Monday mornings can be hard, especially for people who hate their job. Last year a study revealed that an incredible 6.5 million people in the UK class themselves as unhappy at work.
Georgina Lowery is not one of them.
A Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Merseyside, Georgina has worked for Dogs Trust for 18 years. She says a wagging tail and a cuddle from one of the centre’s longest serving residents, who she spends extra time with every day, is all the reward she needs.
Georgina takes ten year-old Max for an early morning walk and play, whether she is in work or on a day off, before most of the other dogs have left the comfort of their beds.
“Max is a very sensitive boy and can be a bit wary around other dogs so I take him for a quiet early walk which is a wonderful start to the day for us both. Seeing him happy and relaxed out walking, playing with his toys, and having cuddles before breakfast is so rewarding.
“He has the best smile and his waggy tail greeting me every morning makes me feel more appreciated than any gift could ever do,” says Georgina.
Max was originally adopted from Dogs Trust Merseyside six years ago but found himself back at the Rehoming Centre after his owner sadly became ill.
“Max was in a loving home for so long and although I enjoy our morning routine as much as Max does, nothing would make me happier than seeing him head off to a forever home. He deserves to spend his twilight years surrounded by a loving family once more and with a comfy sofa to snuggle on,” Georgina added.
Max is looking for a home without children or other pets and with patient owners who will let him take his time to build a bond. Once he has, he will be a loving, loyal companion.
If you think you could offer Max, or any of the dogs at Dogs Trust Merseyside their forever home, you can visit the centre at Whiston Lane, Huyton, L36 6HP. You can also call 0300 303 0292 or go to www.dogstrust.org.uk to find out about all the dogs waiting for their forever homes.
