AN INFLUX of homeless huskies are looking for new owners at a Kenilworth rehoming centre.
Dogs Trust have recently taken in five of the breed – but staff have been left baffled, as despite their good looks and loving natures, Skye, Riley, Molly, Alaska and Bear are all being overlooked by potential new owners.
Centre manager Sandra Foulds said: “We have a number of huskies all desperate to find a home to call their own and they would make fantastic companions for the right family.
“Sadly, we are seeing many of these types of dogs being handed in when they become too much for their owners who have not considered the implications of owning this particular breed. They may be cute but they are powerful, large dogs who need regular exercise and socialisation so it is important that we find owners who understand the demands of this breed and are in a position to offer a life-long commitment.
“They would benefit from a family of experienced dog owners, especially of larger breeds as huskies are quite strong.”
Call 0300 303 0292 or visit www.dogstrust.org.uk to find out more about one of the huskies or any other dog at the trust.
* DOGS are sticking their heads – and paws – in the sand at Dogs Trust Kenilworth.
They are enjoying the centre’s new sensory garden which is made from gravel, astro turf, grass and a sandpit. It includes a water feature, mirror, sand pit, plants, tyres and an archway for them to explore.
