A dog described as a gentle giant is in need of a new home after a month in RSPCA kennels in Sheffield.
The Rotweiller-Mastiff cross, named Kevin, is said to ‘crave attention and affection from everyone he meets’.
Staff and volunteers caring for him at the RSPCA’s animal centre in Attercliffe said he is well behaved and placid.
They are seeking a new home for the dog as part of the ‘Give a Dog a Home campaign,’ backed by The Star, which is aimed at reducing the number of dogs in RSPCA kennels in the city.
An RSPCA spokesman said: “Kevin is a fantastic boy who is looking for a super special new home.
“He is a gentle giant, and Kevin loves bouncing about in our compound and then enjoying cuddles after he has tired himself out.
“He is a well behaved boy, and, for such a chunky lad, can curl up surprisingly small to try and convince you he is a lapdog.
“Kevin is okay with other dogs he meets out on a walk although would prefer a home as the only dog, so he can enjoy all the attention he craves.
“Although he is a big lad Kevin is generally very placid and so may be suitable to live with children aged eight and above as long as they are calm and sensible around him.
“This handsome softy is craving a warm fire and a family once again.”
