THE Reading Chronicle has launched its Dog of the Month feature with help from Dogs Trust Newbury.

Each month, we will appeal to dog lovers who are considering adopting a dog and giving it the forever home it’s been eagerly waiting for.

This month, Joey, a handsome four-year-old Saluki is being showcased - he adores human company and is looking for a new owner.

Antony Dominy, Dogs Trust Newbury Rehoming Centre Manager, said: “Joey is such a sweet boy and his favourite thing is to have a snuggle on the sofa after some fun playtime and a morning of games to test his mind.

“He is a sensitive boy who finds the big wide world a little worrying so is looking for a quiet rural home away from the hustle and bustle, but a large secure garden where he can do zoomies in is a must!

Reading Chronicle:

"He is looking for a patient owner who work with our team to help him with his worries and make him feel safe.

"He is super food oriented so this is a sure way to gain his trust and help with his training.

“Joey will need to visit his new home several times prior to adoption so a home not too far away from the rehoming centre would be ideal.

"He needs some further socialisation with other dogs so would be best suited as being the only pet in the home but could live with children aged 10 and over.

"Joey will be a fantastic companion in the right home.”

Due to current coronavirus restrictions, Joey cannot be rehomed yet, but you can contact the centre to register your interest.
