A dog that was taken to the vet to be put to sleep before being rescued by a former owner is now looking for a new home.
Pino the Jack Russell terrier/Chihuahua cross is up for adoption with East Coast Pet Rescue based in Great Yarmouth.
This ‘sweet’ dog was brought to the center after his former owner was alerted when his microchip was scanned.
His owner at the time had taken him to the vet to be put down.
Pino was taken in but his previous landlord was unable to give him permanent accommodation, so he was brought in to help.
A spokesperson for the rescue center said: “He has his issues which we would discuss with any potential owner, but he is also the most affectionate and gentle dog.
“He loves cuddles and once he trusts you he is the most devoted dog. He gets along well with cats but is still very puppy-like and wants to play.
“But he’s looking for a home without children or visiting children.”
Pino is one of 14 pets looking for adoption at the rescue center. Could you give these animals a home?
Marlon and Dingle, cats
A rescue spokesperson said: ‘Marlon and Dingle are not yet ready to be relocated, but we are happy to take applications for them.
“They are talkative, characterful seven-year-old brothers.
“They have food allergies so their new owner will have to keep them on their prescription diet.”
“If you’re looking for a friendly, talkative companion, then Dudley is your man.
“He has such a great character and will put a smile on your face every day. A routine blood test showed he is FIV+ but there are no other health issues.
“He is looking for an indoor-only home where he will be the only cat. Dudley could live with a friendly and sociable dog.
Sooty boy and Susiesoo, cats
“Sooty boy and Susiesoo are both around 5 years old and are looking for a house together.
“They haven’t had access to the outdoors before, so they would suit someone looking for indoor cats.
“However, if you live in a quiet and safe area, it might be good if they could be slowly introduced to a safe back garden under supervision.
“Sidney came to us in a terrible condition with severe breathing difficulties and an inflamed ulcerated mouth.
“With lots of time, vet visits and TLC from his adoptive mother, he is now much better.
“He has feline calichivirus and it’s something that can flare up from time to time.
“However, we would still support his new owner with this if needed. Sidney will also need an indoors only home where he is the only cat.
“Scarlet is a 13 year old pure black cat.
“She is very friendly and sweet and loves being with people.
“She arrived with a skin condition which is now healing and she will be ready for a new home soon.”
Clover and Bumble, rabbits
“Clover and Bumble are related male and female bunnies.
“They were recently sterilized and are now looking for a home.
“They will need accommodation where they can have 24-hour safe access to a race. A hutch is not enough.
Bing and Crosby, rabbits
“Bing and Crosby are related brothers.
“They have always been indoor bunnies, but as the weather gets warmer they could be introduced to outdoor housing.
“They have very long hair and will need someone who has time to groom them regularly.”
George and Patrick, rabbits
“George and Patrick are another pair of male rabbits.
“They were entrusted to us while they were fighting, but now that they’ve been sterilized, they’re the best of friends.
“As with all of our rabbits, they will need accommodation that meets RSPCA minimum dimensions.”
