Dogs Trust in Leeds has several dogs and puppies and these are the ones that currently need rehoming this April (all photos from Dogs Trust Leeds):
Bear is an 18-month-old standard poodle newfoundland cross. The team at Dogs Trust expect lots of people will be interested in him, but are looking for a specific place for him to call home. Bear is one of life's worries and can feel uncomfortable about a lot of things, so he will need owners who will understand his needs to take things slowly and build his confidence. He is big and strong but takes a long time to come out of his shell so will need many visits until he bonds enough to go home. Once Bear has formed a relationship, he is affectionate and fun and loves toys - especially cuddly ones. He loves his food which makes his ongoing training easier. Needing an adult only home, Bear must have no visiting children at all and very few visitors in general - including none at all during his settling in period because he worries around unfamiliar people. He can't share his home with any other pets but in time should be able to make walking buddies if he is introduced to them correctly. Bear needs a secure gard
Buddy is a sweet little dog who will need to live in an adult home as the only pet so that he can get all the attention to himself. At 13 years young, he prefers a quieter environment but still loves a walk (preferably when the weather is nice)! He likes to make his voice heard at times so needs a bit of patience especially at meal times and when travelling. He is housetrained and should be okay left on his own after a settling in period. He loves sofa snuggles but only on his own terms. Buddy has a heart murmur for which he takes medication and his eyesight is poor so he can be easily startled when handled. Buddy will need a home with a private, enclosed garden. Potential owners may need to make a few visits to get to know him so must live no further than one hour's drive from the Leeds Rehoming Centre.
Charlie is an Akita crossbreed who is ready to start looking for his new home. He is easy to introduce to people although he can be worried when visitors come into the house. Once he knows you he enjoys a fuss, and there is a lot of him to fuss over. He has been rehomed and returned to Dogs Trust a couple of times, so this time he is looking for experienced owners who are fans of large breed dogs, and have maybe owned one or two before. Charlie needs to wear a muzzle on walks whenever he could come into contact with small animals or other dogs. The vast majority of the time he walks like a dream on the lead, but when he wants to go somewhere fast he is incredibly strong and needs owners who can hold onto him and keep their footing at the same time. Charlie is looking for a home with owners who are around most of the time initially, and needs an adult only home with no other pets. Once he has settled in, he should be fine on is own for short periods.
Digger is a very bubbly nine-year-old Terrier Cross. He is a really affectionate lad once he knows you. He needs to meet you many times and slowly build that bond, but once it's there he'll snuggle and play with you all day long! Sadly Digger has had little experience of home life and this has left him with a few anxieties. He's very sensitive to noise, so his home MUST be a quiet adult only household in a peaceful area away from busy roads and outdoor noise. He cannot share his home with any other pets but he is sociable around the right dog and will walk nicely together if introduced correctly. He'll need a lot of patience and understanding from his humans but if you are looking for a project that will eventually yield a fun and very smart dog then Digger could be your boy! Digger's new family will need to have a passion for dog training and be willing to work with our training and behaviour team throughout his transition to a new home. He'll need a fully secure garden with a four-foot fence.
