A second Chance

Chance the dog and an SSPCA officer

Poor Chance was overlooked time and time again, no matter how many times we tried to find this lovable lad a home.

A year passed by and no one wanted him, though he was very much loved at our rehoming centre!

Then 18 months came and went and still Chance remained in our care. But, finally, his time came and he was off to his new home. We couldn't have been happier.

Joe McDade, manager of our rehoming centre near Dumbarton, said, "Chance was just really unlucky."

"Some Staffordshire bull terriers can take a little longer to find new homes than other breeds because of the unfair and negative perception some people have of them.

While it very rarely takes months and months to find them homes, Chance was with us for a year and a half.

He was a really nice dog who just needed someone to take him on and we were delighted when he went to a new home with a loving new owner."
