12 Dogs of Christmas - Cookie has her paws crossed for a new home this winter

Solihull Editorial 15th Dec, 2021   0

HOMELESS dogs are looking for somewhere to rest their paws this Christmas.

Birmingham Dogs Home has teamed up with The Observer in the hope readers will find a paw-shaped place in their hearts and homes for a four-legged friend.

The charity has seen an influx of unwanted dogs this year with life-threatening and debilitating inherited conditions being left over the lockdown period.

However it has helped to rescue, reunite and rehome over 2,000 dogs this year.

The Catherine-De-Barnes centre has 12 homeless hounds they would love to see in a home.

Birmingham Dogs Home said: “They have all been waiting very patiently to find their “furever homes”.

“If you’re looking to rehome and rescue a dog in the New Year, book a visit today to meet some of our current residents and help give a local rescue dog the new start they deserve in 2022.”

Cookie is a six-year-old crossbreed and has her paws crossed to spend this winter in her forever home.

She likes to get to know people slowly and is particularly wary of new men she meets but she knows you she’s a friend for life.

Cookie doesn’t like to be left alone so would need a family who she can keep company all day long.

She enjoys walks, playing games and learning new things.
