A BRIGHT and talented dog is looking for a new home to help him achieve his potential.

Luffy, a five-year-old Collie cross, has bags of energy and will need an active home with owners who can keep up with him, according to the Dogs Trust as they look to find him the perfect new home.

A Trust spokesman said: "Luffy is the complete package – not only is he a bright boy but is also very handsome and can win all the ladies over. Luffy is quick to learn and is a willing pupil who certainly has the “X Factor”.

"He would love learning some new tricks and would probably enjoy a doggy sport. Luffy can be vocal when he is out and about with other dogs, however will happily play with his doggy friends at the Rehoming Centre and could share his home with another dog.

"On meeting this handsome young man you will definitely think – 'we have just found our next superstar'."

Anyone interested in adopting Luffy can visit the Dogs Trust Darlington at Hill House Farm, Hill House Lane, Sadberge, near Darlington. The centre is open Thursday-Tuesday noon-4pm and closed on Wednesdays. To find out more visit dogstrust.org.uk
