Long-term lodger at Dogs Trust Salisbury finds forever home

A long-term lodger at Dogs Trust Salisbury has finally found their forever home after 600 days at the rehoming centre.

Seven-year-old Terrier cross, Bailey arrived at Newton Tony-based rehoming centre in September 2016 heavily pregnant and went into have seven healthy puppies.

All seven pups have now all found new homes, but staff at the centre were left baffled after Bailey was overlooked by thousands of potential adopters, who came through the doors.

Despite a staggering 600 days in the rehoming centre, Bailey is now embarking on a new chapter after being adopted by David and Ann Simpson, who had their heart set on the Terrier as soon as they saw her on the website.

David said: “We’re so excited to have Bailey in our family – she has definitely found her forever home with us. We’ve owned Terriers before and when we saw Bailey, we just knew we had to adopt her.”

Terry Laffin, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Salisbury, said: “We’re delighted that Bailey has found a loving family, although we were all really sad to see her go as she was such a cheeky girl. Bailey was with us a while, but we know she’ll be very happy with the Simpson family who tell us she is settling in really well.”

Dogs Trust Salisbury has rehomed almost 200 dogs so far this year. If you’re interested in helping any of their homeless hounds find their forever home, visit www.dogstrust.org.uk
