After Hollywood rolled out the red carpet for the Oscars yesterday, Dogs Trust Newbury is asking dog lovers to offer a starring role to one of its coveted canines.

Nominations include: Best Actor in a leading role – Henry, a nine-year-old spaniel cross.

Henry is a distinguished gent who is looking for a home where he can spend his twilight years away from the spotlight.

He can be worried when meeting new people but with a little patience, he will soon become a fast friend.

Henry would like new owners to visit him a few times to build up a bond before he is ready to be the star of the show in his own home. He is looking for a calm, adult home with no other pets so he can have the limelight to himself.

Up for Best Supporting Actors are Bailey and Rocky, 12 year old, beagle and terrier pals.

Playing each other’s partners-in-crime, the pair would love to live the life of luxury in Beverley Hills but would be just as happy in a home in Berkshire, as long as there is a spare sofa or a comfy, warm bed waiting for them at the end of the day.

Nominated for Best Actress, is Trisha, a five-year-old greyhound.

Elegant Trisha has the grace of an old Hollywood icon and is now hoping she can win the heart of an adoring owner.

Trisha is a sociable girl who loves to stay active. After a long walk, she loves nothing more than to relax and curl up on the sofa or comfy bed and watch her favourite movies. A typical leading lady, Trish loves to have her owner’s attention to herself so would like to be the only pet in the home.

If you think you could roll out the red carpet to your home for any of these stars, please get in touch with Dogs Trust Newbury on 0300 303 0292 or visit the centre at Plumb’s Farm, Hamstead Marshall, Newbury, Berks, RG20 0HR.

Dogs Trust is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and has a network of 20 Rehoming Centres in the UK and one in Dublin. The charity cares nearly 17,000 stray, unwanted and abandoned dogs each year. For more information visit www.dogstrust.org.uk.

    Why would anyone wanting a dog go anywhere else for one? We have had 5 dogs from Dogs Trust with only one having to go back as unsuitable. I can recommend this place to everyone looking for a dog.
