The nearby centre has honed its virtual rehoming process throughout the pandemic, which it says has proved very successful in uniting pets and people.

A few of the Dogs Trust dogs have been waiting a bit longer for their paw-fect humans, so they’ve got top billing on our list below.

Buster

The Dog’s Trust knows dogs, and they know that actually you can teach an old dog new tricks.

In fact this is the best way to bond with 10-year-old Buster – a bright spark who enjoys learning in exchange for yummy treats.

The sweet Staffordshire Cross hasn’t had the easiest time in life so far, so he’s looking for patient adopters without children or other pets to afford him the quality time he deserves. Read more about Buster’s requirements here.

Isla

Isla is a lovely but worried girl searching for kind owners to help her find her paws.

She’s after a quiet home with an enclosed garden, away from the barks of other dogs and busy sounds.

A two to five-year-old Dobermann, there’s plenty of training scope for clever Isla, and yummy treats are the surest way to her heart. She’s been at the centre since April, so needs some love soon. Check out her needs here.

Radley

What a delight to have this guy bounding over to you!

This blue-eyed Siberian Husky boy is sure to start plenty of conversations on your walks!

Radley is a charming and clever dog, aged over 8, who loves being around people.

He is finding kennel life quite difficult, the Trust say, and needs some patient adopters who can let him settle at his own pace.

An enclosed garden, exclusive pet status, and adults or children over 12 are his new home ideals – which you can read more about here.

Tim is a sweet young Lab Cross who is ready to leave the Snetterton Centre.

At 18 months old, he is bursting with potential and looking for adopters with an interest in reward-based training to help teach him some basics and build his confidence.

He is a friendly boy who loves being around people and will need a present family who can be mates for life. An adult-only home is needed, due to his nervous nature.

Find out more about rehoming the lovely Tim here.

Nala

A young Lurcher, aged six to 12 months, Nala is also full of beans and scouting for a patient person who can help her grow into the best dog she can be.

She is after active adopters who enjoy their walks and can take her on lots of interesting and varied routes (of which Cambridgeshire has plenty!)

The Trust adds that she will need a little help building her confidence and trusting people so gentle, calm souls are sought.

Her new family will need to be home most of the time to help her settle, after which she would benefit from some socialisation with calm dogs. If you fit the bill, find out more here.

Ben

When he’s not busy being a ball of energy, Collie Cross Ben loves having a fuss and a cuddle.

A little training would go a long way with this one to two-year-old chap, and you’ll need to match his strength on the lead.

If you have children who are aged 12 or older and used to bouncy dogs he could be the dog for them too. He’ll need to be your one and only – find out why here.
