Temporary home needed for two very special dogs

Editor's Viewpoint

Dogs are often referred to as man's - or woman's - best friend, and certainly the two giant Newfoundlands owned by Co Down woman Janette Nelson proved that old adage correct.

Alerted by a loud noise at the back of her Carrowdore home last Friday night, they pounced on her as she slept on her sofa and that saved her life. Arsonists had set fire to her home but she was able to gather up her three children and - aided by neighbours - escape from the blaze. Now she is seeking temporary accommodation for the two dogs as she cannot bring them to her emergency residence. Surely there must be a home out there for these canine heroes.
