Pokemon pups would bring a tear to a glass eye

Two abandoned Staffordshire Bull terrier puppies have been named after popular Pokemon characters after they were handed into the Dogs Trust Glasgow.

The charity has launched an appeal to find homes for seven-week-old boys Pikachu and Jigglypuff in the hope that a loving owner will come forward.

The two pups are firm favourites with staff and have been enjoying plenty of fun and games at the rehoming centre.

Staff have been introducing the playful duo to lots of sights and smells, as they help them master what it takes to make a perfect family pet.

Sandra Lawton, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Glasgow, said: “Our Pokemon puppies are such little bundles of energy – they really do keep us on our toes especially when we’ve got to catch them all after playtime. They would make wonderful additions to Pokemon-mad families who can spend time playing lots of games with their new best friends. They might even be able to take part in a spot of Pokemon Go on their daily walkies!”

“As the puppies are still so young, they are looking for new owners who can spend time continuing their training and socialisation. They can live with young children and would suit an active home with patient owners who can keep up with their playful nature! There’s no better team for our puppies than a loving family of their own.

“They are such cheeky and affectionate little characters and I hope they can soon claim their rightful place as four-legged members of a devoted family.”
