Manchester Dogs’ Home appeals for your help


MANCHESTER DOGS’ Home has appealed this week for loving homes for four of its longest-standing residents.

Arthur is a black/sable/tan cross-terrier male dog, approximately three years old. He was collected from Petmedics on 20th December 2001. This medium-sized dog had been involved in a road traffic accident in the Gorton area. He suffered a fractured pelvis and his hip was dislocated. He underwent surgery for his hip injury and has made an excellent recovery. He is a placid, good natured dog who gets on with all the other dogs and is affectionate with people. We are looking for a quiet, relaxing environment for him in a house preferably without stairs.

Burt is a medium-sized sable and tan cross-terrier. He was found near Birch Services and taken to Middleton Police Station. Burt was admitted to the Dogs' Home on 4th January 2002. He had been involved in a road traffic accident and had sustained a severe injury to his front left leg. The leg was so badly injured it had to be amputated but Burt has made an excellent recovery. He is approximately 18 months old, is very good with other dogs and has a very pleasant nature.

Rocky is looking for an owner with a love for lurchers to offer Rocky a new, loving home. Rock is a male, tan lurcher, approximately two years old. He is medium/large size with a lovely friendly nature. He is an obedient dog who has received some training from his previous owners as he will sit on command and come to you. Rocky was admitted to the Home after being collected from Rochdale Police Station on the 9th October 2001. He was found wandering in the Rawtenstall area.

Toby is a very handsome black cross-breed dog. He was picked up from Ashton Police Station on the 4th October 2001 and admitted to the Home. He was found in the Haughton Green, Denton area. He is approximately 12 months old with an affectionate nature. As he is very young, he is lively and would suit a person possibly with a young family who would help him use up his playful energy. He is obedient and has had some training.

All of these dogs are great favourites with our kennel staff.

If you can offer a home to any of these dogs, please contact the Manchester Dogs' Home, Crofter's House, Moss Brook Road, off Church Lane, Harpurhey, Manchester M9 5PG. Tel. No. 0161 205 2874.
