This week's Pet of the Week, from Borders Pet Rescue, is Pal.

The charity told us: "Pal is a Jack Russell cross who has been in our care for nine months now.

"At five years old Pal has sadly had a few homes before coming in to our care and has spent too much time in rescues. He is just looking for his forever home to have no other pets and no children so he can get the attention he needs.

"He is very lively, especially when it comes to walks, and lets you know by showing off how vocal he can be. "Pal has had some basic training and this would need work but his recall seems to be pretty good. He is eager to please and just loves a treat so training him shouldn’t be too difficult.

"Pal is after an active home where he can receive the stimulation he needs, after all he is full of energy.

"If you would like to offer Pal his forever home, please email for an application."
