Solihull Editorial 13th 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.”

Delilah is a two-year-old crossbreed who has spent half her life in and out of kennels and is wary with new people and situations but is a delight once she gets to know you.

She is highly energetic and is looking for an equally active family who enjoy teaching her new skills and support her with training.

Delilah perfect match would be adopters who love the outdoors just as much as she does, and who are looking for a dog that they can dedicate their life to.

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.

Josie is a seven-year-old Boerboel and loves being fussed and treated all day long.

She had a lot of love to give and understands basic commands and will do anything for a treat.

Josie needs two small walks a day as due to her breed she struggles with her back legs but is having medication for ongoing medical issues.

She needs a home with no children or other dogs where there are few visitors.

Milo is a five-year-old Jack Russell Terrier who loves a good game of tug of war.

He is in search of a home where he won’t be left alone and will be able to go on lots of adventures with someone who loves to play – just like him.

Milo can struggle to trust new people so will need an experienced owner who will commit to multiple meets at the centre before taking him home.

And he doesn’t like other dogs so will need to be the only dog in the home and no neighbouring dogs.

Gemma is a seven-year-old German Shepherd.

She enjoys a good run and playing fetch followed by lots of fuss from people she trusts.

Gemma can be wary around new people but is very loving once she gets to know you.

She needs an adult-only home with owners who have experience with German Shepherds and have the time to form a bond with her.

Teddy is two-year-old Lurcher who loves doing zoomies in a secured field.

He loves to play, cuddle and lounge around outside when the weather is nice.

He is a very anxious boy, who needs a patient and understanding family, who can go at his pace and take into consideration that he is easily worried.

Teddy likes to push boundaries and need to be socialised around other dogs carefully so he can build up his confidence.

Arthur is a three-year-old Lurcher.

He needs owners willing to put in the time and training into Arthur to show him that the world isn’t a scary place.

Neo is a two-year-old Bullmastiff.

He is a big friendly giant who is looking for an active home to call his own.

Due to his size and background, he needs a home with no children as sometimes he doesn’t realise, he size and power.

He could possibly live with a well-matched doggy friend who can handle his boisterous side.

Buzz is an eight-year-old crossbreed who loves to go on adventures.

Being an older boy he will need lots of time to rest and a comfy space to sleep after exploring.
