Timid dog rescued in cruelty case ready for a new home

Have your say

A dog rescued by the RSPCA as part of an animal cruelty case is now ready to be re-homed.

Four-year-old Petunia was among a number of animals taken in at the RSPCA’s animal centre in Attercliffe as part of an investigation into animal cruelty.

She arrived at the centre in August 2013 but has not yet been found a new home.

RSPCA staff and volunteers said the tan and white cross-breed is a ‘fabulous lady’ who is ‘loving, affectionate and a pleasure to be around’.

An RSPCA spokeswoman said: “Petunia is a fabulous lady who is looking for a loving new home.

“She was brought to us with numerous other animals as part of a cruelty investigation but is now signed over and looking for a loving new home.

“Petunia can be quite a shy lady with people she is unfamiliar with but when she knows you she is loving, affectionate and a pleasure to be around.

“Petunia has always been used to the company of other dogs, and although she appears okay with out and about, would prefer a home as the only pet, where she can have all the attention to herself.

“Because of her timid nature we would prefer to find a home for Petunia with children over the age of 13 who will better understand her needs and nature.

“Please could you her a loving new home?”
