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 Charlie, a devilishly handsome one-year old German Shepherd who is cheeky and inquisitive in nature.

This charming chap quickly wins over the hearts of everyone he meets, and he absolutely adores gentle cuddles and playing with his toys.

Charlie is still a puppy so he can be a little bit scampish at times. He loves people very much and gets attached to one person, so his ideal loving home would be with one person who works from home or is there a lot of the time.

A nice quiet home with no other pets would be Charlie’s dream, but don’t forget to keep a close eye on him as he can be quite the escape artist!

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