Unwanted pups deserving of a little love this Christmas
No matter how many times the old mantra "A dog is for life, not just for Christmas" is repeated, there are still some who refuse to heed it and instead treat their pet like a disposable toy.
Dogs are expensive to look after, given the cost of injections and food and the long-term commitment required. But the rewards are great, as any caring pet owner will testify.
The Assisi Animal Sanctuary is looking to re-home nine little pups - an unwanted litter left there. Any one of them would make a great Christmas present, but only for those willing to look after it for the rest of it days. Go on, be a dog's best friend this festive season.
