Little sweetie Mary is as soft as a lamb – and looking for kindness in a loving new home.

Sheffield’s RSPCA animal centre is currently caring for the Staffordshire Bull Terrier who has suffered a ruff time.

She was brought to rescue workers following a welfare investigation which resulted in her being taken away from her old house.

She is still upset by sudden hand movements.

But now the brindle and white girl is looking for a fresh start.

With a clean bill of health and a laid-back nature, she and the RSPCA are hoping she’ll be snapped up soon.

Tony Benham, animal care manager at RSPCA Sheffield, said: “Mary was named by staff because of her sweet and soft nature.

“She is exceptionally cuddly and loves to be close to you, enjoying giving and receiving love. She is an active dog who likes her playtime and plenty of company, and she loves to play tuggy and with her tennis balls.

“However, gentle Mary can be particularly worried by sudden hand movements due to her sad past, and she will need sensitive handling while she re-establishes her confidence.

“She likes to avoid busy environments and would prefer a home with routine, peace and relative quiet.”
