VIDEO: Roger the dog sends an SOS

Have your say

Staff at RSPCA Sheffield are transmitting a vital message - they need a new home for Roger and they want for someone to reply with a 10-4.

Roger the Akita, aged eight, was brought to the centre due to welfare concerns after he was discovered isolated and in dire conditions. His teeth were in such a dreadful state that most of them had to be removed.

Acting animal care manager Tammy Wilson said: “Roger is a gorgeous, friendly fellow, full of life with a glorious, plush brindle and white coat and soulful eyes.
