Christmas wish for paw old man
POOR Sandy the Labrador could be "bone alone" for Christmas if a new owner doesn't come forward.
The trouble is that his owner has died and, well, Sandy himself at the age of 12 and a half is getting on a bit even though he's good for his age.
Lesley Martin of the Labrador Rescue charity is currently providing a foster home in Hastings Road for Sandy, who was previously in kennels for six months with no one coming forward to provide him with a home.
"He is a very loving dog and just needs an older couple to look after him. For his age he is very sprightly," she said.
Sandy sleeps a lot of the time, doesn't need a lot of exercise, is very good in the car and would really like a large garden to mooch about in.
And loving as he is towards humans, Sandy doesn't get on with other dogs or cats!
If you would like to visit Sandy at his foster home please ring Lesley on 773983 (mobile 07890 527618).
