Featured in this column in February , Bosun is still looking for a home and is getting fed up with waiting.

He would have done well in the England football team. In order to showcase his talents, the National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT) has made a video of him displaying his footballing skills. Just what we needed in Brazil, a team of Rottweilers able to control the ball with their head.

Bosun is a Rottweiler cross with a great temperament and joyful character. He is eager to learn and knows basic commands. He loves exploring. If you would like to share your home with Bosun, see details (and the video) on NAWT’s website or go and see him at Tylers Way, Watford-By-Pass WD25 8WT.

How would you like to sit at home and take part in a conference? That’s just what we can do on Wednesday July 16 (7-8pm) when the NAWT hosts a free webinar for dog owners wanting to know more about how changes to the Dangerous Dogs Act that came into force on May 13, affects them. Topics being discussed include how to manage your dog when visitors come to your home and what constitutes threatening behaviour.

Participants will be able to pose questions relating to their own dogs to the panel of experts – solicitor Trevor Cooper of www.doglaw.co.uk and NAWT Chief Executive and dog trainer, Clare Williams. To register for the webinar, go to www.nawt.org.uk . More details are available from Stephanie at s.kaufman@nawt.org.uk or 020 8950 0177.
