Six-year-old Suggs is looking for a family

The six-year-old dog relishes attention once a bond has been built.

Tracey Rae, rehoming centre manager, said: “He’ll love to have you right by his side and a multi-person household would be ideal so that there would always be someone close by for a cuddle.

“Much more a fan of human company than other animals, Suggs could share his home with teenagers over the age of 14 and would like to be the only pet at home.”

Suggs has lots of energy and enjoys exploring in quiet walking locations.

Tracey added: “He hopes to meet a special someone who will join him on fun adventures, play a game of fetch and continue his positive reward-based training.

“This handsome hound will make a fantastic companion to loving owners who can dedicate lots of time to him.”
