While many people have been celebrating Her Majesty The Queen’s platinum jubilee by taking a long bank holiday weekend, Dogs Trust Leeds staff have been working all the way through.
With 84 dogs currently in their care, everything is business as usual at the Leeds Rehoming Centre.
We went behind the scenes and met some of the handsome boys and beautiful girls all waiting to find their forever homes.
Dogs Trust Leeds staff worked through the bank holiday weekend but they made sure the dogs had plenty of anniversary fun!
Cheka is a really little staffy who was heart broken after losing her owner and home. It took her a while to settle into Dogs Trust but has really taken a turn for the better lately and is ready for the next chapter in her life. Cheka is around eight years old but still has tons of energy so a big, safe yard is a must for her to burn off extra calories. Experience with Staffies or other bull breeds is not essential but would help as she will need a little extra training around the harness and leash. Cheka is currently taking medication for her skin which may be ongoing.
Jake is one of the sweetest and most loving dogs you would ever want to meet. He is seven years old and has left behind some fears due to an unsettled life before. He likes to take his time to get to know you properly, but if you make the time to visit him regularly and give him the space he needs initially, then he’ll be your shadow in no time! Once he gets used to you he will show you what a fun and playful boy he really is. He enjoys his walks in quiet areas as unfortunately he is worried about other dogs and prefers to stay away from them. However, he is perfectly manageable and happily wears his muzzle when out and about. He’s so affectionate that if you give him the chance, he’ll cuddle with you on the sofa all day long!
Finn is a super sweet and intelligent 10 year old collie. He’s a sensitive boy who can be disturbed by noise or hectic, so he needs very patient and understanding adopters who will take the time to adjust him. If you initially give him the space he needs he will reward you once he becomes more confident showing his true character which is a very loyal and loving dog with a good brain and a genuine love of training. He loves to play with toys (typical Collie!) and is very interactive with people he already knows. Unfortunately he worries about other dogs but he is a good boy and doesn’t seek trouble. He prefers to stay away and enjoy his walks in quieter areas, so he’s perfectly manageable. His caretakers at the center love him and if you give him a chance, you will too!
