Welsh woofer seeks home for St. David's Day

With the Welsh national day of St. David's Day just around the corner, one sweet-faced Welsh Corgi is hoping to celebrate the occasion in a loving new home.

Sandy is 11 years old, and sadly came into the care of Dogs Trust Bridgend after his beloved owner passed away. Now staff at the centre are concerned that new families may over look this lovely little Corgi because of his advancing age, so have launched a special appeal to get him noticed.

Rebecca Baker from Dogs Trust Bridgend said, “Sandy is a superb chap with a fabulous personality who just adores the company of people. He is looking for a quiet home with owners who can offer him frequent shorter walks to help keep him fit as he is a little on the chunky side and is prone to weight gain.

“Sandy is an older dog so would benefit from living in a quiet home where he’ll have the time to adjust to his new environment. He could live with older children who will give him time to settle in.

“He is a lovely handsome older boy who really deserves to be with a loving family who can give him everything he needs. We’ve got our fingers crossed that St David’s Day will be his day.”

Both varieties of Corgi, Cardigan and Pembroke (which Sandy is), are now endangered native breeds in the UK - and are rare in rescue centres too. This could be your chance to own one of these fantastic stumpy-legged characters, and give a lovely older man his retirement home in one stroke. If you are interested in rehoming Sandy, please contact the team at Dogs Trust Bridgend on 0300 303 0292 or visit www.dogstrust.org.uk
