AN eleven stone dog who was handed into Dogs Trust Evesham for growing too big for the garden has found a new home with big hearted owners with an equally large garden.

Staff launched an appeal to rehome three-year-old crossbreed, Remus, and appealed to dog lovers to come forward to offer the gentle giant a new home.

He has now landed on his paws with Mandy and Tom Stuart and their son Matt from Tewkesbury who are lucky enough to have a large, secure garden for Remus to play in, as well as being surrounded by large fields to explore in.

Mrs Stuart said: “We’re so excited to welcome Remus into our home and he’s definitely found his forever home with us. He is a lovely boy who has a large personality and heart to match his size. He has already made himself comfortable and has made friends with our horses. We can’t wait to give him a really happy life.”

Tracey Spiers, rehoming centre assistant manager at Dogs Trust Evesham, said: “All of the staff at the centre are delighted that Remus has found the perfect owners. He is a big boy who needs lots of space to be able to exercise in so it’s great to see that Remus is going to live with a new family who can give him what he needs. We’re sure he’ll be really happy there.”

There are many dogs at Dogs Trust Evesham who are waiting for the perfect home. For more information call 0300 3030292 or visit the rehoming centre at 89 Pitchers Hill, Wickhamford, Evesham, WR11 7RT.
