Staff at Dogs Trust Kenilworth are gearing up for caring for around 120 dogs at the centre this Christmas and are calling on dog lovers who want to welcome a four-legged friend into their life in 2022, to consider adopting a rescue dog.
As part of our regular column, here are some of the dogs that are available for adoption.
The team at the Honiley centre will make sure every dog has the best possible Christmas, but they are all hoping that when the new year comes, it won’t be long before these 12, along with many others, head off to start new lives with their forever families.

Trainer Kira Huckfield is pictured here with Bobbie. Bobbie is a four-year-old Lhasa Apso who knows what he likes and likes what he knows. He is an independent boy who will need a hands-off approach in his new adult only home, although he enjoys a fuss – on his own terms. He loves his toys and will run and run when he has the chance. He is sensitive to noise so would like a quiet home with minimal visitors and no visiting children or other pets. Bobbie’s new owners will need to live close to Dogs Trust Kenilworth to give him the best chance of settling into his new home.
Canine Carer Amanda Griffiths with Sasha. Crossbreed Sasha is two and loves to be busy! She needs a home with owners who can keep up with her and are willing to make sure her brain as well as her body are kept busy! She loves to learn new things, especially if a game with a toy is her reward, although she does like a tasty treat or two as well. She doesn’t mind meeting up with canine companions when she’s out and about but she would benefit from being the only dog in the home so her owners can continue with her training and give her the time – and energy – this young girl needs. She is not a friend of felines so cannot live with cats and would like an adult only home.
Barney is pictured with Trainer Sarah Couch. Barney’s biggest loves in life are his toys and tasty treats! This seven-year-old Lurcher loves heading out on a day trip for a long walk and fun adventures where he can meet up with his doggie friends. He’d be happy to share his home with a family without children – he can live with young adults aged 18 and over. He is a sensitive boy so would like to be the only pet and he would like his family to be able to spend lots of time with him as he doesn’t like to be on his own. Barney will need to meet his new owners several times at the rehoming centre before heading home.
Gypsy is pictured with Canine Carer Gina Francis. Siberian Husky, Gypsy, is six and arrived at the rehoming centre in spring, so the team are really hoping it won’t be too much longer before she finds her forever home. Gypsy is looking for an adult only home with minimal visitors as she is wary of strangers. Although she loves heading out on walks, she doesn’t like to bump into other dogs so she will need to be walked in quiet areas so she can truly relax and enjoy herself. She loves her food and chasing toys so this will help her new owners build a bond with her. She will need a secure garden to relax in with no neighbouring dogs and as she is a big girl the fencing will need to be at least six feet. The team are confident that with patient owners that are happy to help her overcome her anxieties, Gypsy will make a lovely, loyal canine companion.
