Skye on the hunt for forever home after two years in shelter

Evesham Editorial 3rd Jul, 2024   0

A NINE-YEAR-OLD German Shepherd crossbread at Dogs Trust Evesham is hoping to find her forever home after two years at the shelter.

Skye is a funny, friendly girl looking for a quiet adult-only home with a secure garden. She can be shy when it comes to meeting new people but following an introduction, her personality starts to shine through.

She is currently on medication to support with a historic injury. The team at Dogs Trust Evesham can discuss this in more detail with potential adopters.

Skye isn’t the biggest fan of other dogs but is perfectly manageable out-and-about and walks well on lead. She just prefers to keep her distance and is looking to be the only pet in the home.

Although Skye is a bit older she still loves to play, chase a ball or play tuggie as long as her favourite humans are sharing the moment with her.

She has a great history of being in a home, is happy being left for longer periods of time and after working closely with the trust team to get more comfortable around cars she now happily jumps in the boot and spends time there.

Chris Slight, rehoming centre manager at Dogs Trust Evesham said: “Skye makes us laugh every day, she is an amazing older lady; a real love bug and a bit of a couch potato.

“She’s super clever; she’s remained housetrained through her stay with us and knows lots of tricks already including ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘paw’, and ‘wait’. We think she’s a princess and we can’t wait to find her perfect match.

“Hundreds of people a week make the call to give up their dog. Some find homes quickly, but hundreds more must stay in our care for many months because they have complex needs.

“Dogs Trust goes the extra mile for every dog regardless of how long they are in the charity’s care.”
