The Dog's Trust in Leeds never puts a healthy dog down. But they take dogs from the pound - where the animals are given seven days to find a rescue space.
With the recent arrival of Jingle and Bell, who were found abandoned in a quarry, the trust is full. That means they can't take dogs from the pound until someone rehomes one of their dogs.
The centre has seen 18 per cent fewer dogs rehomed this year and managers are appealing for suitable new owners to come forward.
