Dog of the Week: Meet sensitive Saluki cross, Matthew

by Staff Reporter

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

This week’s dog of the week is Matthew, a sensitive one-year-old Saluki cross with lots of insecurities about the world around him.

He is hoping to find understanding adopters who will support him, as he will need lots of help with confidence building, walking on a lead and handling in general. He has so much potential – he just needs that someone to give him time and space to flourish.

As Matthew seems to really come out of his shell when in the company of other dogs, he really needs to go home with another easy-going dog. Mathew is looking for a quiet, adult-only home with someone who has had experience dealing with nervous dogs.

While it may take a while to build up a bond with Matthew, gaining his trust will be a truly rewarding experience. His future adopters will get all needed support from our Training and Behaviour team.

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