The staff at Dogs Trust Manchester are celebrating after eight puppies born at the centre found their very own ‘furry-tail’ ending in time for this weekend’s Pride celebrations.

Eight American Bulldog pups have been looking for new homes after being born at the centre eight weeks ago, and after their dream became a reality as Manchester’s Pride week hit, staff at the centre in Denton decided to name the litter in keeping with this year’s Pride theme of ‘Once Upon a Time’.

Having found homes, Charming and Cinders, Eric and Ariel, Aladdin and Jasmine and Prince and Princess will all be safely starting their new lives by the time staff march in Saturday’s parade for the first time.

Dogs Trust Manchester Rehoming Centre Manager, Dawn Bishop says: “We are so excited about taking part in the Parade for the first time and the fact that we know all our pups are going to be settling in in their forever homes as the floats make their way through the city, is wonderful.

“The pups were born just a few days after the mum arrived at the centre. They are a beautiful litter and we are absolutely delighted but not surprised people have fallen in love with them!”

Dawn adds: “Our bright yellow, four tonne 3.2 meter high Dogcilla will definitely stand out in Saturday’s Parade and we hope that as a result, lots of dog-lovers will come and visit us and give some of our beautiful dogs the second chance they deserve.”
