Our lovely shy terriers. – Rehomed

RSPCA inspectors asked our branch for help in taking in and caring for several cross breed terriers who had been rescued from a multi-dog household where they had been kept most of the time in cages.  They are estimated to be about 4 years of age.

These 4 have now found homes but we have their friends who need very special homes and their photos will soon be on the site..

Understandably these little dogs are very frightened of anything they haven’t met before and will need experienced terrier families to help them to become more confident and ready to face the great outdoors.

If you are around for most of the time and live within easy traveling distance from our branch in Greater Manchester.   It would be great if you already have a small, friendly,  confident and neutered dog who needs a companion to complete their and your life please don’t hesitate to contact the branch for further information.

Good to know…

The branch will not rehome RSPCA dogs as guard dogs, thieves these days won’t hesitate to hurt a dog – please get a good burglar alarm instead.

Also, we will not allow our dogs to go to homes where they will live outside, as there is nothing so upsetting than to see a dog without human interaction, spending their days on the end of a chain or in a lonely kennel.

Unfortunately the branch cannot accept Staffordshire Bull terriers and their crosses directly from members of the public, only via RSPCA inspectors.
