The volunteer staff at Dogs Trust are delighted as Tonks, the charity’s oldest dog has found a home. The 17-year-old Terrier, now named George, was being cared for by the Kenilworth rehoming centre who came into their care after he was found straying. George is the equivilant of 119 human years old.
After an appeal to find the loveable hound a new owner, he has now found the perfect home with Janet Hall from Kenilworth, where he can spend his twilight years. Janet instantly fell in love with his cheeky smile and greying muzzle is homing George after the passing of her 2 dogs. They were also rescue dogs, and Janet is delighted to give George a home and the love he deserves!
“George has settled in brilliantly and has already found his spot on the sofa,” Sue said.
“His favourite thing to do is playing with his ball and losing it under the sofa for me to retrieve for him – again and again!
“He’s such a sweet-natured dog and he loves to sit besides me on the sofa every night. He enjoys his walks and pottering in the garden and is friendly with everyone he meets. I really hope other people can open up their hearts to an older dog, they really do have so much love to give.”
I love this story, and i love Dogs Trust. I sponsor a dog at the Shoreham home, Max, and they are a Dog Charity close to my heart.
