Leeds pooches in search of the limelight

Dog-lovers are being urged to roll out the red carpet for two pups in need of new homes.

Named after Golden Globe nominees, brothers Al Paw-cino and Mark Woof-alo and their sisters Alicia Lick-ander and Cate Blanch-sit, were just one day old when they arrived at the Dogs Trust Leeds rehoming centre having been rejected by their Border Terrier mum.

Since then the ‘paw-some’ foursome have been hand reared in a foster home.

The female pups have secured a new home but their brothers have so far failed to steal the limelight.

As the stars of the big screen prepare for this year’s Golden Globes on Sunday, staff at Dogs Trust Leeds hope the puppies will not have to wait too long to find a home.

Dogs Trust home from home adviser, Amy Ripley, who arranged foster care for the pups, said: “They are all absolutely delightful but unfortunately Al and Mark are definitely playing supporting roles to their sisters at the moment.

“Alicia and Cate are due to head off to their forever homes next week and we would love it if the boys could be offered a starring role in a new home too.”

Dogs Trust is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and cares for almost 17,000 dogs each year through its network of 20 rehoming centres across the UK and one in Dublin.

Anyone interested in rehoming Al or Mark, or other homeless hounds at Dogs Trust Leeds, can call the centre on 0300 303 0292 or visit www.dogstrust.org.uk.
