A dog who was found abandoned in a garden shed hasn’t had a single rehoming application since arriving in kennels.
Snoop, who is thought to be around four years old, was brought to RSPCA Newport Animal Centre last month in a sorry state.
He was thin, quiet and in desperate need of love and care.
The lurcher came to the centre with another dog, called Mitsy, who has since been rehomed.
A RSPCA spokesperson said: “His personality is now shining through and his careers absolutely love him, which is why we cannot understand why Snoop has not had any interest since being up for homing.
“It would be great if Snoop could celebrate Christmas with his new forever family. Snoop so deserves happiness and love.”
It is unusual for a dog to receive zero application – especially for a dogs like Snoop who has a lot of love to give.
Hope Rescue in Llanharan has had 7,200 applications this year alone for 220 dogs – working out to be around 33 applications per dog.
Snoop is currently learning how to play with toys as staff suspect he has never experienced them before.
The RSPCA spokesperson added: “Whenever he engages with a toy, he is starting to get excited and enjoying the better things in life.
Snoop could live with secondary school aged children who are used to bigger dogs – but would need to be the only dog in the home. He walks well on a lead and is happy to walk with other dogs.
