Lov­ing home sought for ‘chatty’ girl left on shelf

The Press and Journal (Highlands & Islands) - - News -

Sh­es­pent the se­cond half of last year be­ing passed over when it came to get­ting a new owner.

But Scot­land's an­i­mal wel­fare char­ity is hop­ing that 2017 is the year that Roxi finds her new for­ever home.

The Scot­tish SPCA is seek­ing a new home for Roxi, a Stafford­shire bull ter­rier, who has been at the In­ver­ness An­i­mal Res­cue and Re­hom­ing Cen­tre for over seven months.

Cen­tre man­ager Elaine Floyd said: “Sadly Roxi has been with us for over seven months with­out find­ing her new for­ever home.

“She’s your typ­i­cal chatty, ex­citable staffie girl who just wants to play.

“She didn’t have the best start in life so would ben­e­fit from an owner who is pa­tient and will­ing to go back to ba­sics with her train­ing.

“While we’re very fond of hav­ing Roxi here, it would be won­der­ful if2017 proved to be the year she found her new for­ever home.”

Any­one who can of­fer Roxi a new home is be­ing asked to con­tact the Scot­tish SPCA’s In­ver­ness cen­tre on 03000 999 999. At the end of last year, the SSPCA in In­ver­ness ap­pealed to an­i­mal lovers in the area to look af­ter some of the guinea pigs in its care.

Staff at the In­shes cen­tre were look­ing af­ter 35 guinea pigs, most only a few weeks old.

They also be­came a tem­po­rary home for a piglet that was found run­ning wild on a busy dual car­riage­way. The SSPCA was alerted af­ter a lorry driver spot­ted the com­mer­cial Lan­drace piglet on the A90 near the Forth Road Bridge in De­cem­ber.
