RSPCA seeks new homes for dogs in Sheffield kennels

Have your say

A ‘loving and gentle’ dog in RSPCA kennels in Sheffield is in need of a new home.

Scooby, a Staffy-Bull Terrier cross, has been offered emergency accommodation at the RSPCA’s animal centre in Attercliffe since arriving last month.

The six-year-old, with no health issues, is said to enjoy being around people and playing with toys.

The RSPCA is trying to find him new owners as part of The Star-backed ‘Give A Dog A Home’ campaign, aimed at finding more new homes for abandoned and neglected dogs and those whose owners can no longer care for them.

A spokesman for the animal charity said: “Scooby is a fantastic boy who is on the lookout for an equally fantastic home.

“He is a loving and gentle boy generally and enjoys being around people playing, especially if there are toys involved.

“He does occasionally have his mad moments, but these are all part of his charm and character.”

He said Scooby is used to living with other dogs.

“Scooby has previously lived with dogs, and does appear friendly to those he meets so a home with another dog for company may be a possibility, pending a successful meet and greet at the centre,” he added.

“Due to his occasionally excitable nature, we would prefer a home for Scooby with children over the age of 11 who better understand his needs and nature.”

Visits to meet Scooby or the other dogs seeking new homes can be arranged at the RSPCA animal centre on Stadium Way, Attercliffe, between 12.30pm and 3.30pm daily.
