Dogs Trust Shoreham - Thompson

This is Thompson, a 1yr old Collie cross from Dogs Trust Shoreham.

Thompson is a friendly boy but he can be shy when he is around new people and in new situations. He feels much braver when there is another dog around to have fun with. Here he is with his trainer Bellah who will introduce him to potential new owners:
Thompson is a bright young chap with a very sweet character... and he LOVES his food, especially tasty treats! He is very popular at the centre as he has lots of doggy friends who love to go walking with him.

Thompson is looking for a new home with an easy going dog who will help him build his confidence. Despite being a youngster, he is looking for an adult only home with children over the age of 16.

Thompson would benefit if his new home had a garden so that he can mooch about while building up confidence to go out for regular walks. He is looking for new owners that are happy to help with his training and take things slowly.

If you think you can give Thompson a loving new forever home, please call Dogs Trust Shoreham on 01273 45257.

Dogs Trust Essex: Walkies!

Dogs Trust Essex have been for a group walk off site for the first time!

They walked along the road next to the centre and then freestyled up some footpaths, into some brilliant big fields so that the dogs could have a good sniff around.

The dogs played together very well

The dogs all had a fabulous time and mixed very well with the each other. They were out for about an hour and were all exhausted by the time they got back!
