Rosie, who is a six-year-old Staffi Bull Terrier, is being looked after by RSPCA Sheffield, but is looking for a new home.

Rosie, who is a six-year-old Staffi Bull Terrier, was taken in to the RSPCA Centre in Sheffield at the end of last year after her previous owner died.

After a few months of care from staff there she is ready to find a new owner to love.

Adam Spencer, of RSPCA Sheffield, said: “This girl was so sad and upset when she arrived, it took some extra special TLC from her carers to make her feel relaxed and comfortable.”

Rosie was found to have a a painful torn ligament in her right hind leg, which staff are still providing treatment for.

For that reason, she would initially need a foster carer to look after her while the treatment continues.

Adam said: “She is on a strict diet and exercise plan, along with pain management to try and help get her back on her feet again. However, we think

that she would lose weight and be much happier in a home environment so we are looking for a home where she would be placed on a foster basis first whilst we work on her strict diet and whilst her leg heals."

Rosie would need to live in a quiet home where she is the only pet because she prefers to have her owner's attention and her toys and food to herself.

Adam said: “Rosie`s biggest comforts are her favourite people. Although the staff here work hard to keep her as happy as possible, we can`t offer her the amount of one to one time she is used to and craves.

“She is a wonderful, affectionate dog who just wants to be someone`s best friend and companion.”
