He’s huge, he’s furry and he’s looking for a family – meet Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s Loki, a Northern Inuit cross who’s ended up in an inner-city rescue through no fault of his own. Standing at over one metre high with piercing blue eyes and a thick grey coat to equip him for life in colder climates, this five-year-old giant looks like he’s just walked off the set of Game of Thrones.
Yet, despite his wolf-like appearance, Loki’s a gentle boy who loves people. Used to the outdoor life he’s finding his time in the London rescue centre kennels overwhelming, so the charity’s staff are hoping to get him out of Battersea and into a home as soon as possible. But they know they’ll have a challenge on their hands, as this gentle giant will need a home with experienced owners and plenty of outdoor space.
Battersea’s Rehoming and Welfare Manager Becky Fisher said: “We’re sure this stunning boy is going to attract a lot of attention, but Loki’s looking for a very particular type of home. He’ll need a house with a big garden where he can run around to his heart’s content. Ideally, we’d like to see him find a rural home away from the noise of the big city, as he finds the hustle and bustle of London kennels very stressful. Loki’s also going to need a home with people who are experienced with Husky, Akitas or Northern Inuit type breeds. But he’s a big softy – he loves people and could happily live with teenagers.” “We’re hoping someone with the space, time and experience will come forward to give Loki the home he deserves. He’s a beautiful natured, gentle dog and he’s going to make an amazing addition to the right family.”
