A North West rescue centre has reopened after lockdown – and is now looking for special fur-ever homes for two elderly dogs.
Cheshire Dogs Home, near Warrington, is back open by appointment after months of Covid-19 restrictions, and residents Oscar and Perry are waiting on the right family to settle down with for their golden years.
Oscar, an 11 year and seven month old fox terrier, has found himself in rescue due to his owner’s ill health.
The terrier doesn’t act his age, and has a gorgeous smile – but does enjoy chasing cats, so wouldn’t be able to live with any as a result of a high prey drive.
Cheshire Dogs Home manager Anna Stansfield, said: “Oscar lives for his toys, he absolutely loves bouncing around playing, all his years fall away and he appears to be a puppy again.
"He is an active boy who has been enjoying his walks around our woodlands, he has met several different dogs and has been happy to say hello and join them for a walk, he has never lived with another dog however so would prefer to be the only dog in his new home.
“He can be a little grouchy and doesn’t like to be overly fussed unless on his terms, due to this he is looking for an adult only home without any visiting children.
“We know that the right home is out there for this little old gentleman, but we’re also aware that his various requirements might mean we wait a little longer to find his forever home.
"Oscar's here through no fault of his own and he deserves a happy retirement in a loving home that ticks all his boxes.”

And then there’s Perry – a nine year and eight month old collie cross who was taken into rescue after a change in his owner’s circumstances.
He may be approaching his tenth birthday but he doesn’t let that hold him back, he is still very active and has been enjoying lots of walks around the woodlands and running around the off lead compound.
Perry would love a home where he can go on exciting walks with a secure garden where he can play safely.

Anna said: “Whilst here at the dogs home he has been sociable around other dogs although he has never lived with another dog so he would prefer a home as the only dog as this is what he is used to.
"Generally, he greets other dogs nicely and then continues to do his own thing however he can get a little over excited if they do.
“He is an affectionate boy who enjoys having a fuss made of him and is very excited to meet whoever would like to offer him is forever home.
