Meet Troy, the six year old Mastiff Crossbreed who has travelled all the way from Blackpool in the hope of settling in Sheffield.
Troy first went in to the RSPCA several months ago as part of an animal cruelty case, but after being cared for by kind-hearted staff at the centre.
Adam Spencer, of RSPCA Sheffield, said: “His past has left him with a few mental scars, but once you have built a bond with this incredible fella, you really get to see his true character.”
He described Troy, who is a brindle colour, as a ‘giant soppy pup’.
He enjoys a good run around followed by lots of love and cuddles. He can be rather full on and strong to handle when out walking, so he is looking for a home experienced with large breed dogs who are able to help him develop skills and build confidence.
He needs to live in a home where any children are over 14-years-old, and with owners who will understand his needs and will be able to play a big part in his training. He does not seem to know his own strength at times, especially when he is being silly. Living with a family who are used to big, bouncy dogs would be ideal for him
Adam added: “This brilliant brindle boy has had an awful time and he’s looking for a fresh start in a home with people who can love and adore him and can give him the care he needs. Is he the dog for you?”
