12 Dogs of Christmas - Hulk is a friendly giant with a lot of love to give

Sarah Mason 25th Dec, 2021

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.”

Hulk is a nine-year-old Masiff.

He is a big friendly giant with a lot of love to give and a home to call his own with cuddles on tap.

Hulk needs a home which has experience with large dogs.

Hulk has shown to be a bit distant and worried when meeting other dogs but does relax into playing.

He will need all basic training but is eager to please so is sure to be good fun to train.
