Meet the adorable doggy duo at Leeds Dogs Trust looking for a new home this Valentine's Day

Meet Arieo and Putee - the inseparable doggy duo who are looking for new owners to love them this Valentine's Day.

The Borzoi companions were brought into Leeds Dogs Trust in November 2020 after their owner could no longer take care of them.

They are looking for a potential new owner who will give them a loving home together.

Arieo and Putee were very timid when they first arrived at the rehoming centre, Dogs Trust said, but their canine carers have been working hard to bring them out of their shells.

The pair are looking for a potential new owner who will give them a loving home together

The pair have enjoyed playtime and activities that allow different staff to engage with them, encouraging them to feel more at ease around new people.

As big dogs, they will need a new home with lots of space as well as double the love for the loyal pair.

An owner with previous experience of owning larger dogs would be beneficial, Dogs Trust said.

The charity's Rehoming Centre Manager, Amanda Sands, said: "Borzois are a rare sight for us at Dogs Trust Leeds and although they have needed a little extra support from our canine carers, it has been an absolute joy to have them with us.

"We understand it is more of a commitment to consider adopting two dogs, however the rewards of having this pair in your life will make it worthwhile.

“Nobody could have predicted the challenges faced in 2020 due to the pandemic, but thanks to the players of People’s Postcode Lottery whose support helps to fund some of our wonderful Canine Carers at the centre, dogs like Arieo and Putee will always have everything they need whilst they are with us, waiting to find their forever home.

“Since they have been in our care, both dogs have gained more confidence and we are starting to see much more of their playful side.

"It would be fantastic if this could continue to grow in a nurturing family home, so when thinking of showing your love this Valentine’s Day, spare a thought for all the rescue dogs like Arieo and Putee who need love too.”

Arieo and Putee’s perfect match would be a two-person household in a quiet area, with a secure back garden for them to explore.

They could both live with young people over the age of 16 but would prefer to be the only pets in the home, so they can soak up all the attention for themselves.

Although the rehoming centre is currently closed to the public, due to current lockdown restrictions, Dogs Trust Leeds can still rehome some dogs through their handover at home service.

For dogs like Arieo and Putee, who need to meet potential owners a few times before going home, the team can take interest from members of the public and arrange visits for when lockdown restrictions ease.
