The following dogs are looking for a new home.

Name: Arnie

Sex: dog

Age: 16 and a half years

Information: 16 and a half years old long haired terrier Arnie has been in the boarding part of the kennels for 3 months, since his owner had to go into hospital. She was hoping to be able to have him back when she was better, but sadly she was not well enough to return home and has now passed away, so Arnie has now come into the rescue part of the kennels. It is so sad that a dog of Arnie's age is living out his old age in kennels and we would love to be able to find a foster home for him. If you may be able to help, please ring Judy on 01202 696685 or e-mail info@straydogssanctuary.co.uk He is a very affectionate boy and all he needs is a warm fire, and someone with a lap to cuddle up on and who will take him for short walks. He gets on well with other dogs. Arnie had one of his eyes removed some time ago and his other eye will need regular drops put in it as it tends to get sticky in the mornings. Apart from that he is in good health. Arnie is in the kennels in Dorset.
