Hefty hounds Nelson, Fern, Sprite and Beano may look like they could take on the world, but these sensitive souls have not had an easy life. Now in RSPCA care, they are waiting patiently for their forever homes.
The four gentle giants came into RSPCA care as part of a cruelty case after they were discovered in terrible conditions on a farm last year.
Following their rescue along with a number of other dogs who have gone onto other centres, the dogs, who are between four and six years old, are now officially signed over to RSPCA care, and are hoping to find their perfect homes this spring.
RSPCA Sussex, Brighton & East Grinstead branch manager Jenny Wells said: “Although these dogs are not suitable for first-time owners, they are very special and have a lot of love to give, and we are sure that the perfect home for each of them is out there somewhere.
“Fern, Beano, Sprite and Nelson have been through a great deal in the last few months and are very shy, so each one will take a little while to come out of his or her shell. Once they know you, they are so friendly and loving, and very cuddly.
“We are looking for owners with time and patience, and an experience of large-breed dogs to come and meet this lovely bunch, so we can hopefully find a home for each of them.
Jenny added: “They are all good with other dogs, however they will all need a home without cats or young children.
“If you have a passion for large-breed dogs and are currently looking to adopt a rescue dog, we would really encourage you to come and meet this lovely bunch - you may just find your perfect companion.”
