A sensitive young dog is appealing for a new place to call home.

Animal welfare experts are appealing to find a new home for Fergus, a Jack Russell Terrier, who is currently under the care of Dogs Trust’s West Calder Rehoming Centre.

The rehoming centre have brought Fergus into the spotlight this month as he needs a special kind of home with a little extra love to share.

This focus on Fergus will culminate in the latest ‘Spotlight Sunday’ which takes place at the centre on Sunday, February 9, from noon to 4pm.

It provides the perfect opportunity to find out much more about Fergus and the type of home he is looking for.

He is four years old and his carers say he loves nothing more than to be out exploring the great outdoors.

A spokeswoman for Dogs Trust said: “He is an active boy who loves seeking out new adventures on his walks and running around the garden with his favourite squeaky toy.

“Fergus is a sensitive soul who can become easily overwhelmed in new situations or when around new people.

“He does enjoy being in the company of his loved ones and he is a sweet boy with people he knows and trusts. Fergus is house trained, loves to travel in the car and is an expert at sniffing out a tasty treat.

“Fergus is looking for patient and understanding owners who can build up a strong and loving bond with him. Fergus’ new owners will need to have experience with dogs and live in a quiet home with few visitors. Fergus can live with children aged 16 years old and above and while he is happy to walk with dogs he knows, he would be happiest as the only pet at home. In a peaceful and loving home, Fergus will thrive and he is sure to bring a lot of happiness to his future home.”

If you think you could provide the perfect home for Fergus, or any of the other 50 dogs currently available for rehoming, head along to Spotlight Sunday or please contact the centre on 01506 873459.
