Adopt a pet: Dogs of the week

Posted on: 06 December 2010 by Rhian Mainwaring

Never has the phrase 'A dog is for life not just for Christmas' been more true, take a look at Battersea Dogs Home's dogs of the week...

PrudenceName: Prudence
Breed: Labrador (cross)
Age: 1-2 years
Reference: 10/21251  

Prudence loves life and would live to find a new family who can help her live it to the full. She dreams of a countryside abode with open space and rolling fields where she can go on lots of long walks. 

This lovely lady does have a sensitive side and can be worried by new situations so she needs owners who can reassure her and help build her confidence. Once she gets to know you her affectionate and lively nature will shine through.

Prudence has some great basic training in place and knows SIT and DOWN, but she’d love to learn some new tricks! One of her greatest pleasures is food so this would be a good tool in her training. 

Although she is sociable with dogs when out and about, Prudence would rather be the only dog in her new house.

 Once settled in the right home, Prudence will make a fun and affectionate companion.

If you would like give Prudence a new start in life, please contact Battersea Dogs & Cats Home on 01784 494443 or email [email protected]

TysonName: Tyson
Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback
Age: 10 years
Reference: 10/21279

This older gent is looking for a quiet but active home who can give him all the love and walks he deserves. 

Tyson is such a lovely boy who enjoys cuddles and curling up on a warm, comfy bed. Even though he’s 10 years old, Tyson is still very active and likes to keep himself busy, playing games and fetching tennis balls. 

He’s a clever boy who knows SIT and PAW and loves to impress people with his tricks. 

If you are looking for a gentle, steady dog who will give you lots of affection then Tyson is your man. 

Although he likes other dogs he would rather be the only canine in his new house and can live with teenagers.

If you can offer Tyson his dream abode please contact Battersea Dogs & Cats Home Old Windsor on 01784 494443 or email [email protected]
