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 Petra, a stunning six-year-old female husky who gave birth to a litter of beautiful puppies in the Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre and was a great mum.

She has waved her puppies off to their loving new homes and now it’s this stunning dog’s turn to find hers.

Petra can be very affectionate and adores cuddles. She will need some help in keeping all four paws on the ground though, because she can be quite bouncy!

Petra can be nervous around men, so any introductions will have to be done slowly. She is looking for adopters that are home for a lot of the day, as she can find being on her own quite worrying.

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

You can also find them on Facebook or Twitter @DogsTrust_IE.

Remember: Always have your dog on a lead when in public.
