VIDEO: Sheffield terrier socks needs her perfect match

Have your say

Socks should come in pairs – but one lovely lady cannot seem to find her matching partner in Sheffield.

Socks, a Staffordshire terrier, has been through some spins and tumbles and hung out to dry.

The RSPCA Sheffield branch is seeking a new home for Socks.

The RSPCA Sheffield branch is seeking a new home for Socks.

However, now RSPCA Sheffield Branch has rescued her and she is ready to find her forever home.

Tammy Wilson, branch acting animal care manager, said: “Socks is a sweet, loving Staffy who is only aged about three, so she has lots of life and enthusiasm in her to start life afresh with a new owner or family.

“This affectionate tan and white lady came to us due to welfare issues, but is now rehabilitated and ready for a new home.

“Super-bright and eager to please, she needs an owner who can bring some fun back into her life and teach her how to play with toys.

“Sadly, we suspect she hasn’t had many opportunities to do this in the past.”

“Ideally, we are looking for a home where Socks is the only pet while she builds up her confidence and social skills around other dogs.”

If the new home has children, youngsters over the age of 10 are preferable, or a sensible eight-year-old who can calmly contribute to Socks’ training and care.
