Super cute little terrier Sheba is looking for someone to love her after she was found with her owner who had died. Staff at the RSPCA shelter said the poor girl has had a traumatic time and they would love for her have a happy ending.
She is one of five lovely dogs we are featuring this week who are desperate for new loving homes. Sheba was found in her home with her dead owner after they had passed away.
She is one of more than 650,000 dogs are currently in shelters across the UK awaiting their forever homes according to experts. During the pandemic, many people took on pets but gave them up after lockdown because of juggling work or no longer being able to care for their pet.
This has left many shelters across the UK inundated with dogs up for adoption. Today we’ll be looking at five dogs near Burton in RSPCA care that have got their paws crossed that someone will offer them a new loving home.
Dogs are a brilliant addition to any household as they’re loyal, caring and will love their owner unconditionally. However, dogs need a home where they’re not left alone all day and will get the food, walks and affection they need to keep them healthy and happy.
The dogs up for adoption this week are within 25 miles of Burton town centre. Please contact the appropriate RSPCA branch to check the dog you’re interested is still available before you set off..
Sheba the terrier: Cute little Sheba has been through a very traumatic experience. She was found in her home with her dead owner after they had passed away. Poor Sheba went into kennels and is now with the RSPCA.
The terrier is now hoping for a new owner who will spend lots of time with her and give her the love she deserves. Quiet Sheba can be a little nervous when meeting new people but will rarely be off your lap once she knows you, say staff at the shelter.
Although good with other dogs out on walkies, Sheba will need to be the only pet in the home. There needs to be no residential or visiting children as she needs an adult only household with someone who is dog savvy.
Sheba is said to be approximately four years old. If you can give Sheba the home she needs then contact the RSPCA Derby and District branch.
Daisy the pug: Daisy is a five-year-old pug who came to the RSPCA through no fault of her own. She has recently started treatment for a skin condition and although is much better, this will need to be continued in her new home.
Daisy does enjoy her own company but could be equally happy living with other dogs as long as they get on. She can’t live with cats or other small pets.
This pretty pug can live with children and would make a perfect family pet. Daisy walks well on a lead and unlike many pugs, she has a quiet and calm nature.
Daisy can also be left alone for short periods of time and doesn’t suffer from separation anxiety. If you think you could drive Miss Daisy home then contact the RSPCA Derby and District branch.
Mario the sausage dog: Timid Mario is riddled with anxiety and is currently working with a behaviourist since being brought to the RSPCA by one of its inspectors. So far he’s made huge progress, but this work must be kept up in his new home.
The four-year-old small standard Daschund will need someone around him most of the time, who’s willing to give him the love and attention he urgently needs. He’s on anti-anxiety medication and will be rehomed with a plan to wean him off it, said a spokesman.
His new owner must be patient and understanding with him as Mario needs help with his training – including toilet training. He won’t be able to live with children, cats or small furry animals, but he could potentially live with another dog as long as they’re neutered.
Anyone interested in adopting Mario should contact the RSPCA Derby and District branch.
Dougal the crossbreed: Four-year-old Dougal is a small to medium-sized crossbreed looking for his forever home. He was brought to the RSPCA by one of its inspectors and will need an experienced home with someone who’s good with dogs.
Dougal isn’t toilet trained, and has not had any general training at all, so needs someone home with him most of the time. His new owner must be patient, understanding and willing to work with him to accomplish these feats.
Children of secondary school age will be fine living with Dougal. He could possibly live with a female dog, but not cats or small pets. Anyone looking to rehome Dougal should contact the RSPCA Derby and District branch.
Corda the Siberian husky mix: If you’re an active person and you want a dog to match your energy then Corda is your girl. She loves to be on the go so she’ll need an experienced owner.
The three-year-old husky cross loves to play with toys and games but equally enjoys lots of fuss and cuddles. Corda needs someone to take the time to teach her as her general training is basic.
An adult-only home with someone who’s around most of the day as she has mild separation anxiety. If you think you’ve got the perfect home for Corda to jump into then contact the RSPCA Leicestershire, Peterborough and Rutland branch.
