Dog of the week: Wyatt the Collie is looking for a family that can help him blossom

Dublin Live has teamed up with Dogs Trust in Finglas to bring you "Dog of the week".

We love animals here at Dublin Live, so we've teamed up with our friends over at Dogs Trust in Finglas to try and find a forever home for their most adorable pooches.

Starting today, we're going to be bringing you Dublin Live and Dogs Trust "Dog of the week".

This week we're featuring adorable Wyatt, who is a one-year-old Collie, and a lovely, sensitive soul. He'll need patient and committed owners who can give him the time and space he needs to blossom.

Kerri from Dogs Trust told Dublin Live: "Wyatt is a wonderful 1 year old male Collie who has his whole life ahead of him.

"When Wyatt first arrived at the centre he was quite scared, so it took him a long time to trust his carers.

"Our experienced team have been working on his confidence and now we can safely say that all the effort paid off and Wyatt is finally ready to start a new chapter of his life.

"Wyatt is still very sensitive and it will take him time to relax in different environments, but he is making steady progress every day.

"Wyatt relies on and learns so much from other happy and confident dogs, so he will need to have another dog in his future home.

"Wyatt could potentially live with gentle teenagers who have lived with shy and anxious dogs in the past and know that not every dog enjoys cuddles and boisterous play. Wyatt is a sweet boy who really hopes he will finally find a home he can call his own."

If you have room in your heart for Wyatt or any other dog who is looking for their forever home, then please contact Dogs Trust on 01 879 1000.

They are based in Finglas, just off exit 5 on the M50. Map and directions can be found on their website www.dogstrust.ie .
