Gentle giant Nellie is on the look-out for a loving home

Stratford Editorial 27th Dec, 2021   0

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.

If you have a tennis ball, the chances are five-year-old Mastiff Nellie won’t be far behind you! This gentle giant is looking for a loving home with patient owners who won’t demand too much of her whilst she settles in.

She would like an adult-only home and as she reacts to dogs, it would be better for her if there were no neighbouring dogs so she can relax in a secure garden. Her new owners will need to carry on with her basic training so she can reach her potential and she doesn’t like being left home alone so they will need to be around a lot, particularly at first. Nellie will benefit from meeting her potential adopters at the centre several times to build a bond with them before she heads home.
