WE’VE teamed up with Dogs Trust Merseyside to help them find loving homes for some of their gorgeous dogs. Here’s this month’s selection.
BAILEY, LURCHER, 2 YEARS OLD
Bailey is a delightful 2 year old lurcher who has a real talent for putting a smile on your face! He has oodles of personality and is such a sweetheart. Bailey is also very clever and he knows sit and paw, and will talk to you. He also has a fondness for the occasional cup of (sugar free!) tea and when he hasn’t seen you in a while, he even smiles as he does his little happy dance!
Bailey doesn’t like to be on his own so will need a family who are around for most of the day. He prefers human company to that of other dogs, but staff at the centre have been walking him alongside other dogs and now this bright spark is learning how to be more comfortable around them. He loves to play with other leggy dogs like himself, probably as they can keep up with him! Bailey needs a home with a secure garden as he likes to explore if he’s given a chance, and will flourish in an adult home.
VIOLET, LURCHER, 7 YEARS OLD
Violet is a very friendly girl who’s had a bit of a rough start to life. She was adopted from Dogs Trust but sadly her owner could no longer care for her so she’s looking for a new family. She has a gentle nature and loves company and just wants to find a cosy bed to snuggle down in to. She’s used to travelling by public transport!
Violet hasn’t been left by herself much so she’s looking for a home with a family who will be around for most of the day. She is a friendly girl and can live with children over the age of 10. She will walk with some quiet dogs but she needs to be the only dog in the home. Violet does not like cats!
DOBBIE, SALUKI CROSS, 1 YEAR OLD
Dobbie had people believing he was a shy boy but a recent day out at the Cheshire Show with him proved him to be quite the opposite! He was a huge hit with the crowds and entertained people by playing with their dogs as they stopped to say hello to him, but sadly he is still waiting for his forever home.
Dobbie could certainly live with another dog, and the team believe doing so would help keep his confidence up and really let his personality shine through. His background is unknown but having seen how wonderfully behaved he is, he would thrive in a family home with sensible children aged 10 and above.
