Steve said: “We have been to Dogs Trust Leeds a few times and we went along looking for a Bichon Frise puppy, but then we were introduced to Bonnie!

“She is absolutely marvellous, a gorgeous dog and we are delighted that we have been able to give her her forever home. She is settling in really well and bringing her home on New Years Day has already made 2019 very special.”

Amanda Sands, Dogs Trust Leeds Rehoming Centre Manager, said: “We are so pleased that Bonnie has found her forever home and got the new year off to a cracking start. We know she’ll be very happy with her new owners.

“We believe a dog is for life and we have lots of other pooches looking for a loving new owner to make 2019 a year to remember. So we hope anyone who would like to welcome a dog into their home this year, will choose to adopt and give a rescue dog a second chance of happiness with a loving family.”
