Staff at RSPCA Newport Animal Centre are hoping to find the perfect match for Tango the dog ahead of St Valentine’s Day - this Friday.
The three-year-old lurcher crossbreed has been looking for a home for some time now, and the Hartridge Farm Road centre staff hope his forever home and second chance of happiness is on the horizon.
Centre manager Kate Hiscock said: “Tango has been in our care for six months now, and he is finding kennel life very stressful.
“Sadly two homes have already fallen through for this lad, as he does need some training in how to feel safe around new people, and how to cope when on his own.
“He will need a quieter home with few visitors that can be introduced slowly with positive reinforcement. We really hope love is in the air for Tango and it will be third time lucky.”
Kate said Tango LOVES getting plenty of fuss from staff and volunteers at the centre.
“He is just so loving,” she said. “He is certainly a friendly, happy chappy. He loves playing with his toys and very much enjoys running around in our paddock area.
“He can be shy - but once he gets to know you Tango has such a loving nature and he really would be an excellent member of the family.”
Although Tango walks well with dogs he is better suited to being the only pet in the home so that his new owners can focus on his training and help him adjust. He would prefer a home with older secondary school aged children who can give him all the fuss and cuddles that he deserves.
If you think Tango is the right one for you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and request a perfect match form or you can call the centre on 0300 123 0744.
As well as Tango there are lots of rescue animals looking for their forever homes at RSPCA Newport Animal Centre. All the animals currently available can be found on the website Find A Pet or please drop by the centre - which is within easy reach of the M4 just off junction 24.
