DAVE the friendly ‘mini wolf’ dog is looking for a forever home after having his ear sliced off.

The rescue dog was saved by Cumnock’s Islay Dog centre after being abused in Romania.

Despite his tragic background Dave is still hopeful he can find a loving home so he doesn’t spend his life in the shelter.

The ‘little wolf’ also still loves people even though they haven’t always been kind to him.

He is very affectionate and gets on with most other animals.

Dave could live with children eight and over after meeting the family first.

If you would like to meet either of Dave please call Lorraine on 07876561545 and she can arrange an appointment for you.
