Could you give one a home?
If you’re searching for a new companion, do consider adopting from a local rescue.
1. Milo - three-year-old Pug cross Yorkshire Terrier
Milo is a sensitive boy who loves a fuss once he knows you but can take his time to build confidence with new humans. Dogs Trust describes him as 'a lovely little chap' who needs owners who will take time to bond with him before taking him out into the big wide world. He will need to be the only animal in his new home and have adopters who are able to build up any leaving times very gradually as he is worried being left by himself. Photo: Dogs Trust
2. Bobbi - 11-year-old Border Collie
Bobbi is an adorable boy who has been described as 'a rather sensitive soul'. He is apprehensive around new people, as well as loud or sudden noises, so will need to live in a peaceful, adult-only home. He loves the company of other friendly canines, and they tend to give him confidence whilst out on his walks. However, he would best be suited to a home where he can relish all the attention as the only pet. It may take Bobbi a while until he feels fully settled into his new environment, and in the initial stages, it is suggested to allow him open access to the garden. As such, a garden of his own is essential. He’ll also need a quiet section of the house where he could take himself off to feel safe and relaxed when overwhelmed. Photo: Dogs Trust
3. Tyke - seven-year-old German Shepherd cross
Tyke is a big softie at heart, Dogs Trust says. He's keen to find an understanding family who could offer him their patience and gradually build his confidence, while introducing him to new experiences at his own pace. Much more a fan of the peaceful side of life, Tyke will appreciate being taken to quiet walking locations, where he can investigate a regular route. Hewould love to live a quieter lifestyle in a relaxing home, where the youngest members of his family are in their later teens. While Tyke needs to be the only dog at home, he’ll benefit from ongoing training to build up his social skills with other dogs. He cannot live with any cats, house rabbits, or guinea pigs, and will require a garden of his own. Photo: Dogs Trust
4. Finn - 11-month-old Labrador
Dogs Trust says Finn is a gorgeous young chap who is full of beans! He is still learning all about the big wide world and would love to find a family who have plenty of time to dedicate to his training. Teaching him some of the basics, such as how to calm down when over-stimulated and working on his loose-lead walking would be hugely beneficial. Being such a bright and enthusiastic boy, Finn would also enjoy learning fun new tricks and skills to keep him busy. Finn is currently suited to be the only dog in his new home, while he works on his social skills, his new adopters will need to keen to carry on his training in this area. A garden of his own would be preferred so that he can enjoy a good run about to burn off some steam. Photo: Dogs Trust
