It’s rescue dog Fudd’s New Year’s resolution to find his forever home in 2015 with a new loving owner that he can call his own.
The gorgeous one-year-old white Staffy has lots of love and affection to give, but it would appear a hearing problem he has is causing him to be passed over by potential adopters.
Acting animal care manager for the RSPCA Sheffield branch, Tammy Wilson says despite being deaf Fudd can still live life to the full.
“Fudd is a fantastic boy who is looking for that extra special new home,” said Tammy. “He was born deaf so he needs that little bit more tender loving care, time and patience with his training.
“That said, he is very smart, eager to please and has already learned some of his basic commands in the short time he has been here at the centre and we know he will be quick to learn more.
“Generally dogs do watch our hand signals for instructions and our faces for emotions – so in many ways friendly boy Fudd is not at a disadvantage.”
According to Tammy, Fudd seems to get on with other dogs that he has met so a home with other well balanced dogs may be a strong possibility for him, subject to a meet and greet with them at the RSPCA centre.
