The Charity is doing so to highlight the rescue dogs that come through the re-homing centre in Finglas.

DogsTrust says it has sent over nine thousand furry friends to new homes since the centre opened it's doors in 2009.

Almost eight hundred were adopted last year alone, Terriers and Lurchers were the most popular breeds.

They have released this video, with the line "I have sheltered you, can you shelter me?". It's one that tugs at your heartstrings.

 

Adopting a dog is good for the human too!

Mr. Saul adopted his pooch from DogsTrust, a Lab cross called Maggie.

When her owner had difficulty breathing, Maggie sprung into action!

She barked at the rest of her family, who called an ambulance.

Her owner Frank had a short stay in hospital but he has made a full recovery.

How to adopt a dog from DogsTrust?

Their website has a re-homing section that explains in a couple of steps how it works.

They say it takes, on average, eight days from a meeting to adoption.

It costs €160 but the dog is healthy, microchipped and neutered.

LOOK at his beautiful face!!! This is Bueller. Don’t let his size fool you, this big softie is very shy. Once he trusts you, he loves fuss and attention. Now that he’s settled in a bit in our Rehoming Centre, we are starting to see a very playful dog slowly emerging and he’s started to really enjoy playing with toys. As Bueller is a sensitive soul who can be worried by loud noises or sudden movements, he is looking for a quiet, adult only home with a large, enclosed garden where he can potter about and play. He would need to be the only dog in the family. Beuller really needs kind, gentle adopters who will keep him company during the day and understand that it will take him a while to come out of his shell. #AdoptDontShop #ADogIsForLife 🐾 #rottweiler

Karla Dunne is the Head of Operations at DogsTrust.

She says, "our Rehoming Centre isn’t a substitute for a loving home. Our dogs might not win ‘best in show’, but they will win your heart."

"Rescue dogs are amazing and thoroughly deserve a second chance in life."

There are currently 170 dogs and puppies in the re-homing centre, waiting for their forever homes.
