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.
5. Sansey- Saluki (12 years)
This stunning sighthound is Sansey! She arrived into our care through no fault her own and is ready to find her new home and family. Sansey is our special senior here and is looking for a special retirement home. A quiet adult only home that can let Sansey take her time to settle in and enjoy some home comforts if just what she is looking for. Sansey can be shy meeting new people and she needs a little space at first, but after a short walk with her she will certainly warm to you and show you her sweet nature. She is such a gentle, calm and loving dog. Once you have made friends she loves for you to sit with her and give her lots of strokes, she is such a sweet girl who deserves the best home. Out on walks she is calm, relaxed and slow paced, she doesn’t pull on the lead as she is so interested in sniffing everything. Around dogs, she has a few select friends, she could socialize with well matched dogs in the family however she would want to be the only dog in the home.
6. Cookie- Husky crossbreed (2 years)
Cookie is a lovely 18 month old Husky cross American Bulldog looking for her forever home. She is a sweet girl who loves lots of fuss and affection and has been gaining more confidence around people.

She may benefit from some continuous training and socialising around both people and dogs. Cookie likes to be active and enjoys her walks. She likes to play with her toys so is looking for a home with a spacious garden which she can explore and play in. Cookie is looking for an active adult only home or with children over the age of 16 years who are familiar with large breeds. She would be best as the only dog in the home and is not suited to living with cats or small furries. Cookie can be left but is looking for a home where she will be with people most of the time.
7. Reggie- Lurcher crossbreed (6 years)
This is Reggie! He came into our care through no fault of his own. It didn’t take us long to get to know him here as he is confident with new people and loves affection from anyone and everyone! Reggie is typical of his breed, where he has short lively moments with plenty of zoomies which are entertaining to watch. He loves all toys and choosing his favourite from a toy box! Reggie has been in a foster home where we learnt more about him. In the home he is a laidback character and very calm, an ideal dog for someone looking for a companion to relax with around the home, he is a proper sofa dog and loves cuddles and your attention. He is such a loving dog, and a favourite with the staff as he gives the best cuddles! Toilet training wasn’t an issue either, he picked it up quickly. He is also great with children from 12 years old. He is a superstar at the vets, having any treatments and jabs, being bathed and brushed or having his feet wiped. Reggie's knows sit and down and also walks well on the lead.
