Footie Mad Pooch Named After Messi Seeks New ”Club”

A football mad stray named after Barcelona striker Lionel Messi because of his love of dribbling has found himself in an unfortunate transfer window seeking a “new club.”

The two-year-old Jack Russell terrier is being touted as a match for the Argentinian star on the pitch, because he loved playing football.

Messi, just like his namesake, has a firm grip on the ball

He is currently at Harefield Dogs Trust who hope the lovable pooch will not be long sitting on the bench and find himself in a starting line up with a new team.

Richard Moore in charge of rehoming at the Uxbridge animal rescue centre said: “Messi is considered by many as the best player in the world and often rated in the sport as the greatest footballer of all time.

“Our very own Messi has scored just as highly with staff at Dogs Trust Harefield – we’re blown away by his four-legged footy skills.

“We hope he scores a home goal and ‘dribbles’ off to a loving home pronto.”

Fluffy football fanatic

Dogs Trust is the UK’s leading dog welfare charity and has a network of 20 rehoming centres across the UK, and one in Ireland caring for nearly 15,000 stray, unwanted and abandoned dogs each year.

Anyone who thinks they are the perfect ‘match’ for Messi should call the Dogs Trust or visit their website.
