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. Kia- American Atika (4 years)
Kia is a fun-loving 4 year old Akita looking for her forever home. Kia is a sweet girl who loves lots of cuddles and fuss and being showered with love. She likes to be active and play with toys so is looking for a home with a spacious garden for her to explore and play in. Kia loves her walks but can be strong on the lead so will need some continuous training to help with this. She is reactive towards some dogs and does have a high chase drive so would benefit from some continued socialisation and training to work on this. She is an intelligent girl that loves her enrichment as well.
2. Max- Border Collie crossbreed (11 years)
Max is a lovely 11 year old Collie cross looking for his forever home. He is a playful boy who loves his toys, especially teddies and balls. Max likes his walks and he is good on the lead. He would love a home with a spacious garden for him to explore and run around in. He loves fuss and attention and would make a lovely companion in the home. He likes to be active but also loves to curl up and relax. Max loves people so would love to be in a home where someone will be with him and can create a loving bond. Max is looking for an adult only home or with children over the age of 14 years who are familiar with dogs. He may be able to live with another calm dog but is not suited to living with cats or small furries. He can be left but is looking for a home where he will only be left for short periods of time.
3. Sasha- German Shepherd crossbreed (2 years)
Super Sasha. Sasha was nervous when she first arrived at the Centre, however after she had been here a little while (and with plenty of treats) she began to trust us more and decided that we weren't that bad. Sasha will need to meet a prospective adopter multiple times before she can go to a new home. Sasha arrived through another rehoming centre who had been struggling to find her forever home. Sasha hasn't had a great start, she has been mistreated at times and lived on the streets with her owner for a while but she does not let this hold her back. She loves her food (especially a cheeky chicken nugget)! It is important that Sasha finds an experienced owner that will give her a loving and secure home! She is a VERY clever girl, and not only knows basic commands but also seems able to understand what you ask of her. She is a fast and eager learner, so would thrive with ongoing training and mental stimulation.
4. Daisy- Labrador Retriever (1 year)
Delicate Daisy. Daisy is a 18 month old Labrador who arrived at Abbey Street as her owner was struggling with her needs and required help. This girlie is amazing! She is super clever and there is nothing she cannot work out, however, she is not for the faint hearted. Daisy has anxiety based issues. We are currently working on these and but she will need on going training and help. There has been a massive improvement in her behaviour already but we can only progress her so far in a kennel environment and feel she would benefit further from being placed in a home environment to help her further and continue her training.
