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 Teddie.

Teddie is an exceptionally handsome four-year-old male Collie cross who can be initially shy at first but once he gets to know you, he will seek affection and cuddles.

New people and places can worry him but, with a soft and gentle approach, he will soon show you what a lovable chap he is.

Teddie is a very clever boy, who loves nothing more than a tasty treat so he will be a perfect dog for someone interested in positive reward-based training!

As Teddie can be nervous in new environments, he is looking for a home with patient and gentle adults who will be home most of the time and will allow him time to settle in at his own pace.

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