Appeal to rehome centre's oldest pooch


Wednesday February 17th 2016

They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but a pet rescue centre hopes it can find one a new home.

At 17, Meg is the oldest pooch on Dogs Trust Manchester's books. The Staffordshire Terrier Cross comes as a job lot with her inseparable best friend Beau, a Dogue De Bordeaux.

Centre officials are looking for a new owner who has a couch sufficiently big for the unlikely pair to snuggle up on. They should also be able to offer enough entertainment to keep six-year-old Beau occupied.

The Denton-based Trust's canine carer Lucy Owens calls them a lovely, gentle twosome. The older dog is the more domineering of the two, despite being far smaller.

They arrived at the unit after their owner fell ill, say staff at the unit, which opened in the summer of 2014. The pair both like their creature comforts, the centre says.
