THE SADDEST DOGS IN SCOTLAND - “…you can just see the light in his eyes fading as he returns to his lonely kennel at the end of another day without any interest.”
Scooby, Oliver, and Frankie are the “least-loved” dogs in Scotland. They are all Staffordshire Bull Terriers who have been waiting for someone to adopt them for a combined total of over 31 months. The Scottish SPCA has initiated a movement to highlight these dogs who are languishing in its shelters. Here’s more from the official website:
Scooby, Frankie and Oliver are three dogs with three things in common. They are all Staffordshire bull terriers, they are all homeless and together they are Scotland’s least-loved dogs.
We have been caring for the boys for a total of 31 months, with Scooby the longest resident of all the animals in our care, clocking up 15 months in kennels to date.
The dogs have become so desperately sad that we have now launched a nationwide hunt to find all three dogs loving, permanent, homes.
“But the sad reality is that looks matter and the cute fluffy breeds always get picked over the brindle staffie types every time.
It appears that these lovely dogs may be victims of a bias against bully breeds. Hopefully this new initiative by the Scottish SPCA will result in new homes for these dogs. Click here for more from deadlinenews.co.uk and here to learn more about the Scottish SPCA.
