Staffie who is ‘part teddy bear’ languishes in kennels
An adorable dog who has been described as ‘part Staffie and part teddy bear’ is looking for his forever home after being left languishing in kennels. Bruce hasn’t been doing well in the shelter since being taken to Crewe from the RSPCA, Nantwich and District Branch.
Despite being described as ‘very friendly and affectionate’, potential owners overlooked 11-year-old Bruce. A statement read: “We just can’t understand why this wonderful boy is still with us. He is so loving and sweet, a true ‘man’s best friend’.
“He loves cuddles and tummy time rubs and has the cutest snorer! He loves going for walks and is very good around the house.

“His needs are simple – food, a comfy bed and lots of cuddles. He’s a low-maintenance guy. He doesn’t need a lot of walking, he’s equally happy to play and potter. in the garden and spending time with his human friends.”
As Bruce is partially deaf, he needs an owner who is willing to transition from verbal to visual communications – and who can provide him with the extra support he needs to navigate the world around him, MirrorOnline Reports.
“Bruce’s partial deafness causes him no problems in everyday life. In fact, we often forget about it,” the statement added.
“Bruce would fit in well in a quiet, adult-only home as a single pet, with an enclosed garden for safe play and exercise and quiet areas to roam where he won’t enter. often in contact with other dogs.
“His only weakness is that he doesn’t like other dogs. This is easily managed when approached properly. Walking on a leash in quieter areas away from dog trails helps him tremendously.”
The RSPCA is urging people to adopt an animal in need rather than turning to breeders when they want to welcome a pet into their family.
“While it can be easy to find animals on the internet or even spend hundreds of dollars on an expensive breeder, you could risk heartache or huge vet bills if you don’t do your homework. “, says a press release.
“By adopting, not buying, you’ll also feel good about doing good – giving an animal a second chance at a loving home! Plus, adopting from us means you can relax knowing that all of our animals are healthy, sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped.
“As with all animals we take in, we will pass on details of their behavior and veterinary treatment. You will likely know more about your rescue animal’s history than if you were to purchase an animal online.
“We’ve taken the time to get to know each animal as an individual, understand their likes and dislikes, and prepare them for life in a loving family, which means there’s less chance of having bad surprises when you get home!
“When you adopt a cat or dog from one of our centres, you also get four weeks of free pet insurance, essential to protect your pet’s future as well as your bank balance! so much to gain by saving an animal in need.”
