Dublin Gazette Newspapers has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogs.

Maggie is a beautiful and bright nine-year-old female Labrador Cross looking for a calm and understanding home to call her own.

She can find the world to be quite scary, so she will need some help to grow her confidence, but once Maggie gets to know you, she will lavish you with love.

Maggie would love a home in a quiet area with a loving family to show her that she doesn’t need to be scared any more.

Despite her fears, Maggie is a very brave dog that just needs time to build up her confidence. She loves nothing more than belly rubs and chasing tennis balls.

If you have room in your heart and home for Maggie 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.http://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.
