12 Dogs of Christmas - Jack Russell Flossy is finding kennel life difficult

Laura Kearns 23rd Dec, 2020

HOMELESS dogs are hoping to find somewhere to put their paws up this Christmas.

After the success of the Observer and Dogs Trust’s 12 Dogs of Christmas appeal in recent years – we are again appealing to readers to find a place in their hearts and homes for a four-legged friend.

Despite the impact of the pandemic, the Honiley-based rehoming centre has found homes for more than 600 dogs this year – and they are hoping it won’t be long before these twelve find their special someone too.

Assistant manager James Ackner said: “It has of course been a year none of us could have imagined, but thanks to the dog-loving public who have opened their hearts and their homes to our gorgeous dogs, we have continued to find dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages their ideal families.

“We want to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us in whatever way this year, and we have our fingers crossed that it won’t be too long before we are waving a very fond farewell to these dogs who are more than ready to head off to their forever homes.”

Flossy is a ten-year-old Jack Russell who has lots of energy and loves her walks.

She doesn’t like to be left on her own so has her paws crossed in the hope that her ideal family will fall in love with her very soon, as she’s finding kennel life a little bit difficult. She will need to be the only pet in an adult only home and although she may take a while to build a bond with you, once she has done she’s a very affectionate girl and is more than happy to curl up on your lap for an afternoon snooze.

Being able to go on walks in quieter areas would really put a spring in her step as she can be overwhelmed if there are lots of dogs around.
