THESE cute canines from Cyprus are in desperate need of a new home - and a North Somerset dog fosterer is appealing for a kind-hearted person to step into the breach.

Sue Ashman, of Front Street in Churchill, and her friend Carole Dean up until recently ran a dog re-homing centre called The Alfie Fund in Cyprus.

They both decided to return to England but couldn’t bear to see Tess and Izzie, pictured, cooped up in kennels for the rest of their lives.

With the money left in The Alfie Fund they have paid for the two small pointer crosses to be flown back to the UK and are looking for someone to adopt the dogs.

Sue, aged 57, said: “Through no fault of their own Tess and Izzie have lived with three or four ex-pats but when the families have returned they did not bring the dogs back with them.

“They were put in kennels and if we had not decided to bring them back to England it is a certainty they would have remained there for the rest of their lives.”

The dogs, aged about seven, are being fostered by a woman in Cyprus and will return to the UK on November 21.

They have nice temperaments, are well-behaved and are very happy and healthy dogs.

Anyone interested in adopting them can email Sue at
