An Appeal Has Been Launched To Find A Home For The Oldest Dog In Care In Britain

An appeal has been launched to find a home for the oldest dog in care in Britain.

The 17-year-old Jack Russell Terrier called Tonks is the equivalent of over 100 human years.

Tonks lives at Dogs Trust Kenilworth in Warwickshire since being taken in off the streets and is the oldest at all of Dog Trust’s re-homing centres in the UK.

The charity says the elderly canine is still in fine fettle.

He needs a comfy home to put his paws up, so would suit someone looking for a sedate pet.

Kenilworth Dogs Trust, Manager Emma Healey said: “It’s especially sad when older dogs come to us through no fault of their own.

“Tonks is getting lots of TLC here at the rehoming centre but we’re really hoping somebody will open their home and heart to this mature chap really soon.

“There are so many advantages to owning an older dog and they make great companions.

“Tonks is looking for a quiet home to keep someone company who is around for most of the day.

“He doesn’t need much exercise but is happy to go for a stroll or potter about in the garden.

“He could live with children over the age of eight and could live with another dog but tends to prefer human company so would be at his happiest relaxing in a comfy bed with his new family near him.”

If you can offer Tonks a home, please call 01926 569236 or go to the rehoming centre in Honiley, Kenilworth, CV8 1NP.
