Four adorable dogs at Dogs Trust Harefield have finally found new homes after spending more than four years combined in kennels.

Border collies Chess and Cookie, Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mr Biggs and Mr Duke, a 10-year-old Spaniel cross were finally whisked away after they spent a total of 1,556 days at the rehoming centre in Harvil Road.

Four-month-old Chess will now be trained to save the life of his new owner Tamara Simeunovic, who suffers from epilepsy.

She said: “Chess has already settled in really well – he is a lovely addition to our family, and he's even made best friends with our pet budgie.

“We plan to take Chess to Dogs Trust Harefield's Dog School puppy classes, and then on to seizure alert classes when he is an adult.

“Eventually Chess will help detect my epileptic seizures, which will make a huge difference to my life and safety.”
