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 Koda, a ten-year-old female Akita who adores her human pals and has so much love to give. Koda is a gentle giant who loves cuddles and lapping up all the love and affection she can get.

As she gets worried by other dogs, Koda is looking for a home in a nice rural area where she won’t meet too many dogs on her walks.

A big garden with lots of space for her to run around in would be her dream home!

Koda loves people SO much that she can get very excited when greeting them so she will need a little help with self-control. She is so sweet and gentle and could happily live with children over the age of ten. This stunning girl is super sweet, very clever and will make a fabulous addition to a loving home.

If you have room in your heart and home for Koda, 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.
