As Wimbledon fever grips the nation, Dogs Trust Manchester is hoping its very own set of doubles finds their love match.

Best friends Bella and Beth found themselves homeless after illness in the family meant this much loved pair could no longer be cared for.

Having lived together all their lives the seven-year-olds are perfect partners and follow in each other’s paw prints wherever they go. Now the team at the Denton centre are hoping dog-lovers will tear themselves away from watching the ups and downs of the tennis tournament and serve up an ace home for the doggie duo.

Dawn Bishop, Dogs Trust Manchester Rehoming Centre Manager, says:

“They are both very sweet natured and just like the best doubles tennis players they watch each other’s every move and know exactly what the other one is about to do! Bella in particular loves to play with a tennis ball but both have some arthritis and could do with losing a little bit of weight so, unlike sporting champions, gentle exercise rather than energetic work-outs is the training regime they currently need to follow.”

Airedale Bella and German Shepherd Beth are looking for a calm, quiet home where they can enjoy all the home comforts they deserve. They could live with sensible children aged over 14 who will respect their space.

Dawn says:

“They have been with us a few weeks now and we’re really hoping that they will be settled comfortably in their new home, snuggled up alongside their forever family in time to watch the Wimbledon champions lift their trophies.”

Bella and Beth will go to their new forever home under the charity’s Shared Adoption Scheme where charitable donations will support their medical treatment for the rest of their lives.

If you can provide the home Bella and Beth are looking for, please call 0300 303 0292 or visit them at Dogs Trust Manchester at Parkway, Denton, Manchester, M34 3SG. To find out more go to
