Staff at Dogs Trust in Glasgow are appealing to dog loving rugby fans to “try” and help find homes for a litter of four-legged rugby fans.

The rehoming centre in Uddingston is keen to spur on the national team during the Rugby World Cup so they have named a bouncy scrummage of seven adorable puppies after their Scottish heroes.

The six week old staffie cross pups, are looking to win their perfect match in loving homes. They are only six weeks old so can be reserved but will need to stay on the bench until they reach eight weeks.

Staff have named the furry four-legged line up: Stuart Dog( Hogg), Finn Jack Russell, Richie and Jonny Greyhound (Gray) Greig Laidpaw, Tim Vizsla (Visser) and Stuart Mcinpuppy.

While they may not be heading to Murrayfield this autumn, the playful pups can’t resist bounding after a ball and are all looking to win their perfect match in sport-loving homes.

These fun-loving pooches are desperate to find new homes where they can play endless games of chase. They were born at Dogs Trust Glasgow after their mum was handed in when her owner was no longer able to care for her and are now looking to go to loving new homes. They are especially looking forward to cheering on Scotland from a comfy sofa with families of their own.

Sandra Lawton, Dogs Trust Glasgow Rehoming Centre Manager, said: “These mischievous little pups are full of energy so will need active owners with a strong throw to keep them entertained. They are still very young and, like any Rugby team, would benefit from a little extra training. The team requires active homes with owners who appreciate the demands of young puppies and are at home most of the day to help them settle in. They would need homes with secure gardens to bound around in and would, of course, love a rugby ball to play with. They are fantastic and they would make the perfect pets in the right homes with committed owners who appreciate a dog is for life not just for the World Cup.”
