Dogs Trust in Leeds has several dogs and puppies and these are the ones that currently need rehoming this March (all photos from Dogs Trust Leeds):
1. Arieo and Putee
Borzois are a rare sight these days so think how cool it would be to own two! These amazing dogs are huge and are used to having their own paddock to run around in. Their new owners must have the space to accommodate them and also a big car. Arieo (aged four) and Putee (aged three and a half) have a close bond so would need to be homed together. They can be a handful to walk especially if they see another dog so will need at least a two person household in a quiet area as the only pets. Arieo and Putee should be fine with older children 16 and over. They can be reactive to other dogs so quieter walking areas are needed for these regal giants. Arieo in particular can be hand shy and quite skittish around new people so will need to be given time to build a bond with his new owners. Their coats can be demanding too and take a lot of grooming to avoid them becoming matted. This cost should be considered by their new owners.
Beau is a very special boy who was sadly found abandoned at only seven months old. He loves the company of people and is immediately friendly with everyone he meets. His front legs are bowed so although days out hiking on the hills are out, he is still an incredibly bubbly lad and has plenty of energy for playtime and general walks. Beau is lacking in confidence so will need to be the only pet in his home for now. He loves his food and, being a Lurcher, the way to his heart is through his belly so this will certainly help with his training. Beau still has a lot to learn, but in the right hands he has lots of potential. He can't live with any children under 14 due to his bouncy nature, and will need active owners who are happy to continue his training. He will need a home where someone is at home all the time initially to help settle him in, and a secure garden.
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. Charlie would hugely benefit from living somewhere with quie
