SINCE Christmas, Friends of the Animals has been inundated with dogs to re-home and all its foster carers have taken in homeless pooches.

The charity has issued a desperate plea to find a new foster or permanent home for Holly. She had been living with foster carers but sadly they are splitting up, leaving her with nowhere to go.

As she is getting on in years, Holly, 12, would not do well in kennels and just needs a kind dog lover to step in and provide a warm fireside for her.

She sleeps a lot but does enjoy a walk and is best on an anti-pull harness as she is strong.

Holly is not used to children and will need to be an only dog.

She is frightened of fireworks and the vets but other than that she is a beautiful pet who loves cuddles, being brushed, having biscuits, following you around and being made a fuss of.

Holly needs a muzzle in areas of other dogs, but loves to run off lead and muzzle-free whenever safe to do so. She won’t go far from you and she comes back when she is called. She loves the garden, adores playing ‘seek the treats’ and will sit and give you her paw.

If you can provide a home, Friends of the Animals will provide everything else.

Please call Lacie, the charity's office manager on 522511.
