NEW LEASE OF LIFE: Cheryl Coburn with Dexter
A DOG lover is urging people to give a home to an abandoned pet.
Cheryl Coburn, of Godman Road, in Chadwell, has found a whole new lease of life after taking in an abandoned puppy earlier this year.
The pup, named Dexter, was one of a litter of 10 puppies, which have been found to be a mix of Rottweiler, American Bulldog and Boxer.
They were found in a box by a member of the public and taken to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home at the age of three weeks in January.
Cheryl met Dexter while visiting the famous charity to look for a pet.
She said: “I instantly fell in love with Dexter so I was really pleased that we got to take him home. Battersea Dogs and Cats Home did a great job looking after Dexter and we’re glad to continue looking after him.”
Cheryl and Dexter recently attended a reunion with his siblings and their new owners at the animal rescue charity’s centre in Old Windsor.
She added: “I think they must have recognised each other and after a little sniff they were really friendly with each other. I was so glad to take part in the open day and get the chance to see them all together.”
Cheryl is appealing for anyone who is thinking of getting a pet to consider the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home or similar rescue centres.
