We're big dog lovers here at Lovin Dublin and we thought we'd brighten up your Saturday by sharing some insanely cute dogs that are up for adoption right now up at Dogs Trust

The guys up there do such unbelievable work and at the moment they have over 180 dogs that are awaiting rehoming. 

As you can see they come in all shapes and sizes, but this is a WAY better option than buying designer dogs from puppy farms where the animals are usually imported and often mistreated.

Look at their little faces. Time to give them a forever home...

1. Cooper Red (Spaniel: English Cocker)

Cooper is a stunning looking boy who can't wait to find his forever loving family. His fave activities include long walks to new places where he can expore interesting smells. 

Not only is he handsome, but he's also very intelligent and already knows commands like 'sit', 'stay', 'fetch' and 'find'. 

Type of home needed:

Cooper is fine when meeting dogs out and about, but he loves to be the centre of attention. He would be the happiest boy in the world if he is the only king of the castle! This sensitive soul is worried by kids and for this reason he would be best to live with an adult only family.

3. George (Lab Cross)

Gorgeous George is as bright as he is handsome. Not just a pretty face, this guy has brains to burn and needs an active family with a keen interest in doggy sports - such as agility. 

He's a physical fella and would love a super outdoorsy family to take him on plenty of outdoor adventures. 

Type of home needed:

George needs an adult only home who don't have too many visitors as it takes George a bit of time to get to know you. When you do become acquainted, you'll have a friend for life that'll stick to you like glue. He gets on well with other dogs and is often overlooked as he lives back of house where he prefers a bit of peace and quiet.

4. Guy (Terrier: Pit Bull)

Gorgeous Guy loves getting wrapped up in his duvet and can often be seen in all manner of hilarious positions in his kennel. 

Type of home needed:

Guy can take a little bit of time to get to know. Despite being such a big boy, he's super shy until he gets to know you. Agile and active, he'll need a super secure garden and lots of exercise.

5. Maisie (Collie)

Maisie is a beautiful and intelligent lady. She's an active girl who loves her daily walks and activities. Her fave game is playing fetch with a tennis ball and messing around with her carers. She likes to make new friends on her walks out and about but can get a lil worried when unfamiliar people or other dogs get too close. 

Type of home needed:

Maisie will make a wonderful addition to an active adult family, where she is going to be the only one dog in the house. Maisie can meet other dogs during her daily walks but cannot live with them. Maisie has huge potential and so much to offer. She should make a perfect agility/ flyball dog and a loyal companion.

6. Bruno (A Crossbreed)

"My story is quite a sad one. I lost my family some time ago under very sad circumstances. I really did love them but I had to say goodbye. I was quite confused and frightened but I know there's someone special out there for me. Could it be you?"

Type of home needed:

Bruno likes other dogs but needs a very quiet, adult only home. He's been in homes before but struggled to settle and it's really important that his new family spend time with him so that they can see what a sweet, gentle and loving little soul he is.

7. Bailey (A Crossbreed)

Bailey came to us with her bext friend Roxie whom she loves to bits. 

She is the happiest girl in the world when she can play outdoors with her Roxie. She's affectionate and loves the company of adults and children alike. She's also great with most dogs and enjoys long walks. 

Type of home needed:

Bailey is a girl with a big heart and she cannot wait to find her loving forever home. She would make a perfect addition to a family who is looking for more than one canine friend. Bailey can live with young children who are at least 5 years old. Bailey is a loving lady who is beautiful inside out. She is a girl with high potential who will thrive in a right environment. This amazing canine will make some lucky family very happy.

8. Bran Collie (Collie)

Bran is a total foodie - much like ourselves. He loves his grub so getting to know him shouldn't take long. He seeks affection and attention, but prefers a hands off approach. He's happiest snuggling at your side rather than being petted and fussed. 

Type of home needed:

Bran needs an adult home, preferably one that's familiar with Collies and their kooky ways. He's adorably handsome and a firm favourite with the staff here so if you're looking for a gentleman to stick to your side like glue, Bran could be the one for you.

9. Arabella (Lurcher)

Arabella is an excitable, fun-loving dog who cannot wait to have her forever home. She loves people and gets very attached to them. She also loves fuss and attention (don't we all). This sensible soul find it difficult when left alone and needs some help to build up alone time gradually. 

Type of home needed:

Arabella will make a wonderful family dog! She should be more than happy to share her future family with another social dog, but she will be also delighted to be the only Quinn of the castle! Arabella can live with kids at least 5 years old, she should make a great companion for a sensible, gentle kids.

10. Markievicz (Beagle)

This gal really loves free runs with doggy pals. She loves her toys and her faves are teddy bears. 

Type of home needed:

Markievicz will need a quiet home as she finds loud noises a little over whelming and gets quite worried. She will need another dog in the home to help her gain confidence and a family with older kids or adult. Also, she will need a family who will be willing to do some training with her to help her gain more confidence.
