SIX stray dogs who were on death row have been given new homes in time for Christmas.

Missy, Mia, Max, Spike, and two other dogs, were snapped up from Flushdyke Boarding Kennels following an appeal in last week’s Express.

The stray or abandoned dogs were at risk of being put down if they could not urgently find new owners.

Some of them had been staying at the kennels for several weeks and they are only supposed to be there for a week at most.

Kennels worker Olivia Brewer said: “All of the dogs were taken which we’re really pleased with because they had been in for quite a long time.”

Two other dogs have become available at the kennels this week.

A tan-coloured female mongrel who was rescued after being dragged from a canal also needs a new owner.

And there is also a female Staffordshire bull terrier, which is white and brindle in colour, needing a home.

The kennels, on Wakefield Road, Ossett, also take donations of food, bedding, toys and treats.

Donations of money help to get dogs treated or vaccinated, and could even allow the kennels to keep strays for longer.
