Dog centre’s oldest pooch snubbed for younger pups is desperate for loving home

Staffordshire bull terrier Bruno is the oldest resident at a dog's home longing to see out his final years with a loving owner.

The 13-year-old has endured a difficult last few years and now the staff at Dogs Trust's Loughborough rehoming centre are desperate to see him adopted.

The centre manager, Celine Di Crocco, said: "We believe that Bruno has so much love left to give and would make a perfect companion for the right family. We urge anyone who has the space and patience to provide him with a forever home to get in touch."

She continued: "Bruno is a sweet and sensitive boy who would thrive in a quiet and calm environment. He can live with adults only and potentially other animals in his new home. Although he would need to be the only dog in the house, he could still enjoy socialising with other dogs while on walks."

During his stint in foster care, the endearing character has become quite the cuddler, often joining his human pals on the sofa for a snuggle.

However, he remains an active little fella as well, often insisting that he plays fetch or be taken out on little adventures.

Celine added: "Our senior dogs have so much to offer and are often overlooked due to their age. With their gentle nature and loyal personalities, senior dogs like Bruno have so much love to give."

But Bruno isn't the only dog that needs looking after. Due to the cost of living crisis, the requisite money necessary to raise the animals is becoming increasingly difficult to find.

Consequently, Dogs Trust Loughborough is stressing the importance of volunteer fosterers offering temporary homes for dogs like Bruno until they can find owners who can call the pet their own.

With space tight in the centres, the fostering of dogs, frees up room and allows the animals to be better looked after. This is exceptionally important for elder dogs and those recovering from veterinary treatment, as they need an extra sprinkling of love.
