STAFF at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe have a double whammy of deeply devoted doggy duos on their hands.

This special double sized ‘Dogs of the Week’ presents two pairs of best buddies that are totally inseparable and need new homes together.

Labradors Kingston and Honey are firm friends who have always lived together and 12-year-old border collie cross siblings Mirtha and Marcus have been joined at the hip since birth.

Kingston is aged 11, a male chocolate lab who is a little overweight and is losing a few pounds on a new eating and fitness regime. His best friend, Honey, is a 10-year-old Labrador who adores playing with toys and going for walks.

Mirtha is looking for a retirement home with her brother, Marcus. They have lived together all their life, but their previous owner sadly passed away. They enjoy lots of fuss and snuggling up together.

“It’s always a little harder to find pairs new homes but it would be difficult not to fall in love with these adorable duos,” said centre manager Pam Stow.

“Kingston and Honey are very sociable and friendly and would be a wonderful addition to any family. They could live with other dogs and with older children.

“Mirtha and Marcus are an affectionate pair who love nothing more than pottering about on walks or snuggling up for a snooze, Mitha in particular adores playing ball.”

If you are interested in rehoming either pair, call the Ilfracombe Rehoming Centre on 01271 812709. It is open every day between 12 noon and 4pm except Wednesday when open from 4.30pm until 7.30pm.
