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 Sidney, a very affectionate and playful three-year-old pit bull terrier.

His favourite thing in life is spending time with people and playing with his toys.

Sidney loves his daily walks in the Rehoming Centre, but he is quite an adventurous spirit and also loves going on walks to places he’s never been before.

Sidney loves seeing doggie friends when out and about, but his excitement can sometimes be a bit full-on, so his potential family will need to work on his impulse control.

He is looking for a family who will shower him with love and let him be the centre of attention!

Sidney loves people so much that he would love a home with someone who spends a lot of time in the house, so he can be their sidekick.

He is an amazing dog who has won the hearts of everyone in Dogs Trust, and he will be a great addition to his future family.

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