DEMAND for puppies soared during lockdown, but Dogs Trust Harefield is urging people to consider giving a golden oldie its perfect retirement home.

An OAP (Older Age Pooch) looking for somewhere to rest her paws is 11-year-old lurcher June (pictured).

Jo Lloyd, assistant manager at Harefield, said: “June has found coming back into kennels very difficult, so she is now spending time in a fantastic foster home while she awaits her special someone.

“Helping an older dog like June enjoy her autumnal years and giving her the chance to live her best life is incredibly rewarding.”
