due to their inquisitive natures, very much like their human counterparts. Also like the human Holly and Phil, this loveable duo are the best of friends and would like to find a new home together.

Kim McNeill, Assistant Manager at Dogs Trust West Calder, said:

“At around five years old, this fabulous pair are full of fun and energy. They love to spend their time running around the garden playing together and setting off for walks side-by-side. Phillip in particular loves to be near Holly and he couldn’t bear to be apart from her.

“Both pooches are very sweet and gentle. They can be a little shy when meeting new people but a little fuss and a scratch behind the ears is sure way to their hearts! In his short time at the centre, Phillip has already shown off his skills when racing around the agility course! Holly is a very sweet girl who loves to investigate the world around her and explore all of the different sights and smells.”

“We’d love to hear from potential owners who share our belief that a dog is for life, or in this case two. Having two dogs in your life comes with a lot of advantages. They give each other a bit more company during those times when they have to be left on their own; and they also more likely to adapt more quickly when introduced to new situations.”

If you think you can offer Holly and Phillip their dream home where they can play, nap and cuddle together, please get in touch with the team at the West Calder Rehoming Centre on 01506 873459.
