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. Maya- Bichon Frise crossbreed (2 years)
Maya is a lovely 18 month old Maltese cross Bichon Frise looking for her forever home. She is a sweet girl that will make a lovely part of a family. Maya like to play and loves her toys especially teddies. She loves lots of fuss and attention and is a sweet natured girl. Maya loves to greet other dogs on a walk and enjoys her walks and is good on the lead. She loves to explore so is looking for a home with a garden for her to play in.
2. Doris- Crossbreed/unknown (9 years)
Doris is terrier cross who is full of character. She really has had her life turned upside down. Please note that we are only considering highly experienced people for Doris. Only people with lots of dog behaviour experience will be considered for adoption as she has some big behaviour issues which will need to be managed within the home. Doris takes time to get to know you and feel confident. Once she knows you she is a friendly girl who is always pleased to see you.
3. Diesel- Crossbreed/Unknown (1 year)
Hi, I'd like to introduce myself, I'm Diesel and I'm SO ready for my forever home, could it be with you? I'm a big bundle of love and energy and I'd looking for a special new home with lots of time and patience to teach me how to behave. When I arrived at the branch I was very young and had minimal training, but the team here have done wonders in giving me some foundations, now I need to learn how to behave in a home.
4. Ariel- Belgian Shepherd (Malinois) (1 year)
Meet the beautiful Ariel. She is a young Mali with a lot of love to give. We are looking for extremely experienced adopters to take on this beautiful girl. It is vital that you have experience with nervous/anxious dogs. Ariel is looking for a nice quiet household away from traffic in a rural setting. Poor Ariel has never been in a home before. Sadly she has grown up in kennels along with her siblings.
