A PAIR of homeless hounds rescued by charity SNDogs are looking for loving new homes.

Perfect pooches Mason and Alfie are currently living together in the town centre under the careful care of foster Claire Clarke while they wait to be rehomed.

Pyrenean Shepherd dog Mason is enjoying life in his first home surroundings, after a rough start on the streets of Romania.

Mason and his sister Violet were rescued by SNDogs but with Violet now rehomed, the loveable two-year-old is still on the hunt for his forever home.

When SNDogs took care of Mason two months ago, the dog was neglected and dirty with overgrown fur.

But thanks to a trip to the groomers and TLC from SNdogs, Mason has blossomed and is now ready to be adopted.

Claire Stephens, from the charity said Mason would settle in well to any household.

“Mason is a fantastic dog, he is very energetic and has a mischievous side. His favourite game at the moment is putting his paw in a bowl of water and spilling it on the floor, he is a character,” she said.

“It is his first time in a home so we’re working with him on being house trained and being on the lead, both of which he is responding well to.

Due to his size Mason is on the look-out for a home with children over the age of eight. He is also comfortable with other dogs.

“Unfortunately we can’t put him with cats as he may chase them,” said Clare.

Mason’s canine companion is beautiful brindle lurcher Flynn. The six-year-old has a relaxed temperament and enjoys chilling out on the sofa.

“Flynn is a very relaxed boy, he is happy sleeping on the sofa and he also loves being out and about for walks

“He likes living life in the slow lane, and he is happy to be left alone for a couple of hours. He is a very calm boy and will wag his tail to greet you. He will be a great companion for someone and he loves saying hello to other dogs on walks too.”

Flynn is comfortable with children and other dogs. Like Mason, he cannot be placed with cats or other small animals as he may chase them.

Formed in 2012, SNDogs was designed to save innocent animals from dog death row and helps stray and pound dogs in the town.

Their network has now expanded to include a pool of 15 pre-vetted foster carers who provide accommodation for dogs in need.

The charity covers all food, training and veterinary bills until a suitable forever home can be found for them.

Members of the charity, including Mason and Flynn, will be collecting donations outside the Highworth Co-Op this Saturday between 10am and 2pm.
