Truffle

Truffle, a 12-week-old Jack Russell Terrier, who was brought into Battersea in December 2018. His owner had bought him after seeing an internet ad and met the seller at a train station, where the young dog was handed over wrapped in a towel.

Staffy

Staffordshire bull terriers have been named as Britain’s Favourite Dog much to the delight of RSPCA centres across England & Wales.

Trevor

Two-year-old Trevor is always on the go and is looking for an active home to call his own. He’s a bouncy boy who is very affectionate and loyal. He can be quite strong on the lead and would benefit from some further training so would be best in a new home with owners who have time to invest in him. He’s currently at RSPCA Westmorland Branch in Cumbria. For more information please visit his online profile.

Stella

Stella is a lovely girl who is looking for a home with patient and experienced owners. The five-year-old is very shy around new people and needs help gaining confidence. She absolutely loves playing games with staff at RSPCA Millbrook Animal Centre in Surrey, and her favourite toy is her football. She needs a home with owners who will continue with her training and socialisation work. For more information please see her online profile.

Roxy

Six-year-old Roxy was rescued by RSPCA officers investigating animal cruelty and was extremely nervous. She’s much more confident now but can be a little wary around new people so needs time to come of her shell. She’s very playful and affectionate, once she knows you. Roxy is patiently waiting at RSPCA Sheffield Animal Centre and staff would like her to go to owners with lots of time to help her settle in. For more information check out her online profile.

Rocky and Ruby

This golden oldie pair are hoping to find a loving new home together. Rocky, 14, and Ruby, 11, are being looked after by staff at RSPCA Bath Cats & Dogs Home. They love people and are extremely affectionate but struggle around other dogs. They love fuss and attention, live snoozing on the sofa, and can be left alone for short periods. For more information please visit their online profile.

Link

Nine-year-old Staffie cross Link is an intelligent and active boy who is also a little sensitive. He’s very frightened of loud noises and is looking for new owners who can continue his training to build his confidence. He’s currently at RSPCA Woodchurch Animal Centre in Kent. He loves fuss and attention, and could live with children but would be best as the only pet. For more information visit his online profile.
