A stunning white dog with an unlucky past is desperately looking for a family to come and scoop him up. Solomon the six-year-old crossbreed has a shy personality but once he opens up to you, he has a heart of gold.

The good boy arrived at Dogs Trust Shrewsbury in the summer after a change in his owner's circumstances meant he could no longer stay with them. Manager Louise Campbell told the Mirror: "Soloman is a shy boy so will need to meet his adopters a few times before heading home, but once he has built a bond with you he is very loving.

"He has bags of potential and with the right support he will fulfil his potential and make a wonderful canine companion."

Solomon took a while to settle at the centre but is now showing his true personality and loves a long walk around the fields where he can explore and sniff to his heart's content.

He has his paws crossed for an adult only home where he is the only dog, but he can meet up with doggie pals when he's out and about.

His owners will need to continue his training, which the centre team will support with, but if you have tasty treats to hand, he's a willing learner.

Solomon doesn't like to be left on his own so leaving hours will need to be built up gradually.

Dogs Trust, the UK's largest dog welfare charity, cares for around 14,000 dogs of all ages, shapes and sizes every year at its 22 rehoming centres.

But 2022 was an exceptional year with the charity receiving a record number of calls from people having to face the heart-breaking decision to hand over their dog.

The charity is urging people to remember that 'A dog is for life, not just for Christmas' and is hoping that if people are considering welcoming a dog into their lives, they choose to adopt a homeless hound.

Operations director Adam Clowes says: "We will make sure that every dog in our care has a wonderful Christmas but unfortunately due to the increasing costs of everyday living, many dog owners are currently having to make very difficult decisions when it comes to caring for their dog.

"Our kennels are at capacity and we are concerned that as fewer people can afford to welcome a dog into their life, we will face a housing crisis for dogs in the coming months, which is a tragedy for both dogs and owners.

"We understand the pressures people are facing but we would encourage anyone that is looking for a four-legged friend to share their life with, to consider adopting one of our gorgeous dogs and give a dog in need another chance to be happy at the heart of a loving home."
