Flynn is one of 24 very special rescue dogs who are in search of a new home – not just for Christmas, but for life.
Leeds rescue dogs: meet the Hugo staff who are up for adoption this Christmas
The Yorkshire Evening Post has teamed up with Good Life Dog Rescue for the 24 Dogs of Christmas campaign, which aims to match each of the dogs with loving new owners and showcase the work of this small Leeds charity.
Today, with the support of
The Positive Puppy Trainer, we share the story of Flynn who needs a new family.
Flynn is new to our charity from a local roaming kennel.
He is full of fun and energy and absolutely adorable.
Flynn is a happy dog and will need a lot of exercise.
He loves his walks in the woods and his recreation.
He gained confidence when he arrived with us a week ago and now he enjoys the attention and almost twists in half for an interaction.
Flynn will suit an active outdoor human who can match their energy and love of the outdoor lifestyle.
One can imagine Flynn going on hiking vacations and coastal trips with an active couple who love adventure as much as he does.
Flynn is very happy and although he may be a bit strong in the lead, he is now responding well to the leads.
He’s eager to please, and he’s learned that shooting isn’t the solution and won’t get him anywhere quickly.
An adopter willing to continue with lead counseling would be a good match.
Flynn is so loving and needs to find a home as soon as he is neutered.
What is the Good Life Dog Rescue?
Good Life Dog Rescue is a small charity based here in Leeds that cares about the welfare of stray dogs in the UK.
Its founder, Victoria Bastow, is passionate about helping animals who often face uncertain futures. For over eight years now she has been dedicated to helping stray and abandoned dogs in Yorkshire.
The charity carries the colors of the Staffies and Cross Staffies, who are often the last to find a place of rescue.
He receives no immediate funding and survives on donations and fundraising, with no paid staff and only his volunteers hired to defend the stray dogs he rescues.
Victoria herself has a full-time job so that she can partially fund the huge kennel and vet bills incurred.
As the association does not have its own kennel, all dogs in its care are taken care of in South Yorkshire kennels.
Kennels are truly a temporary home and Good Life aims to give each of the dogs a fresh start with loving owners as soon as possible.
Many stray kennels, rescue and placement centers across the UK are full of adorable, active and healthy adoptable dogs just waiting for someone to love them and provide them with a home.
It is important that the right dog is matched with the right person or family.
In order to find the right dog for its future owners, Good Life will need to match their lifestyle with the dog.
All dogs taken in charge by the association are vaccinated, microchipped and sterilized. Home checks are required and veterinary references if possible.
