Over 118,000 stray dogs were rescued by the Dogs Trust charity in 2012 and this staggering statistic is steadily increasing. In order to rehome these animals, the charity’s centres across the UK are appealing for animal lovers to consider adopting.
There are 18 of the charity centres in the UK and two young female dogs were recently introduced to staff members at the branch in Newbury.
Amber and Sheba came to the centre as a pair when their owners decided that they were incapable of caring for them anymore. Sheba is a small Terrier and Amber is a Collie cross. Despite their size difference, the pair make the perfect match and both have lively personalities.
Jenny Hopkins from the Dogs Trust in Newbury said:
“The pair would benefit from a little more training and need a patient, understanding owner who will help them settle in and get into the swing of things.”
The ideal owner would live in a rural area and would enjoy taking part in outdoor activities. Both dogs love playing ball games and would benefit from living with an active teenage family home. Amber and Sheba take pleasure in spending their spare time playing together and embarking on long walks.
Anyone who thinks they may be able to show these friendly dogs affection and generosity should visit Dogs Trust Newbury, which is situated on Plumb’s Farm in Hamstead Marshall. Alternatively, contact staff members at the centre on 01488 658 391.
