Former stray Nigel is a people-loving pooch at heart

POOCHES at Dogs Trust Kenilworth have got their paws crossed 2022 will mean, not only a new start, but a new home too.

Staff at Dogs Trust Kenilworth – who have around 120 dogs in their care – are calling on dog lovers who want to welcome a furry friend into their life in 2022, to consider adopting a rescue dog.

Following our previous four-legged festive campaigns – which have seen dogs rehomed as a result – the Observer is once again showcasing potential canine companions in the hopes readers, with a paw-shaped hole in their heart, might consider taking one home.

Sadly Nigel, who is three, was found as a stray but, despite what he’s been through, he is a typical lively Patterdale who loves to be on the go.

His favourite thing is spending time with people, but he can be sensitive and gets overwhelmed easily, which could be as a result of him having to fend for himself before being rescued.

He loves to be kept busy and loves toys, especially squeaky ones, and food – particularly sausages! Tasty treats and noisy toys will help his owners build a bond with Nigel and will also be great rewards when doing training.

He likes having a fuss made of him, but he is also happy to be left alone for a few hours and has been crate trained.

He would prefer to be walked in quieter areas so a rural home would suit him best.
