It’s the start of the Chinese New Year on Friday 16 February 2018 and it’s the Year of the Dog, much to the delight of some of the residents at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. These dogs are looking for a new home and they’re hoping it’s going to be their year.
In the Chinese Zodiac, it is said that those born in the Year of the Dog are sincere, reliable, intelligent, brave and always ready to help others, and these are just some of the traits that come naturally to these four dogs.
Lovable Wylie, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, six years old
This lovely chap is as gorgeous as he looks. Wylie is an affectionate boy who is looking to move out of kennel life and into a new home with his owners. He’s looking for someone a bit like him – loves a cuddle and a bit of a play. Wylie’s wish for the Wishing Tree is to find someone who loves him for who he is.
Chilled Danny, Greyhound, three years old (pictured above)
Danny will bring peace and calm wherever he goes. This boy is full of grace and charm and looking for a companion now that he’s retired from racing. He still has the odd burst of energy, but Danny is more than happy with a lazy lie in too. Danny’s wish for the Wishing Tree is to find his soulmate.
Becky Fisher, Rehoming and Welfare Manager at Battersea, commented: “Some of these dogs have been at Battersea for longer than we, or they, would like, and we’re hopeful the Year of the Dog will bring some extra good luck at Battersea.”
