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 Oscar, an amazing, intelligent and lovable ten-year-old male Labrador cross that adores his Canine Carers and just loves to play fetch.

His favourite things in life are food, trips to the beach, cosy duvets and tennis balls.

As well as being exceptionally handsome, he is also super-smart which will make him a dream dog for someone who is interested in positive reinforcement training.

Oscar already can do some cool tricks, such as Sit, Paw, Down, High Five and more!

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