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 Brody, a very sweet one-year-old male terrier cross.

He is looking for a patient family who will help him to grow in confidence.

Brody can find the world to be a scary place at times, but with some gentle reassurance he will learn in time that he has nothing to be afraid of.

He will need to live with another, more confident dog which will help to show him the ropes and settle into his loving home.

Brody would love to live in a nice, quiet area with an adult family who will have time to dedicate to his confidence-building training. He has a beautiful soul and will thrive in the right home.

If you have room in your heart and home for Brody 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.)
