Furry mother and son duo seek new home together

A FURRY mother and son duo at Dogs Trust Newbury are seeking a nurturing home together, following fast on the heels of Mothering Sunday (March 6).

Five-year-old Lola and her three-year-old son, Oddball, arrived at the Hamstead Marshall rehoming centre last month and have been winning over the staff with their sweet natured personalities ever since, but have yet to find their perfect home.

The inseparable pair are devoted to one another and staff hoping a dog lover with room in their hearts for two homeless hounds will offer the little family a permanent spot in loving home.

Dogs Trust Newbury Rehoming Centre Manager Nicki Barrow said:

"It’s not often we see a mother and son duo looking for a home together but Lola and Oddball are like 'two pups in a pod' so we really want to make sure we find a home for them together.

They are such sweet characters and we know they will settle into their new home well with their devoted family member by their side."

Rehoming a pair of dogs, she said, could be incredibly rewarding:

“We're appealing to anyone who thinks that they can offer them a home together to please get in touch – it’s a case of double the dog, but double the love."

If you think you could offer this mother and son duo a happy home, 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 please visit
