Dublin Gazette Newspapers has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogsand this week’s featured dog is Esme, a two year-old Pit Bull with lots of potential

Esme is super clever and knows more than 20 commands, including Sit, Down, Paw, Roll Over, Touch, Get Your Toy, and many more.

She can sometimes get overwhelmed, so she is looking for an understanding and patient family which will continue her positive reward-based training.

Esme can socialise with calm dogs, but she doesn’t like when a dog is full-on, as it gets to be too much for her, so she would suit living in a home with no other dogs.

She is a very affectionate dog, and a family that will shower Esme with love and which would be understanding and patient, allowing her to settle into home life at her own pace, would be the perfect home for her

If you have room in your heart and home for Esme, then please contact Dogs Trust on 01 879 1000. They are based in Finglas, just off exit 5 on the M50. Map and directions can be found on their website www.dogstrust.ie.

You can also find them on Facebook www.facebook.com/dogstrustirelandonline or Twitter @DogsTrust_IE. (Remember: Always have your dog on a lead when in public.)
