It’s Christmas. Will it be Bruno, Camelot or the Mystery Dog?

Three dogs and three sad tales with hopes for a happy ending...

This Christmas, Bruno, Camelot and the intriguing ‘Mystery Dog’ are melting the hearts of Ireland’s animal lovers. These ‘long term’ dogs have struggled through no fault of their own to find a Forever Home and are still patiently waiting for the right families.

Dogs Trust has invited people all over the country to help this Christmas by giving the gift of friendship by sponsoring  a dog as a gift for a loved one. They’ll become ‘paw-pals’ and will receive letters and updates from their new best friend throughout the year. It’s the Christmas gift that keeps on giving all year round! The sponsorship will ensure warm beds to sleep in, food to eat, walks and cuddles and medicine and vet care while these 3 dogs and others wait for their forever families.

So who will it be?

Bruno – The Small Terrier with a Huge Heart



Bruno is a terrific terrier with a huge heart.  He was completely heartbroken when his last owner passed away but bit by bit his heart is now on the mend. He is one of the golden oldies at Dogs Trust and his Canine Carers call him an ‘old gent with a soft soul’.  He’s a big foodie, full of life and is always sniffing out the next treat.

Camelot – The Happy Dog with A Sad Story



Camelot was a stray pup found totally alone with some serious veterinary issues. Behind the soulful brown eyes of this Pit Bull Cross is a very happy dog now who has received immense love from the team at Dogs Trust. Camelot is on a special diet as he suffers with a skin condition and he’s on a a special programme to help him overcome his fears as he is a nervous little fellow who finds some aspects of life overwhelming. Dogs Trust is determined to find Camelot a forever home and know that his perfect match is out there for him.
