This amazing young chap was brought to RSPCA Sheffield in December last year and, sadly, his past has left him with a few mental scars.

The one-year-old Staffi Bull Terrier was brought to the centre as part of a cruelty investigation.

RSPCA Sheffield spokesman Adam Spencer said: “Crackerjack really deserves a fantastic new home with someone who will help him to build his trust in humans and life after the troubles of his previous circumstances.

“All that is now behind him and it is our job to look to the future and to find this lovely boy a family who will love, nurture and adore him. He is a little wary of new people at first, but once he knows you, he is loyal, loving and affectionate and he will give you his whole heart.

“Crackerjack would be better suited to a home with adults over 16 years of age, who will be happy to dedicate time to training our boy so that he can be a brave, confident chap who can enjoy his life to the full. We don`t know if he has spent much time outdoors as he finds simple things like grass both interesting and also a little scary. We have been spending time at the centre gently desensitising him to new environments as well as doing gentle handling exercises.”
