Dublin Gazette have teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogs.

This week’s dog of the week is Scout, a loving, affectionate and playful one-year-old male Pit Bull Terrier.

He is a bundle of happiness who adores people and getting to spend some quality cuddle time with them. He loves to play fetch and will do anything for a tasty treat which makes him a dream dog to train.

Scout missed out on some socialisation and training through puppyhood, so as a result, he can be nervous and fearful in certain situations, but positive reward based training should help him gain in confidence.

Dogs Trust are more than happy to support his future family with advice and tips on any potential challenges his adopters may face.

If you have room in your heart and home for Scout, 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.
