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):
Dottie is a gorgeous, vibrant boxer that is coming up to six years old. Dottie is dog social, but she is very worried about unfamiliar people and she needs to follow an introduction plan in order to get to know the new people in her life. Dottie has been rehomed and returned due to her behaviour around people she doesn't know, so because of this, we're looking for experienced dog owners who are looking for a bit of a project! Dottie has been working really hard with the training team and now she is ready to meet her new family and step out into the world. Dottie loves meeting dogs out and about, but she will need to be the only dog in the home. Dottie has got several health problems which she is on medication for, including hypothyroidism. New owners must be aware of ongoing vet bills and the Dog's Trust centre vet will discuss her health issues with you. Dottie loves to play and absolutely adores cuddles and affection from her favourite people. She is looking for an adult only home.
Dougie may be ordinary to look at and not the cutest or fluffiest of dogs but he has a lovely nature and would suit most homes. The four-year-old is friendly with dogs and may live happily with another dog or with children aged 12 and over. He will need a secure garden for house training and some mad zoomies off lead. He loves his food and should be fun to train. He likes his toys too and can get very excited. Dougie will need his owners around all the time initially until he is settled into his new routine. He is not a fan of cats and cannot live next door to one. His new owners must live less than an hours drive from the Leeds Dogs Trust centre. He is ready to find his new home now.
Jake is a very handsome six year old Lurcher. He is one of life's worriers though. He can be shy when he first meets you, but he's easily won over if you've got a few treats in your pocket! Once he knows you he is the softest lad you could meet. He just loves cuddling up with you and is so affectionate. He likes his walks and he also loves lounging on a sofa, a good walk somewhere quiet will keep him happy. He's manageable around other dogs but he doesn't like them in his personal space however he is happy to wear a muzzle out and about. Jake doesn't like being left on his own so he'll need his owners around all the time initially. He'll need to be the only pet in an adult only home where there will be no visiting children at all. He'll also need a good sized secure garden. Most importantly though, he needs owners who will share their sofa with him and who enjoy LOTS of cuddles! Jake will need multiple visits to get to know him before he is ready to fly the nest.
Jasper is a two-year-old Labrador Cross who is full of beans. He has lots of potential in experienced hands. Sadly his life has been very unsettled and he has been left feeling quite insecure. The Dogs Trust training team have worked really hard to help build his confidence and he's now ready to continue his life in a forever home. He is still a bit of a work in progress so his owners must be willing to work with us and stick to his training plan, but in the right home he will do really well. He's very smart and willing to learn and once he knows and trusts you he is playful and full of character! Although he can't share his home with other pets he's very sociable with other dogs and enjoys having walking buddies. Jasper will need patient owners who are happy to take on a bit of a training project! The Dogs Trust Training and Behaviour team will help and guide you along the way. He won't be able to be left alone until he's fully settled in his new home. He needs to be the only pet in an adult only home. He lo
