Dogs Trust to host a fun day

Jimmy is a one- year-old Border Collie looking for an active home with experienced adult owners. He's a real foodie and loves delicious dog treats, which will come in handy with Jimmy's training in his new home as he loves learning new tricks. Jimmy can be initially shy when meeting new people but he grows in confidence each day. Potential owners would need to visit Jimmy a few times to build a relationship. Once he has got to know you he's a loving and loyal companion. Visit Dogs Trust Ballymena, 60 Teeshan Road, Ballymena, Co Antrim, BT43 5PN or call the centre on 028 2565 2977. www.dogstrust.org.uk
