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. Carrie- Bichon Frise (3 years)
Carrie arrived in RSPCA care as part of a large multi animal investigation into puppy farming. Carrie is a beautiful little dog but she hasn't had a good life and she is not going to be easy. We rehomed Carrie last year to a very quiet home but things didn't work out.
6. Shadow- Belgian Sheepdog (Groenendael) (3 years)
Shadow is 3 years old and her absolute favourite thing is to play a good game of fetch. She is very calm, and well behaved in the home, and respectful of the resident cats who she views as her pack! Shadow is a large young dog with lots of energy, so she will need an owner who is up for the challenge of continuing to work with her on this. Shadow should not be let off-lead in public, and has to wear a muzzle and a harness in areas where other dogs may be off-lead.
7. Scooby- Greyhound (3 years)
It’s hard to speak about three year old Scooby without first mentioning just what a sweet and sensitive soul he is. Scooby loves his comforts - his favourite, giant, soft bed, for one - and people, he adores being fussed and cuddled, but he is very much not one for life’s rough and tumble. He’s not that sort - he’s a boy for warmth not cold, soft not rough, quiet not noisy. He’s a boy who really deserves a very special home.
8. Rambo- Anatolian Shepherd (2 years)
This handsome boy is Rambo. He is an Anatolian Shepherd and has found himself in our care through no fault of his own. As you can see, Rambo is a very big dog. His breed are used as guarders of livestock! He still needs to gain some weight but is already weighing in at 50kg. A family with previous large breed experience would be ideal for Rambo.
