May adoption feature now open!

There's room for 52 more dogs looking for a home in our May edition out April. 
 
Please send your hard to rehome dogs now. 
 
Would you like a box of magazines containing your featured hard to rehome dogs? It pays to advertise and if you leave some copies into your vets, Drs surgery, dentist you never know you might find Mr or Mrs Right for one of the dogs featured! We just need £10 to cover the courier and you can have a box while stocks last! (UK mainland only - other destinations on application) phone 01276 858880 during office hours or email jodie@dogstodaymagazine.co.uk to arrange.

There are three very simple steps to get a hard to home dog featured. 

1. We need a good photograph (about a 1MB when attached, in focus ideally!)

2. The answers to these really simple questions.   

3. A 100 word statement from the dog that makes people look twice.

Here are the questions:
Name of dog:
Type of dog and size if not obvious:
Approx age: (in years)
Sex:
Neutered?
Housetrained?
With other dogs?
With cats?
Good with children?
Location (County):
Contact details:
Foster or forever home?

Email all three of these elements to a new email address

jules@dogstodaymagazine.co.uk (retype this as copy and paste for some reason often will not work!) 

and put 'Adopt me' in the subject. 
Here's what a typical page of the the Adopt me feature looks like.


And here are some excellent 100 word statements to give you inspiration!


Hey I’m Shady! Will you throw my ball for me?
I’ve been in Rescue for over a year now which my carers say they are very surprised about. I love the company of people and get quite stressed if left on my own for long periods of time.
I’d love an owner with a lot of time on their hands; I’ll thank you with my devotion and wagging tail!
My new year’s resolution is to find a loving new home where I can play lots of games of fetch – could you help me make it come true?

I am the busiest dog in the world! I like to train, and play games, and love my obedience classes here in Leeds. I have lived with children with severe learning difficulties in a very busy house, and with another dog. I am much prettier than my photo, but I won’t keep still long enough for anyone to take one – I’m too busy seeing if the photographer has treats! I would love to live with an active family who like to get out and about as much as I do. You can watch videos of me training at the Iron Mountain website.

I’ve been at Battersea over a year – the Home never puts on a limit on how long it takes to rehome a cat or dog – and I’m a real favourite in the offices where I spend a day or two a week chilling out, being good-natured and friendly, well-mannered and very affectionate. For someone who looks like they ate all the pies, I’m actually a delicate and discerning eater – I once said no to a Bonio! Like my namesake Cleopatra, I am very beautiful, with carefully applied eyeliner, and would like to be building my own little homely kingdom soon.
 


And please spread this message far and wide!
