Can you give a home to this delightful double act?

Solihull Editorial 5th Apr, 2017   0

STAFF at Dogs Trust Kenilworth are appealing for a loving home for a plus-sized doggy double act who were found wandering the streets together with only each other for company.

Staff at the Honiley-based rehoming centre are convinced that Labradors, five-year-old Peggy and nine-year-old Percy, must’ve lived together for a long time, as they are completely inseparable.

They are a little on the heavy side, tipping the scales at a combined 80kg, so are on a special doggy diet to help them shift the pounds. They are already doing well on their weight loss journey but both need to lose approximately 10kgs each to reach their ideal weight so they are looking for new owners to continue with their healthy diet and exercise regime.

The delightful duo are a firm favourite with their canine carers but are keeping their paws firmly crossed that their special someone is out there somewhere.

Emma Healey, Rehoming Centre Deputy Manager at Dogs Trust Kenilworth, said: “We hope Peggy and Percy don’t spend too long waiting for their special someone as they are super dogs with so much love to give. They are both incredibly friendly and love people and toys.

“They could both do with shedding some pounds so they are on a strict diet to help them get back to their best.

“But they are very happy, sociable dogs and really do bring out the best in each other, so we are looking to keep them together as they seem to enjoy their life in each other’s company.

“We’re sure that in the right home and with plenty of support, they’ll settle in quickly and together they will become a slimming duo and shift the weight in no time.”

Peggy and Percy could live with children over 12 years old and would prefer to be the only pets in the home.

They are looking for a quiet home, that’s not too active but with owners who can take them on regular walks to keep them on the right track and help them trim down to a healthier size and keep those pounds off.
