Dogs hoping to have their day at Best Friends event

Evesham Editorial 8th Jun, 2018   0

HOMELESS hounds at Dogs Trust Evesham have their paws crossed National Best Friends Day will see them finally discover their forever home.

Collies Bonny and Ben, Terrier Monty and Crossbreed Milo have been at the centre collectively for 20 months and are a hit with the team at the Wickhamford rehoming centre.

However, as they’ve watched other dogs go off to their new homes, they are out to prove themselves as man’s, or woman’s, best friend and have called on the help of their canine carers to help find them loving forever homes on National Best Friends Day today (Friday).

One of Bonny’s closest friends at the centre, canine carer Zena Tredell, said: “Bonny is a shy girl who comes out of her shell once she knows and trusts you. She loves her food so this is a great way to make friends with her! We enjoy long walks together in the field and she’s so inquisitive, she loves to be outside. Once she’s settled, she’ll be a loving, loyal companion.”

Henry Hadley who looks after Monty said: “Monty may be small but he’s got a huge personality and is looking to get back to his home comforts in a quiet home environment. He can find meeting new people a little scary but with time and patience he’d be a lovely, rewarding companion. He enjoys his walks and a good sniff around and once he knows you, he’ll be a friend for life.”

Ben’s buddy is Simon Cutts who said: “Ben is used to living in a home so is keen to be part of family life once again. A typical Collie, he’s very bright and loves to learn. He’d love an active home, and with owners who are around for most of the day. He’s a wonderful dog who will be a great addition to the right home.”

Jackie Oliver is Milo’s mate and said: “Milo is a big boy but is a real softie underneath who really wants to please you. He prefers things to be taken slow to begin with but once he trusts you and you can offer him time, love and lots of treats, he’ll be so affectionate in return. He loves to be brushed and give sloppy kisses!”

Anyone who thinks they can provide a loving new home can call 0300 303 0292 or visit the centre at 89 Pitchers Hill, Wickhamford, Evesham, WR11 7RT.
