HELP US MATCH SOME OF BATTERSEA’S RESIDENTS WITH THEIR PERFECT MATCH

Following the success of our Doggie Double gallery, we are working alongside Battersea Dogs & Cats Home to find some of their longest standing residents a human look-a-like and maybe even a forever home!

Do you know someone who looks just like one of these loveable pups?

We want to hear from you! All ten of our adorable pooches are looking for new homes and their #DoggieDouble and we need your help to find them.

Do you know someone with a smile as wide as Smokey? Do you have a friend with locks as golden as Alice? Maybe you even know someone who is looking for their new best friend! Simply tag your friend on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram galleries or send a picture of your friend with the name of the dog they resemble to doggiedouble@energypr.co.uk for the chance to be featured on the My Nametags social pages!

MEET THE DOGS

Alice

figure

  • Age: 4 years, 8 months
  • Living with children: I prefer to live with adults only
  • Breed: Mongrel
  • Living with dogs: I prefer to live alone
  • Sex: Female
  • Living with cats: I can't live with cats
  • Size: Medium
  • Ideal home location: I prefer to live in the countryside

Alice is a very intelligent girl who loves learning new things. She has an energetic and bouncy personality and the good looks to match. She is now on the search for a new home who can continue with the training Battersea has started.

Alice does have some insecurities and can be nervous of new people, so she will need an adult-only home with owners who have experience of similar issues. She will need sensible socialisation with other dogs as she hasn't been socialised much and needs to learn some doggy etiquette. New owners must be prepared to put in a lot of work with Alice and her training needs and understand that she will need long term and ongoing training.

Once bonded, Alice is a silly, bubbly girl who is very puppy-like in nature. She will be such a lovable companion and is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face. Alice is waiting for a new home at Battersea’s Brands Hatch centre, in Kent.

Smokey

figure

  • Age: 8 years, 8 months
  • Living with children: I prefer to live with adults only
  • Breed: Staff Bull
  • Living with dogs: I prefer to live alone
  • Sex: Male
  • Living with cats: I can't live with cats
  • Size: Medium
  • Ideal home location: I prefer to live away from the inner city

Smokey is a super chap who is looking for new owners who will give him time and help him to settle into his forever home. He has a very endearing character and has spent time in a foster home. Here he has shown to be a gentle and settled man around the house.

Smokey has a love of tennis balls and enjoys playing fetch, but he will tear them up! When he goes for a walk this proud Staffie often likes to hold a tennis ball and will happy trot along with it. Smokey sometimes likes to think he is a hippo and is often found wallowing in a paddling pool.

Smokey can be a little uncomfortable around some dogs, and will need owners who are happy for him to make canine friends in his own time. Once he relaxes, Smokey does enjoy a game with some dogs, but he will need to be the only pet in his new home. He is also worried by young children, so must live in an adult-only household.

He has some nice basic training in place and has the potential to learn more, he already knows SIT and both PAWS. Smokey loves to be with people and so is looking for owners who are around for the majority of the day to keep him company. Smokey really deserves his forever happy home, where he will reward you with so much love and affection.

If Smokey sounds like the dog for you, he’s waiting for you at Battersea’s Old Windsor centre.

Eddie & Serena

figure

  • Age: 4 years, 3 months
  • Living with children: We can live with teenagers
  • Breed: Greyhound
  • Living with dogs: We can live with other dogs
  • Sex: Male & Female
  • Living with cats: We can't live with cats
  • Size: Large
  • Ideal home location: We can live in just about any location

Serena and Eddie are looking for a home together, with owners who have some experience or understanding of ex-racing Greyhounds and their needs.

Eddie is a funny, affectionate boy who enjoys the company of both people and dogs. He has a healthy appetite and loves tasty treats. He is however likely to be a food thief so will need counters left clear and bins out of reach!

Serena is a bouncy, loving girl who loves nothing more than jumping up to give kisses. She's learning to keep all four paws on the floor, and enjoys leaning into people for a fuss and cuddle.

As ex-racers, Eddie and Serena will need new owners willing to take the time to help them transition to living in a home environment and undertake some basic training.

