Dogs Trust in Kenilworth is one of the charity’s biggest UK centres, hoping to give dogs a second chance at life.
They can care for up to 180 dogs at a time, from little Jack Russells to big German shepherds.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, re-homing measures have changed, but the centre still gets new arrivals.
The charity has said they are currently dealing with an unprecedented amount of applications, with some dogs receiving hundreds.
However, their new arrivals may not have so many and you may be the perfect match.
See five of the new arrivals at Dogs Trust Kenilworth below:
Frankie is a Terrier Cross breed in his older years.
He can be a worried boy, so will need an older adult only home which he can settle in.
Previously living in a house, he is trained and was able to be left alone for a few hours.
The Dogs Trust website says: “Frankie is a very worried boy who is looking for a quiet, adult only home where he will be given lots of time and space to settle in. Once he gets to know you he is always happy to see you and enjoys going out for his walks. A home with minimal visitors would be preferred and no visiting children.
“He is worried by handling and will need his own designated area in his new home where he can take himself away when he needs to. He will need to be the only pet in his new home and would prefer being walked in quieter areas. He will also need to be walked muzzled. Frankie will need to go to a home with a fully enclosed garden for him to enjoy his outside space. He is an independent boy who likes his own company.”
Boots is a Lurcher, aged between two and five years.
He’s lovely and caring, but will need to live with a family who are home most of the time, as he isn’t a fan of being left alone.
He is capable of living with children over the age of eight, as long as they are comfortable around large dogs.
The Dogs Trust website says: “Boots is looking for a home with people who are home most of the time as he wasnt to happy being left alone in previous home.
“He could live with children of 8 years or over as long as they are confident around a larger dog. Boots love his canine company and would benefit living with another dog in his new home.”
Meg is a Greyhound aged between two to five years.
She is a quiet a sweet soul who needs a family that will be there for her.
She is capable of living with another dog as long as they are also quiet.
The Dogs Trust website says: “Meg is a sweet, gentle girl who is looking for a fairly quiet home. She has been ok with other dogs as long as they are quiet and give her space so could live with the right one in her new home following a successful mix.
“She could live with sensible teenagers of 16 years or over who will give her space when she needs it. Any time being left alone will need to be built up gradually leaving her with lots to keep her occupied.”
Topaz is a Shar-Pei aged between two and five years and can be a bit timid.
She is building in confidence and would best suit an adult-only home with a secure garden.
The Dogs Trust website says: “She is looking for a quiet home with understanding new owners who will give him plenty of time to settle in her new home. She would suit an adult only home with not to many visitors and her own secure garden.
“Her new owners will need to visit her a few times before taking her home in order to form a bond with her. Any time being left would need to be built up gradually leaving her with things to do to keep her occupied. “
Luka is a Siberian Husky aged between five and seven years.
Slowly he is coming out of his shell but was a bit nervous of kennel life to begin with.
He has a high-prey drive and will need a garden with high fences.
The Dogs Trust website says: “Luka is a lovely boy who took a few days to adjust to kennel life but is slowly starting to come out of his shell. He can be a little bit worried around other dogs but he could possibly live with the right dog in his new home following a successful mix. He could live with children of 8 years or over as long as they are confident around dogs.
“He has got a high prey drive so is not suitable to live with cats or small furries. He will need access to his own secure garden with at least 6ft fencing as he is able to jump 5ft. He doesn’t like being left alone in the home so will need a home where he isn’t going to be left for more than an hour per day.”
