The Peterborough Telegraph is running regular spotlights on dogs that need new homes to support the work of animal charities in the Peterborough area.
The Peterborough and District Branch of the RSPCA do so much to rescue, nurture and subsequently rehome dogs in the area. They have continued to operate throughout lockdown and within a small radius are still permitted to rehome these animals.
Below are a selection of those that have been rescued and are in need of their forever home.
To find more details on each dog and to search for more rescue animals, visit www.rspca.org.uk/findapet/rehomeapet/process.
The RSPCA are funded entirely by public donations and receive no government money and therefore rely on the generosity of the public. Anyone wishing to support their work do so via www.rspca.org.uk/getinvolved/donate.
1. Coco - Rottweiler (5 years)
Coco is a medium to large girl who came into us via an inspector in May 2020, when she came in she was in need of medical treatment for both her skin and ears. While being with us Coco has come a long way and is now ready to find her forever home. Initially Coco was very nervous of new people and surroundings but during her time with us she has gained in confidence and come out of her shell, although she does still have moments where she can be unsure and will need space and reassurance. Coco loves her fuss and enjoys being the centre of attention
2. Lucky - Greyhound crossbreed (2 years
Lucky was found as a stray found wandering the streets with no home of his own. He was picked up by a local dog warden who brought him into our care. He is such a lovely friendly boy however does have a chase instinct which will mean he would need to be the only pet in the home and on walks he would have to be kept on the lead.
3. Skye - Staffordshire Bull Terrier (8 years)
Skye is a loving 8 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier looking for her forever home. She is a very sweet and affectionate girl who loves fuss and having lots of cuddles. Skye loves her walks and is generally good on the lead. She can be rective towards some dogs so will need a home that is happy to help her with this. She loves her toys so would love a home with a spacious garden for her to play in.
4. Pablo - Border Terrier crossbread (2 years)
Pablo is a fun-loving 2 year old, terrier cross looking for his forever home where he will be a loving part of the family. He is a sweet boy who loves to play and be active and enjoys with walks. Pablo likes to play so would love a home with a secure garden for him to explore and run around in. He does know some commands but would benefit from some basic training and also some socialisation around unfamiliar dogs.
