PEOPLE-loving Kerry is looking patiently for a new home.

The bubbly, well-behaved, button-nosed beauty, who was named after RSPCA Sheffield’s animal care assistant Kerry Grayson, is desperate to join a family or become someone’s special canine companion.

RSPCA Sheffield Branch Animal Care Manager Tony Benham said: “Kerry came to our centre as part of a cruelty investigation, and this cute lady is now ready to be rehomed.

“This delightful dog has been waiting patiently since December to join a happy family or to become someone’s much-loved companion, and you can tell by her face and her soulful eyes how much she wants that second chance in life to be loved and love.

“She’s bubbly, steady and absolutely loves people.”

Kerry is a four-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Akita cross. Tony said: “She has no known health or behavioural problems.

“She has a gorgeous brindle and white coat that is velvet to the touch, and she adores nothing more than a cuddle and stroke.

“Kerry would best suit a reasonably active home with robust and sensible children, preferably over the age of 10.

“She also seems to get on with dogs here at our centre so we have no reason to think she wouldn’t get on with another canine companion.

“Being an active dog, she will need a minimum of at least three long walks a day.

“This loving lass would make a great, fun addition to any home. She just needs that chance to be able to show her marvellous manners and great qualities and why she’d fit well into most family environments.”

Would-be adopters are urged to visit the centre for a ‘meet and greet’ with Kerry and any of the other animals waiting for new homes.

“The Woodbourn tram stop is right near our centre,” said Tony. “Or, if you are driving, just keep an eye out for the big pink paw prints that make up our sign once you reach Woodbourn Road. We are open every day from 12.30pm to 3.30pm except Wednesdays but including Sundays.”
