Up to 70 dogs are cared for at Snetterton rehoming centre at any one time. Right now, five particular dogs are really struggling to find loving, long-term homes, being constantly overlooked by visitors, with one still living there more than four years after arriving. Could you help find families for these long-term residents?
Bonnie came to Dogs Trust Snetterton from the Kenilworth rehoming centre in August 2016, where she had been since September 2012 due to her dislike of other dogs. Between games of frisbee and football, Bonnie loves to make sand angels in the sandpit, pick up a new trick or two, (such as giving high fives) and she also enjoys travelling in the car. She is looking for a quiet, adult-only home where she is the only pet and has plenty of space to play. Bonnie is best suited to a rural environment with quiet areas for walking, and owners who are around most of the time while she settles in and establishes a bond with them.

This loveable Scotsman was found as a stray in southwest Scotland and has been at Snetterton since April 2016. Despite his sad past Kobi is very generous with his affection and has been dubbed, 'the king of cuddles'. Extremely popular with everyone, this goofy guy enjoys exploring and is in need of a relaxed, quiet home with snuggles on tap. He may not be used to the home environment, so he could require some training, however, his unrivalled passion for food means he is easy to train and would love to keep learning with you. Kobi is enthusiastic and can be strong on a lead, therefore it is recommended that any children in the home should be aged 14 or above.
Breed: German Shepherd Cross
Vinnie was brought in to Dogs Trust Snetterton back in October 2015 due to his former owner's poor health, but he came from a loving home in which he resided with two tiny Chihuahuas. The large lad loves football and is quick to learn new tricks – especially when rewarded with treats. Positive reward-based training is currently helping him to improve his socialisation skills, and he is very loyal and cuddly with his beloved human companions. Ideally Vinnie would like a calm and quiet home with those who have experience with his breed and can continue to support his socialisation training. In a pet-free home, Vinnie will flourish into a faithful and friendly member of the household.
Jensen was handed over to the rehoming centre as a stray in March 2014 but his carers quickly discovered he is a super-smart, fast learning and active boy who is fully house-trained. Jenson is looking to learn new skills, such as swapping his much-loved teddies for treats, and is very loving and affectionate towards those he trusts, once reassured, he is a playful and cuddly companion. The ideal home for this gentlemanly giant would be an adult-only residence where he can have a stable routine with adopters who can continue his training. Visitors can initially be stressful for him, so a quiet home with few guests would be perfect.
Mojito was found wandering as a stray and brought to Dogs Trust Snetterton in July 2016 in a bid to give him the family he longs for. He is a devoted fan of squeaky toys and loves to alternate between lazing around and playing like a puppy. Marvellous 'Mojo' is a friendly and sweet boy who is suitable for families with children over the age of 10. He requires socialisation with other dogs and is best as the only pet in the home for now.
