Canine Care Card brings sparky couple into centre

Many dog owners worry about where their canine companion would end up if the worse were to happen to them. Dogs Trust created the Canine Care Card for this very reason. The free service ensures peace of mind that if you were to pass away first, your dog would be cared for at one of our 17 rehoming centres around the UK and given the chance to find a new loving home.

We’ve just had two great friends, Rocket and Sparkle come into our Canterbury centre. Their owner had registered for the Canine Care Card and this meant we were on hand to care for them.

Rocket, a six year old male Labrador, and Sparkle, a four year old female Cavalier, are beautiful dogs that came in together after their owner sadly passed away and are looking to be rehomed as a pair.

They are looking for a home together as they’ve always been a pair and would like to be the only pets in the home so they can get all the fuss they deserve. They’ve had a troublesome few months so are looking for a quiet home where they won’t be left for longer than 3 hours so they can rebuild their confidence in a new environment. Any children in the home should be 14 years plus as they’ve been used to older, calmer owners in the past.

The youngest of the doggy duo, Sparkle loves being out and about and often gets into mischief! Rocket, the older gentleman prefers a calmer approach and loves to plod through the woods. Rocket is quite nervous of other dogs but once settled this can be worked on and managed. Both dogs would benefit from some basic training to keep their brains active.

Rocket is incredibly soppy and loves a calm walk in any weather. He enjoys treats and gets excited whenever he sees one in your hand. He is so affectionate and tries getting as much of himself on your lap as possible. Rocket is a little shy of new people but when he knows them, he greets them excitedly.

Sparkle is a real character. Her carers say she can be as mad as a hatter, but loves attention and a cuddle on your lap. Sparkle loves her walks and the minute you pick up her lead, she gets incredibly excited and is out of the door quicker than you could imagine! Sparkle is affectionate, loyal and adores Rocket.

If you think you could offer this lovely pair a home together, please contact our Canterbury Rehoming Centre on 01227 792 505 or visit them at: Radfall Road, Chestfield, Nr Whitstable, Kent, CT5 3ER.
