Dog lovers looking for a new best friend will be happy to learn there are dozens up for adoption in Darlington this Halloween.

Dogs Trust Darlington have plenty of rescue dogs looking for a forever home this month.

We have compiled a list of seven canines hoping to bring some light into their new owner's lives.

Lexi - Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross

The Northern Echo:

This lovely girl is a favourite at the centre and is looking for her forever home with the right family.

The centre have recommended an adult-only home who will carry out her training.

Lexi will need to be the only pooch in the home but can have quiet walking friends that will respect her personal space. 

A fan of the quiet life and walks, she also loves going on adventures away from home and would love owners who are just as adventurous.

Loki - Husky

The Northern Echo:

A sweet, sensitive boy who has had a difficult start in life, Loki's desperate to find the right family for him.

He would be best suited to an adult-only home with no visiting children as he requires quite a lot of guidance and time.

Adding to this, he will need to be the only pet in the home but can have dog walking friends to build up his social skills.

Like most Huskies, Loki needs a lot of exercise and mental stimulation and is a very playful boy.

He loves company from his people so will need someone around for him all the time.

If you believe you are the right fit for this mischievous canine, the centre would be interested in hearing from you.

Flynn - Border Collie

The Northern Echo:

This lad is looking for a quiet, adult-only home to settle into.

Flynn is a sensitive soul who is lacking in confidence with handling and other dogs.

His new family will be asked to visit Flynn a few times before he packs his yellow bag to help build up a budding friendship.

Olive - Jack Russell cross

The Northern Echo:

Olive is a senior dog seeking a quieter household and can live children aged 16 and older.

She adores being with people and can be introduced gradually once she has adjusted to her new pad.

A home with a garden would be ideal for Olive where she can enjoy some off lead time. 

 Olive can have walking pals but the centre has recommended she be the only pooch in the home.

Heath - Pug cross

The Northern Echo:

This lad is on the lookout for a forever home and can live with another canine who matches his energy.

He is currently working on his housetraining in his foster home, and will need this continued at home.

He isn't shy around food and is constantly on the lookout for his next meal. You can definitely motivate this lad with good grub.

Obi - Cocker Spaniel cross

The Northern Echo:

He has separation anxiety which our training team will be on hand to assist with.

The centre said Obi can inhabit a home with another pooch pending a successful introduction.
