Dogs Trust hopes Paddy will find a country home this St Paw-trick’s Day

16 March 2012

Staff at Dogs Trust laid on a special St Paw-trick’s Day pint (of gravy and mash!) for Labrador Paddy this week ahead of Saturday’s celebrations. Paddy, who has been at the Merseyside rehoming centre since last summer looking for a home, hopes that Irish, and other dog-loving, eyes will be smiling on him this weekend.

Georgina Lowery, Dogs Trust Merseyside Rehoming Centre Manager, said: “Paddy is such a sweet boy when he gets to know you but he can be wary of strangers and this means that he is being overlooked by visitors to the centre. He really needs a quiet rural home and Dogs Trust would consider homes anywhere in the country if the right owner can be found. We hope that he gets some attention this coming weekend, we’ll be decorating his kennel with shamrocks to make sure he stands out from the crowd!”

Dogs Trust is looking for an experienced adult only home for Paddy as he is so wary of people. New owners will have to be willing to make multiple visits to the centre to build a bond with him before taking Paddy home. He would prefer to be the only pet in the household and would need a quiet rural home.

If you would like to offer a home to any of the wonderful dogs cared for at Dogs Trust Merseyside, please call the Rehoming Centre directly on 0151 480 0660 or visit www.dogstrust.org.uk.
