Friday 13th may be unlucky for some - but Joey the dog is hoping today will bring him some luck, in the form of a new home.

The two-year-old homeless hound is currently being cared for by staff at the Dogs Trust rehoming centre in Snetterton, where he has been given plenty of love and attention.

But nothing compares to a permanent home - and after seeing plenty of his furry counterparts find loving homes, the sweet Saluki is desperate to find a new base.

Diane McLelland-Taylor, rehoming centre manager at Dogs Trust Snetterton, said: “Despite the superstition that this day brings bad luck, we’re really hoping potential adopters will put any superstitions to one side and consider rehoming our lovely boy.

“With it being Joey’s second Friday 13th with us, we’re hoping it’s second time lucky for him. Not only will you be offering a four-legged friend a happy home, but you will be gaining a new family member. We don’t see what’s so unlucky about that!”

Described by staff as “friendly and fond of food”, fun-loving Joey is a devoted fan of squeaky toys.

Choosing to alternate between lazing around and playing like a puppy, when he’s not demonstrating his typical Lurcher energy this sweet Saluki enjoys snoozing on a lap or enjoying a treat or two.

Keen to soak up attention, all-rounder Joey can live with children aged 10 or older, although he would like to be the only pet in the home.
