Dublin Gazette Newspapers has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogs. Snowball is a playful and happy two-year-old Collie Cross girl who likes to keep active.

She loves playing with her toys and putting her clever mind to use with brain games and puzzles. Snowball is deaf, but that doesn’t slow her down! She will however need a gentle approach, but once she gets to know you she loves cuddles.

Snowball gets on well with other dogs, but prefers gentle companions.

She would love to be adopted by someone who will bring her on daily walks and give her plenty of TLC.

Our Training and Behaviour Advisors will be happy to assist her new family with all the training you will need to communicate with a deaf dog. Snowball is a very special girl who has won the hearts of everyone that she meets.

If you have room in your heart and home for Snowball 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, or Twitter @DogsTrust_IE. (Remember: Always have your dog on a lead when in public.)
