Dogs Trust Snetterton is appealing for a home for four of their long-staying hounds.

Vinne, Colleen, Joey and Ben have spent more than 1,700 days combined in kennels at the rehoming centre.

The average stay of many of the charity’s residents is 36 days.

Although the pooches receive lots of fuss and attention from the carers who adore them, nothing compares to finding a loving home of their own.

Diane McLelland-Taylor, Snetterton rehoming centre manager, said: “As much as staff are enjoying the presence of these loveable residents, we would love to see Ben, Joey, Colleen and Vinnie rehomed so they can enjoy their days with a loving family to call their own.

“These adorable canines have a lot of love to give – we’re appealing to dog lovers in Norfolk to give these ‘pawsome’ pooches a forever home.”

A lover of people and tasty treats, Labrador Vinnie is looking for a second chance at happiness, having spent 700 days in kennels.

The eight-year-old enjoys getting out and about for walks and is looking for a companion to go on adventures with.

Three-year-old Colleen has been dreaming of her new family for 400 nights.

Arriving as a stray, she hasn’t had the best start in life and is looking for a quiet yet active home where she can slowly build her confidence.

A collie cross she can be shy at first but loves a cuddle once she gets to know you. She loves to run and enjoys playing outside with footballs.

Fun-loving Joey is a devoted fan of squeaky toys, alternating between lazing around and playing like a puppy.

When not demonstrating his typical lurcher energy, this Saluki enjoys snoozing on a lap or enjoying a treat or two.

The two-year-old is looking for a home filled with life’s little doggy pleasures.

Crossbreed Ben is a sweet boy who loves a fuss once he gets to know you.

The four-year-old enjoys toys, treats and particularly his walks, as he needs plenty of mental and physical stimulation.

This lovely lad can become excitable in busy environments so a peaceful home is essential.

If you can offer Joey, Ben, Vinnie and Colleen a new start and home, call the team at Dogs Trust Snetterton on 0300 303 0292 or click here