This sweet duo are fine examples of their breed. Their funny - and sometimes goofy - personalities will no doubt bring lots of joy and laughter to their new home. They’ve been looking for a home for over 100 days now, so they’re hoping someone will come to Battersea’s Old Windsor centre soon to take them home.

Sky

figure

  • Age: 7 years, 3 months
  • Living with children: I prefer to live with adults only
  • Breed: Staff Bull
  • Living with dogs: I prefer to live alone
  • Sex: Female
  • Living with cats: I can't live with cats
  • Size: Medium
  • Ideal home location: I prefer to live away from the inner city

At the age of seven years old, there is still lots of energy left in this girl, she loves charging around with tennis balls and ragga toys. At the end of a fun filled day, Sky loves to curl up with her favourite people, enjoying a well-deserved power nap before her next burst of enthusiasm.

Sky needs to live with experienced owners in an adult only home where she can really reach her full potential. Sky needs some ongoing work around other dogs, but she has shown great promise already so owners are sure to have a fun, yet rewarding experience training her. You’ll find Sky at Battersea’s London centre.

Toby

figure

  • Age: 4 years, 1 month
  • Living with children: I prefer to live with adults only
  • Breed: Bulgarian Shepherd
  • Living with dogs: I can live with other dogs
  • Sex: Male
  • Living with cats: I may be able to live with cats
  • Size: Large
  • Ideal home location: I’d prefer to live in the countryside

Handsome rugged Toby is a Karakachan, or Bulgarian Shepherd. Toby is an absolute sweetheart and a real gentle giant who is also a bit of a worry-wart. He has had a very happy life before coming to us, living with his older owner and her cats. However, it was a sheltered life and as a result, Toby can be easily overwhelmed by things that most of us take for granted in our day to day lives.

Toby will need an adult only household in a quiet location, and his new owners will need to have dealt with nervous rescue dogs before. He could live with a calm and confident female dog to help show him the ropes and maybe even a cat! If you think have the perfect home for this very special boy, please contact us today.

Diesel

figure

  • Age: 5 years, 5 months
  • Living with children: I prefer to live with adults only
  • Breed: Alaskan Malamute
  • Living with dogs: I prefer to live alone
  • Sex: Male
  • Living with cats: I can't live with cats
  • Size: Large
  • Ideal home location: I would prefer to live away from the inner city

Meet Diesel! A truly stunning example of his breed. Unfortunately, Diesel has been passed around a little bit during his life and came to be at Battersea’s Brands Hatch centre in Kent through no fault of his own. He is now looking for a calm and sensible family who are looking to share their home with this big fluffy bear.

Diesel is looking for new owners who have owned Malamute types before and can demonstrate a good understanding of their aloof and majestic natures. What you see is what you get with Diesel; as long as you appreciate and understand his breed and his needs, he should make a fairly low maintenance companion. If you have the time for long, countryside walks, a love for the Malamute breed and think you can give Diesel the forever home he so deserves, please get in touch. You’ll find Diesel at Battersea’s Brands Hatch centre.

THE DOGGY DOUBLE GALLERY

In partnership with Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, we launched the #DoggieDouble initiative - to create the UK’s largest gallery of pets who look like their owners!

We asked the public to share their 'Doggie Doubles' and 'Kitty Clones' with us on social media by using the hashtag #DoggieDouble

All pets, from dogs, cats and hamsters, to birds and fish... and even reptiles, were invited to join in the fun - the only rule is that they needed to be a dead ringer for their owner, or vice versa!

You can view a gallery for the entrants here.

ABOUT THE COMPETITION

My Nametags partnered with dotcomgiftshop.com to give away a bundle of goodies worth £100 to one lucky entrant!

WHY WAS THE DOGGIE DOUBLE INITIATIVE BEEN LAUNCHED?

We launched the initiative to show our support of the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home charity and the incredible work that the team there does for animals. The charity has taken care of more than three million animals since it launched in 1860. It now cares for over 7,000 animals every year. The core mission of the charity is to never turn away a dog or cat in need of help and we hope this fun initiative will remind people of the important work that the charity does.
