Staff at Dogs Trust in Bridgend have named a litter of homeless Staffordshire bull terrier cross puppies after their Welsh rugby heroes ahead of tomorrow’s big Six Nations clash with England.  

Staff at Dogs Trust Bridgend are appealing to dog loving rugby fans to “try” and help find homes for a litter of four-legged rugby fans.

Puppy ruck.The rehoming centre is keen to spur on the Welsh national team for Saturday’s Six Nations game against England so have named a bouncy scrummage of six adorable Staffie cross puppies after their Welsh heroes. The playful nine week old pups have been named Sam Pawburton, Leigh Halfstaffie, Dan Waggar, Toby Furletau, Gethin Puppykins and Alex Ruffbert.

The team was brought into Dogs Trust Bridgend with their parents, who were handed in as their owners were no longer able to care for them.

While they may not be selected as forwards, props or scrum halves for the next match, one thing they do have in common is the desire to find their perfect match in a sport-loving home.  

Centre manager Beverley Price said: “These mischievous little pups are full of energy so will need active owners with a strong throw to keep them entertained. They are only nine weeks old and like any rugby team would benefit from a little extra training.

“The team requires active homes with owners who appreciate the demands of young puppies and are at home most of the day to help them settle in. They would need homes with secure gardens to bound around in and would of course love a rugby ball to play with. They are super little dogs who would make the perfect pets in the right homes.”

Anyone interested in offering any of the team a new home should call Dogs Trust Bridgend on 01656 725 219 or visit
