A footie-mad dog called Gunner is hoping to score a new home with a family of Arsenal fans, after being relegated from a Premier League prized pet to a homeless underdog.
Gunner is a three to five
year old Rottweiler at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home Brands Hatch who
loves playing with his football, and has skills to rival Robin van
Persie. While he hasn’t quite mastered the volley, he’s already showing
high promise with a nifty ‘sit’ and ‘paw’, and is a pro dribbler.
moved into Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s Kent-based site in January,
after his owner was unable to keep him. Any family who are a man down
and are looking to boost their team would be lucky to have Gunner, as
he’s a friendly and social boy, who loves being around new people.
Brands Hatch’s Rehoming & Welfare Assistant Tanya Madden explains:
“Gunner would love to live with a family of football fans, especially if
he could chill out with them and watch the big games on TV. As he’s a
Gunner we can imagine him suiting Arsenal fans, but he’s a bit of a fair
weather fan and would happily switch his allegiance to another team. He
can live with teenage children, so I’m sure he’d enjoy going along to
watch them have a kick-about or cheer on the local team on a Saturday.”
is now living the top-flight lifestyle in a foster home to give him a
break from kennels, and enjoys long walks, tasty meals and a constant
supply of cuddles.
Tanya adds: “Gunner does have a bit of a
worried side to him but he is a real champion and he’s very popular here
at Battersea. Gunner isn’t fussed by scoring a wonder goal or
perfecting his tiki-taka, he just wants to find a new home.”
