Ancient remains of dogs found from 8,000 years ago suggest that we have always been a nation, moreover a world, of dog lovers.

The remains were found wearing decorative collars and even sacred objects and now anthropologists believe that ancient dog owners valued their dogs both in life and in death. 

Dogs Trust are delighted by these findings. Dog ownership can be so rewarding and the bond with man's best friend should be celebrated. Even those dog lovers who lived 8,000 years ago knew that! Back to 2016, there are so many benefits to owning a dog, ranging from health to companionship. 

Dogs can bring such joy to the lives of their owners and in particular, bringing a rescue dog into your home is hugely rewarding as you’re offering a dog a much needed second chance at happiness. Visit www.dogstrust.org.uk for more information. 

Hurray for dogs!
