Meet Winston, a ‘big softie’ who is looking for a family with a big heart to give him a new forever home in the city.
He was taken in to the RSPCA in Sheffield almost two months ago by an inspector who had concerns about his welfare.
Adam Spencer of RSPCA Sheffield said he was in a ‘sorry state’ and very frightened, but has gradually built up the courage to approach staff and make friends.
The three-year-old white and black crossbreed can still become scared by unfamiliar noises, but he is learning to enjoy the world around him.
Adam added: “This sweet boy is looking for an experienced, quiet, adult only home with people who can offer him a stable routine and all the love he needs to heal. He’s a big softie.
“Despite all that he has been through he still can give his whole heart to those who invest a little time and energy into him.
“He is already a different dog to the one who came to us, but he is hoping for a more permanent arrangement and a family to give him the love, care and stability he needs.”
Anybody who is interested in taking Winston home may have to visit the centre a few times first so he can get to know them and build up trust. It would be ideal for the person to live close to the RSPCA centre to enable the staff to offer further support. He seems to like other calm, patient dogs so it may be possible for him to share his home with another canine.
If you can offer Winston what he needs, call 0114 289 8050 or call into the RSPCA offices, two Stadium Way.
