Milo needs a home in the city

This 11-year-old crossbreed came into the care of the RSPCA last October due to welfare concerns. He spent a couple of months at another branch before coming to South Yorkshire to continue his search for a forever home. RSPCA Sheffield spokesman Adam Spencer said: “This sweet boy adores toy play and we are currently teaching him ‘swapsies’ to show him how to play both interactively and politely, as he finds it a bit tough to share.

“He is is a quick learner, he is very intelligent and once he knows you, he thoroughly enjoys human company.

“This lovely lad is amazing but is better suited to a home with adults and older teens, where someone will be around most of the time. “He is looking to be the only dog in the home as he needs some training and socialisation to improve his manners around other canines.

“Milo will happily walk with quiet, calm dogs, but can be a little unsure around big bouncy dogs.

“He suffers with some mild skin issues, which cause him to be itchy at times, but he is being kept happy and comfortable with some special shampoo from our vet. “This adorable little boy can`t wait to find his perfect home with people who will cherish him. Could you give this boy the home he has been dreaming of?”

Based in Attercliffe, the Sheffield Animal Centre is RSPCA Sheffield's rehabilitation and rehoming centre which operates animal intakes, viewing and adoption. Potential adopters are invited to view the animals available for adoption during viewing times.

The centre, which costs over £2,000 a day to operate, is also completely self-funded. Although it receives some support from the national RSPCA, it receives no government or local authority funding, meaning most of its funds are raised locally by a team of volunteers.
