Dogs Trust in Leeds has several dogs and puppies and these are the ones that currently need rehoming this May (all photos from Dogs Trust Leeds):
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.
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.
Ebony is an active nine-year-old looking for a home with owners who have walks locally in a semi rural environment. She is a worried girl initially and may take some time to show her loving nature but in a quiet home with patient and understanding owners she will flourish into the wonderfully loving dog she can be. Ebony is worried by travelling in the car so her new home must have quiet walks that are easily accessed from the home. Ebony will need her new owners to be with her all of the time initially as she will need some time to settle and adjust to her new life. She will need to be the only pet in the home but in the future she may find a calm walking buddy. Ebony is not suitable to live with young children, but children over 16 years old should be fine. Ebony has a couple of medical problems that will need to be discussed with the Dogs Trust vet and her new owners will need to factor in the cost of this going forward.
