Martin Skrtel helps Fur to find a new home

Martin SkrtelWe have been out again meeting old friends and new, once again thank you to Martin Škrtel for saying hello to our very own Fur Cotton who is still looking for her forever home after being with us for 12 months.

Furn a three year old cross Staffie is the longest resident at Merseyside Dogs Home and looking for a forever home.

She has been out to the New Mersey retail park raising funds to help all lost dogs across Merseyside. Pets at Home have contributed a new car to raffle with tickets costing £1 each, Paul Dunne manager at the home said “we are doing really well with the fundraising, thanks to pets at home” Martin Škrtel, a dog lover himself with two dogs, visited on Monday and made a return visit to meet Furn on Tuesday. Paul said “it was good to see support from Martin he took a shine to Fern, we hope she finds a new home soon”.

Fur Cotton might look like your average kennel dog but she has hidden depths, a good sense of fun and always keen to please she is our longest staying dog and we can't believe it. She has a fantastic foundation of basic training; we often take her out and about to Pickerings Pasture, Formby and Otterspool where she plays off lead with her toys and other dogs.

If an active, intelligent and easy to train dog would suit your family then this is the girl for you ... she can be excitable which is why we recommend only older, dog savvy children ten plus and she could live with another dog but likes to be in charge .. if you would like to meet her then please come and visit us on Greensbridge Lane, Halewood.
