Staff at Dogs Trust Evesham are appealing for a loving new home this Easter for a three-year-old Jack Russell with a striking resemblance to the Easter Bunny.
Despite Dinky’s supersized ears being the talk of the rehoming centre and the fact he’s been listening out for a new home since he arrived nine months ago, they haven’t helped him sound out a new home yet. The fun-loving, lively Terrier is now hoping that a new owner will come forward and help put a spring in his step this Easter weekend.
Dogs Trust Evesham’s Rehoming Centre manager, said:
“With unusually big ears, Dinky could easily be mistaken for the Easter Bunny but instead of hunting for eggs this Easter, he is on the lookout for a home to call his own. Lots of people have commented on his striking appearance and we are hoping that all this attention will result in a new home.”
“Dinky is looking to find a loving home to call his own. He’s definitely one for the Terrier fans, he’s extremely clever and loves to learn, he’s toy mad and loves to be out and about exploring. He’s always on the go! He’s not a typical lap dog but does like to be affectionate with his nearest and dearest.
“Dinky does have partial vision in one eye, but this doesn’t hold him back from living life to the full, running around in his garden and showing off his new tricks.”
Dogs Trust Evesham take in hundreds of dogs every year but some, like Dinky, often need a little extra TLC and help from the Training and Behaviour team in supporting them through bespoke training programmes to help them flourish. Dinky has been doing so well with his training, the team say he’d make a fun and entertaining companion and are looking forward to the day, in the not too distant future, when he finds the forever home of his dreams.
Dinky will need a patient owner, preferably with someone who has experience of owning a lively Terrier and can help him settle into a new routine. He will need to be the only pet in an adult-only home and will need his new owners to be around for most of the day with time built up gradually. He loves the company of people and enjoys lots of fuss, attention and playtime.
Dinky is relaxing in a quieter area of the rehoming centre so anyone interested in giving him a home would need to contact Dogs Trust Evesham on 01386 572666 and chat to one of the Training and Behaviour Advisors to find out if you could be the perfect match.
Dog lovers needed to take steps for rescue pets! How better than by joining the Wag Walk, on Sunday 12th May?
Starting at the rescue centre in Claverton Down, Bath Cats and Dogs Home will lead a mass dog walk across the Bath countryside to raise funds for unwanted and cruelly treated dogs being cared for at the centre. Rachel Jones, Head of Fundraising & Communications said, “The Wag Walk is a great event, we love seeing dogs of all shapes and sizes and their owners having fun on this walk and raising money for the dogs in our care. We hope that all the animals we rescue have as bright a future.”
There is a choice of a 2 or 5 mile walk and best of all every dog who signs up gets their very own stylish ‘Wag Walk’ doggie bandana to wear and take home as a memento.
The walk finishes at Bath Cats and Dogs Home where dogs and their owners are encouraged to stay for a picnic with their new Wag Walk friends. The rescue centre has 225 spaces for local pooches up for grabs on this year’s Wag Walk. Places are going fast so register you and your doggie friend as soon as you can. The Wag Walk is kindly sponsored by Bath Vets. Every pound raised from the registration fee and sponsorship will be used to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome unwanted and abandoned local dogs that have come into Bath Cats and Dogs Home’s in need of help.
