Eight American Bulldog puppies have had a “furry-tail” ending in time for this weekend’s Manchester Pride celebrations.
The staff at Dogs Trust Manchester had been looking to re-home the pups which were born at the centre eight weeks ago.
Having found homes, Charming and Cinders, Eric and Ariel, Aladdin and Jasmine and Prince and Princess will all be safely starting their new lives by the time staff march in Saturday’s parade for the first time.
They decided to name the litter in keeping with this year’s Pride theme of ‘Once Upon a Time’.
“We are so excited about taking part in the parade for the first time and the fact that we know all our pups are going to be settling in in their forever homes as the floats make their way through the city is wonderful,” centre manager Dawn Bishop said.
“The pups were born just a few days after the mum arrived at the centre. They are a beautiful litter and we are absolutely delighted but not surprised people have fallen in love with them.”
Manchester Pride is an annual LGBT pride festival and parade held each summer and is one of the longest running in the country, attracting thousands of visitors to the city’s gay village, Canal Street, each year.
