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 Navy, a dog that’ll brighten up your day and give you belly laughs.

Look no further than this six-year-old Akita cross! Although he can be quite shy at first, once he gets to know you, Navy unveils his comedic and affectionate side.

He loves company and forms a strong bond with understanding and patient people.

Navy is a born entertainer and his hilarious way of playing has his canine carers laughing all day long!

He would like to be the only pet in the home so that he can have all the toys and attention to himself.

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