At The Yorkshire Press, we’ll be working with Aireworth Dogs in Need in each month to help find forever homes for unwanted, abandoned and homeless pooches. Based in the Keighley area, the charity rescues and rehomes dogs across Craven, Aire, the Worth and Wharfe Valleys as well as parts of Leeds and Bradford.
This month, we’re hoping to find a loving home for this 6-year-old crossbreed, Peggy, who was picked up as a stray in Burnley. The team at Aireworth believe that Peggy is a mix of Lurcher and Staffie, although they cannot be certain due to knowing little about her past.
Pretty Peggy is an incredibly sweet and affectionate girl who loves human company. She even loves going to the vets because it allows her to meet new people and get plenty of cuddles and her favourite belly rubs!
Peggy has moved around quite a bit and really needs a stable home with lots of love. She’s completely calm when at home, is fully housetrained and can be left alone for periods of time once settled in. Peggy has been with the charity for a while now and is often overlooked due to her age, which is an absolute shame because even though she isn’t exactly a puppy, she is still full of fun and would make a wonderful companion.
Peggy currently lives with various other dogs of all shapes and sizes. She can be a bit daft and a tad noisy when she sees other dogs on her walks but is easily distracted so it isn’t a problem. Unfortunately, Peggy isn’t too fond of cats so must be rehomed to a cat-free home. She’s fine with children but the charity feels she would be better suited to older children who understand that dogs sometimes need space.
If you would like to be considered to adopt this beautiful girl, please email Aireworthdogsinneed@gmail.com to request a home check. The adoption fee is £200 and this includes the cost of neutering, vaccinations and microchip.
