Dogs looking for homes

HERE’S this month’s selection of gorgeous dogs from Dogs Trust Merseyside.


DOG BREED: Crossbreed


Buddy is a lovely, lively and affectionate boy – what more could you want!? He’s going to need an active home as he’s a mix of Collie and Bernese Mountain Dog! He’s very playful and loves to frolic about off lead with his toys. He loves being made a fuss of and will shower you with lots of kisses, if that’s your thing!

Buddy will need lots of mental and physical stimulation. He’s a smart cookie who will do exceptionally well with some training classes. He’s fantastic with other dogs but needs to learn a little doggy etiquette! Buddy can live with children aged 14 and above, and collie type experience would be preferred.


DOG BREED: Border Collie


Rosie is a sweet girl who is used to a rural life.  She is a working dog and would do very well with people who have collie experience. She loves to be near you and often seeks out affection and belly rubs. Rosie bonds very quickly with people and loves being groomed, or having any kind of one on one interaction.

Rosie has lived with a quiet Collie so would welcome a similar canine companion in her new forever home. She doesn’t like a lot of noise, so ideally she needs a rural-ish home with collie savvy people, and sensible children aged eight and over.


DOG BREED: Jack Russell cross


Jack is an independent little fella, but a friendly boy who enjoys company, especially if he thinks you’ve a tasty nibble or two in your pocket! He’s quite an energetic dog who likes to be out and about having a good old explore, and gets very giddy when it’s time to put his harness on. When out, Jack prances like a show pony and looks adorable!

Jack is looking for a family with dog experience as he does have a few quirks. It may take a little while to settle into his new home as he is sometimes worried by new situations, though he is very inquisitive in new places. Jack can live with children aged 14 and over, and is happy to be left alone to relax for a few hours.
