An animal charity is hoping a nine-year-old German Shepherd will find her forever home in time for Christmas.
Due to certain health concerns, Mavis is seeking a permanent ‘twilight’ foster home where she can live the rest of her life surrounded by love but with the continued support of Warrington Animal Welfare (WAW).
WAW Administrator Lorraine Maudsley said: âThe lovely Mavis came into our care when her owner moved in and couldn’t take her with them.
âShe went to temporary foster care, where she settled down really well and they said he was a lovely dog, unfortunately they can’t give her a home forever.
âWe would really like to see Mavis in her foster family forever before Christmas.
âA house reserved for adults, where she is the only pet and receives a lot of company.
âUnfortunately, we realized that Mavis was having some health issues, and after being seen by the vet who diagnosed her with arthritis, for which she is now taking supplements and pain relief.
