Cork home needed for courageous Collie

Petrified of people, Polo, a three-year-old Collie was found straying alone in West Cork, with a frayed rope tied around his neck. He was two at the time, but his fear of people at such a young age indicates that he didn’t have the best start in life.  
Currently in our care, Polo is seeking a foster, or forever home in Cork where he can look forward to a happier future. Through our Regional Rehoming Programme, we can rescue and rehome vulnerable dogs locally, through the wonderful support of foster families in the area. This means dogs can go straight into a loving home environment until they find their forever family.

In order to help as many dogs receive the second chance they deserve, we are urgently appealing for foster homes in your area that can commit to taking in a dog temporarily.

Speaking about Polo, Eimear Cassidy, Regional Rehoming Manager at Dogs Trust Ireland said “Dogs like Polo are the reason why we knew we needed to expand our operations more locally across the country. His fear of people is gradually improving, and through patience and love he is learning that he doesn’t need to be afraid anymore.

Polo loves dogs, and he’s most confident in the company of another dog who will help him settle into a home environment. We would love to find him a foster home who could help continue Polo’s journey to recovery, but we are in desperate need of dog-lovers to offer their homes to foster. If you are in a position to help, please get in touch with our team.”

Our Regional Rehoming Programme aims to rescue and rehome dogs locally so that more dogs can benefit from a loving foster home environment while we search for their forever home. This cannot be done without you, so if you can offer your home temporarily to foster a dog in need, then please contact us today on [email protected].
