It’s also hoped that news of his artwork will spread and help Banksy find a home – with adults only.
Banksy came into the shelter’s care having been passed around a ‘few homes’ without finding someone to look after him forever.
Jodie Hayward, animal home manager at the centre, said: ‘Banksy is now looking for a consistent and patient home where he can settle.
INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Your dog is as smart as a two-year old! Ever wonder why children around this age seem to have a special bond with the family dog? It could be because they speak the same language, roughly 250 words and gestures in fact.
‘Banksy is a lovely dog with a cheeky personality.
‘He loves training and is very eager to please, but he can get a bit boisterous and mouthy when he feels unsure as to how he should behave in certain situations.
‘Banksy is a misunderstood dog with lots of potential, and we are sure that he will bring a great deal of joy to the right family.’
Yummy! Dogs have about 1,700 taste buds. Humans have approximately 9,000 and cats have around 473.
The dog’s ideal home will have no children, cats, or other dogs, and potential owners should be aware that he’ll need muzzling on walks.
But in return for some patience and love, you’d get a very special pal – and some great artwork for your home.So far, he’s created his very own version of Banksy’s famous Cat And Dog piece, using his nose and paws to spread the paint.
Jodie added: ‘Banksy really enjoys creating the artworks, it’s a great enrichment activity for him to do with his carers.
A Safe Place. Creating a safe place for your pet is crucial to its comfort. Make sure your pet has its own place of comfort where it can rest, relax and feel secure.
‘The brilliant thing about it is that every penny raised from his art will go towards helping, healing and homing the vulnerable animals in our care.’
