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 Kenneth, a very clever and playful two-year-old Pit Bull Terrier boy who forms a strong bond with understanding and patient people.

He needs some time to build his trust and confidence so he is looking for an experienced adopter who will be willing to meet him multiple times.

Kenneth would love his ‘forever home’ to have a nicely sized and secure garden to frolic and play in.

Kenneth is a very smart boy and loves playing with interactive toys that put his clever mind to work. He loves food so he is happiest when doing food enrichment challenges and sniffing out treats.

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