SIX stray dogs are at risk of being put down this Christmas if they cannot find new homes.
An American bulldog called Missy, a Staffordshire bull terrier called Mia, and two Japanese akitas, Max and Spike, urgently need new homes.
A male English bull terrier and female mastiff are also desperately in need.
The stray or abandoned dogs are staying at Flushdyke Boarding Kennels, where some of them have been for several weeks.
Kennel manager Samantha Gray-Cowan said: “We’re only supposed to keep them for seven days so it’s really urgent that people come forward. They are lovely dogs and there’s a risk they could be put down if they’re not moved on within a few days.”
Some of the larger dogs would need experienced owners without children.
The kennels, on Wakefield Road, Ossett, also take donations of food, bedding, toys and treats. Donations of money helps to get dogs treated or vaccinated, and could even allow the kennels to keep them for longer.
