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

This week’s dog of the week is Alexis, a very special six-year-old Collie cross lady who is looking for a quiet and easy going home where she can grow in confidence.

She has some issues with her hips so she can only go on shorter walks and will need to be careful when walking on slippery surfaces as she finds it hard to grip.

Alexis is a very gentle and sweet lady who really deserves to find a very special and loving home. She would ideally like a quiet home as she can be worried by new people so an adult home, or home with older teenagers would be nice.

Although she may have some problems with her hips and can be a little hard of hearing, this really doesn’t affect her sweet and gentle nature.

If you have room in your heart and home for Alexis 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.

You can also find them on Facebook or Twitter @DogsTrust_IE.

Remember: Always have your dog on a lead when in public.
