The Scottish SPCA is looking for a special owner for a dog who has been in its care for almost eight months.

Sadie, who is five to eight-years-old, has been with the charity since May after being found as a stray and she is still patiently waiting for her forever home.

Now staff at the charity’s Ayrshire and South West Scotland Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre are appealing for a kind-hearted person to take on the friendly Staffordshire bull terrier and offer her a second chance.

Centre Manager Marion Hainey said: “Poor Sadie has been constantly overlooked by prospective owners and it’s a real shame because she’s an absolutely lovely girl.

“After spending around four months in our Glasgow Centre she was moved here in September to try her luck in another area but, sadly, no one seems to want her.

“The dogs who have been in our care for the longest amount of time do tend to be staffies and staffy crosses and this is no coincidence.

“Unfortunately, they are unfairly tagged as being aggressive and intimidating towards people, but in our experience this couldn’t be further from the truth.

“Sadie is a real sweetheart and is happiest when she’s lying in her bed with her cosy blanket or being shown affection.

“Although we all love her, Sadie really deserves to be part of a caring family and it will make us so happy if she finds a new home soon.”

Anyone interested in rehoming Sadie can visit the charity’s Ayrshire and South West Scotland Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre or call their Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
