On Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th February Dogs Trust will be raising pounds for hounds at a doggie meet and greet in North Yorkshire. The charity’s Dogmobile will be making an appearance at The Market Place in Richmond Town Centre from 9.00am to 4.00pm to give supporters and doting dog lovers a chance to find out more about the work of Dogs Trust and meet some of our four legged friends. The Dogmobile will be carrying pooches from Dogs Trust’s Darlington Rehoming Centre, all looking for brand new homes. Pooches like Tyler, a five year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who loves getting out and about to explore new places. Tyler recently jumped at the chance to visit the iconic Transporter Bridge in Middlesbrough where he loved posing for pictures and enjoyed having a walk along the riverside.

Sue Embleton, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Darlington, said: “This adorable chap loves his toys, sometimes a bit too much and it can be an adventure getting him to share. Tyler can be quite an independent boy but is very happy playing with his toys and will be your best friend for a tasty treat. Tyler already knows how to sit, lie down and give a paw so it’s no surprise he enjoys learning new things.  “Tyler would need to be the only dog in the home as he prefers human companionship and likes to soak up all the attention in the home.  He could live with older teenagers aged 14 years and older.  He would also benefit by living with a family who have experience in caring for bull breeds but his exuberant nature and joy for life would make anyone fall instantly in love with him.”

Experts will also be on hand at the two-day event to offer advice on finding your perfect dog and to talk about the various opportunities to support the charity. Dogmobile Manager, Mal Green, explains: “The Dogmobile is a fun, interactive way to help people find out more about rehoming a rescue dog and the brilliant work of Dogs Trust. Whilst dogs are not directly rehomed from the Dogmobile, if you do find that it’s puppy love after meeting our adorable dogs, we encourage you to visit our centres to find out more about making a new best friend.” “You’ll also be able to find out about the charity’s fantastic ‘Sponsor a Dog’ scheme, how you can get your dog microchipped at Dogs Trust centres and how you can make a difference by volunteering at the Dogs Trust Darlington Centre.”
