It has been a busy month at our local Dogs Trust in Leeds.
The York Road based dog rehoming centre continues to receive record numbers of requests from members of the public needing to hand over their beloved pets due to the cost-of-living crisis, as well as working closely with local dog wardens to help rehome an increasing number of stray and abandoned dogs in the area.
Here we get to go behind the scenes, meet some of the wonderful pooches who are looking for their forever homes and celebrate the many successful adoptions throughout June.
Atticus is a one-year-old Malinois Crossbreed who is looking for confident adopters to transition him into a new home. He has made fantastic progress at Dogs Trust in Leeds, but will need to gradually build his confidence with new friends - and the training team are ready to help with this.

Alfie is a fun and clever Collie who would be perfect for someone who loves the breed. Being a real food lover, he is very easy to train and loves learning. He is already housetrained. Photo: Dogs Trust/Kevin Johnson KJ Photography
Bailey, a five-year-old Crossbreed, has a cheeky personality and is friendly with everyone he meets. He loves to go for a walk, but would need to be walked in quieter areas where he won't see too many other dogs. He is already housetrained and, once settled, would be fine alone for a few hours.

Buster is 10-years-old and is full of fun, with a classic cheeky Terrier personality. He has energy for days and enjoys nothing more than spending time with his friends. For those with an active life, Buster could be the perfect match. Photo: Dogs Trust/Kevin Johnson KJ Photography
Noah is a four-year-old Lurcher who loves going for a walk. He would not be suitable for young children, but older teenagers should be fine. He would need an enclosed garden and for his adopters to visit him a few times at the centre before he heads home. Photo: Dogs Trust/Kevin Johnson KJ Photography
Four-year-old Pug Cross Laszlo has a love of food which means he really enjoys learning new things, so would be perfect for someone up for teaching him some new tricks. Photo: Dogs Trust/Kevin Johnson KJ Photography
