A LIVELY dog called Buster is in need of a new home after his previous owners had to give him up.

The one-year-old Jack Russell/Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross would suit a family keen on walking, with children aged over ten.

"He's okay with little ones, but he's very boisterous so slightly older children would probably be better," said Pauline Wilson, from the National Animal Sanctuaries Support League.

"But he's an absolutely lovely dog, a real character who gets on with other dogs and who has been fully vaccinated. Ideally, his new owner would be someone who is at home for part of the day and someone who likes walking. Buster will be a pleasure to take out."

Anyone willing to give Buster a home is asked to call (01325) 321855 or 07748 268822.
