Norris is afraid of thunder. And, just after I left, the skies darkened and quick as a flash, thunder arrived.
Thank goodness, he was safely tucked up at Dogs Trust.
Through no fault of his own, this is Norris’ second stay at Dogs Trust.
This delightful six to seven-year-old English Bull Terrier crossbreed was rehomed from there in 2009 but, due to family reasons, he came back earlier this year.
But now, Norris has got used to family life and doesn’t like being in kennels.
Norris is looking for an active home where he can have plenty of exercise and attention.
He can be homed with children aged eight and upwards.
He is good with other dogs and can be left for a few hours a day.
An escape-proof garden with high fencing is essential as, given the opportunity, he has a history of escaping.
If you can home him, Norris is waiting for you at Dogs Trust, Highway Farm, Harvil Rd, Harefield , UB9 6JW or call 01895 453930.
At present Dogs Trust is a hive of activity getting ready for their Fun Day on Sunday June 7 (10.30am-4pm). This annual event will be full of activities. There’s an all-day dog show with classes including cutest crossbreed and waggiest tail. There’s also a home-made cake and biscuit stall, children’s fun area, gifts, crafts and dog agility. Just in case you’ve got anything in your pockets you shouldn’t have, be warned – there will also be a display team from the prison service there, demonstrating drug search techniques learnt by dogs rehomed to them by Dogs Trust.
If you have any new or nearly-new items, they can sell, please take them to the centre. They are also asking for home-made cakes and biscuits, so if you can make any, please bring them either on the day or the day before (address above). More details from 01895 453951.
