AS a nation we love our four-legged friends but sadly there are many that need rehoming.

If you’re dreaming of long country walks with a furry friend or play time in the park, we have got five lovely dogs for you to consider giving a forever home all from Dogs Trust Newbury.

The trust in Plumb’s Farm looks after a host of dogs pining for a new family whether that's Denny who loves his treats or Chester who enjoys his own company.

Dogs Trust has made some changes to their adoption process during the coronavirus pandemic.

The charity said: "Dogs Trust Newbury is still closed to walk-in members of the public.

"However, the team have set up a new rehoming process which includes social distancing measures to help keep staff and adopters safe by matching dogs with their new homes virtually and delivering dogs contact-free through the Handover at Home service.

"For those dogs who can’t be rehomed using the centre’s Handover at Home service, potential new owners can book appointments to meet the dog they are interested in rehoming at the centre in an outside play area, or in a spacious area that is separate from the main rehoming centre such as a training barn, whilst adhering to social distancing guidelines.

He is looking for patient owners who are willing to give him the time to build a bond and prepared to take on multiple training programmes with help from the Dogs Trust behaviour team.

Barley would like a VERY quiet home in a rural setting which is away from roads and owners who will be around most of the day.

He could potentially live with children aged over 14 and that are comfortable with large, bouncy dogs.

Reading Chronicle:

Chester is a six year old large spaniel crossbreed who enjoys his own company and keeping himself busy with games such as snuffle mats.

He enjoys country walks but can be worried by new people so walks need to be in quiet areas where he won't meet strangers.

Chester is looking for an experience home that have had rescue dogs in the past and it must be an adult only home with a maximum of two adults.

He needs a private garden with a minimum of 6ft fencing so he can safely have off-lead exercise at home.

He must be the only pet in the home but can walk with dog pals out and about.
