And this Oscar goes to...
WE ARE asking just one question this week: why are all the black cats left behind?? It’s a problem shared all over the world. And yet black have as much to offer as any other cat.
Through no fault of their own, they are overlooked, as most people tend to choose different coloured cats. And so, black cats spend longer in homing centres, waiting for someone to see past their colour!
Take Boo, she is a wonderful girl who enjoys the quiet life. For her, there is nothing better than a warm cosy bed and someone to make a fuss of her.
With her preference for a calm environment, she would like a home without young children or other pets who might disturb her precious relaxation time.
Boo truly is the sweetest and most gentle girl, who just wants to be loved and enjoy her home comforts. Is there a Boo-shaped space in your heart for this lovely cat?
Unbelievably given his young age, Oscar has already been passed between several homes through no fault of his own.
When his latest owners realised that they hadn’t taken into account all the costs involved in owning a dog, Oscar was signed over to us.
Oscar, who is a six to 12 month-old Yorkshire terrier, needs a loving, stable and fun permanent home, where he can put his unsettled past behind him.
He loves his walks and being a bright boy, enjoys his training which will need to be ongoing.
Though he is good natured, enjoys cuddles and loves to please, make no mistake, this is a small dog with a big attitude.
He is not for novice owners or homes with young children. Experience of the breed would be beneficial. Oscar would be happy
IT DIDN’T all go to plan when Trifle was born. This adorable young Staffie was born as a hermaphrodite (I’ll leave Jackie De Friez to explain what this means when you meet her – more on that below).
Suffice to say I met Trifle several times before I knew this. It’s not obvious. Possibly due to the hormones from different genders, Trifle can be reactive to other dogs and other dogs can react to her but NAWT are hopeful this may improve.
Setting aside where Trifle’s body parts are, her spirit is in the in a home with other dogs... perhaps the perfect Valentine dogfriend is out there waiting for him?
Thank you for your support, we can’t do it without you!
If you think you can offer one of our right place and she is looking for a really loving home to give her a chance to live life to the full. She has great potential and already knows the commands sit, down and paw.
If you would like to home this special Staffie, meet her at NAWT, Tyler’s Way, Watford.
