Scottish SPCA looking for homes for ‘Britain’s favourite dogs’

The Scottish SPCA currently has 12 smiling staffies looking for their loving forever homes at their rescue and rehoming centres throughout Scotland.

StaffiesWe were thrilled at the result of ITV’s ‘Britain’s Favourite Dog’ programme which aired on 29 January.

A survey of 10,000 British people concluded that Britain is a nation of staffie lovers, with the Staffordshire bull terrier coming out on top in the poll.

Rescue and rehoming centre superintendent Sharon Comrie said, “It’s clear to see why they were announced as our favourite dog breed in the UK. They are friendly, loyal and affectionate dogs. They are real people dogs and thrive on human companionship.

“We currently have 12 super staffies in our centres across Scotland. They’ve each been with us for more than 100 days but we’re still hopeful they’ll get their much deserved staffie ever after. 

“Sandy, who is being cared for at our centre in Ayr, is our longest current staffie resident. He arrived over 267 days ago.”

Sharon went on to say, “Sandy is nine years old and has been with us since May 2018. He’s playful and absolutely loves his toys.

“He’s still a bit unsure of new situations, so he’ll need a patient owner to ease the transition into his forever home. 

“As much as we love him, we’re desperate to find him the loving family he deserves.

“In addition to Sandy, we have 11 other staffies in our centres that are still looking for their ‘staffie ever after.’”
