Thandie is pup's best friend

Thandie is pup's best friend
By Rachel Sharp

BAFTA award winning actress Thandie Newton turned up at Dogs Trust West London Rehoming Centre this week, to rehome an unwanted puppy.
Crossbreed, Maggie, arrived at the rehoming centre in Harefield with the rest of her litter after her owner was unable to look after them.
The actress said: "Maggie is just adorable and we instantly fell in love with her. We can't wait for her to become part of the family.
"I am so pleased that we are rehoming a puppy from Dogs Trust and would encourage anyone else who is considering giving a dog a home to visit the charity and help an abandoned or stray dog feel loved again."
The West London Rehoming Centre is also extremely pleased that such a high profile actress is helping to raise awareness for the charity. Rehoming centre manager, Richard Moore said: "We are, of course, extremely pleased that Thandie has been able to rehome one of our puppies. Finding loving homes for all our dogs is our priority and I'm sure Maggie will be a much-loved family pet."
Dogs Trust is the UK's largest dog welfare charity, caring for more than 15,000 stray or abandoned dogs every year through its network of 17 rehoming centres across the UK. The charity believes that no healthy dog should ever be destroyed and works towards the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.
