Hun­dreds of home­less dogs have found new fam­i­lies thanks to a char­ity.

Just six months af­ter open­ing its doors, dogs’ Trust Manch­ester in den­ton has found new homes for 600 dogs

Three-year-old shar-Pei, ron­nie, was the 600th dog to be re­homed, leav­ing the cen­tre with Leone and Alan Mcder­mott.

Leone said: “We both wanted a res­cue dog and spot­ted ron­nie on the dogs Trust web­site. We watched his video, read all about him and came to see him as soon as we could.

“He’s so lovely. He has a great tem­per­a­ment, un­der­stands com­mands such as sit and loves to play, so he’s our per­fect com­pan­ion.

“We are so ex­cited to be tak­ing him home.”

dawn Bishop, dogs’ Trust Manch­ester re­hom­ing Cen­tre manager, said: “We are de­lighted Leone and Alan have fallen in love with ron­nie.

“since open­ing we’ve wel­comed more than 13,000 vis­i­tors to the cen­tre – some­times there are queues out­side be­fore we open.

“We have been over­whelmed with the sup­port we’ve re­ceived and are de­lighted that 600 dogs have found their ideal homes.”
