“This lovely, friendly lad has been with the RSPCA for a staggering 532 days and is desperate to find the paw-fect home this Christmas.

“He’s a lively pooch who enjoys long walks and would love to find an active family to take him on.

“He’d benefit from some further training and he loves learning new things. This sensitive lad has a few allergies and has a special diet.

“He’d like to be the only pet but could live with a family with older children.”

He is currently located in the York branch and if you think you may have just the home for him, then you should click here, email [email protected] or call 01904 654949.
