Home appeal for sweet-natured Brooke

Animal welfare experts are appealing for a home for Brooke, a sweet 11-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier currently staying at Dogs Trust West Calder.

Her carers say she is always happy to meet new people, greeting everyone with her waggy tail.

A spokeswoman for Dogs Trust said: “Brooke loves being cosy and is happiest when snuggled up beside you for a cuddle.

“She is very clever and fully housetrained and will gladly show off her tricks and enjoys learning new ones.

“A keen explorer who loves being out and about, she enjoys sniffing on her walks and will hop in the car to go on new adventures.

“Brooke is a playful girl who likes pottering around the garden where she can chase her soft toys or enjoy a game of tug.

“She is an affectionate girl who prefers the company of people. She likes to walk in quiet areas where she is unlikely to meet other dogs. Brooke would like for her new home to have a garden she can enjoy. Brooke is a gentle girl who has lots of love to give to her forever family.”

If you think you could provide a home for Brooke or any of the 50 dogs currently available for rehoming, please contact the West Calder Rehoming Centre on 01506 873459.

You can also follow Dogs Trust West Calder on Twitter @DT_WestCalder and Instagram @dogstrust_westcalder.

Every month, the centre host Spotlight Sunday where they shine a light on a dog or two at the rehoming centre who need special kinds of homes.

Follow them on social media to meet the latest Spotlight Sunday stars, Pepper and Mia.

Dogs Trust West Calder is currently seeking new foster carers across the whole of the Lothians and Scottish Borders.
