Dog of the week – Ailsa

GERMAN shepherd cross Ailsa is a larger-than-life character who has become a firm favourite with her carers.

But the five-year-old needs a permanent home and would make a wonderful companion.

Ailsa is a bit tubby but loves to bound around

Ailsa gets on well with others dogs, so would happily live with one, along with children as young as eight.

Tracey Rae, rehoming centre manager at Dogs Trust Shoreham, said: “She’s a really friendly lady and has impeccable manners.

“She is a little tubby, so her carers have set a strict diet to help her lose a few pounds and a gentle exercise regime that her owners would need to continue.”
