For the past five years, this dog mix found its home forever in 10 days. On average, it takes the charity 61 days to resume a dog.
Steph McCawley, Support Engagement Officer for the RSPCA Chesterfield and North Derbyshire office, said, “In general, smaller dogs are easier to relocate and are considered more desirable than the larger breeds. Every dog is different, however, and everyone has very different needs that can affect how quickly they can be housed again.
“An ideal dog would be someone who could live with children of all ages and other pets, although this is very rare as many of the dogs that come into our care come from very difficult backgrounds or have no history at all, and we need to find out what would be the perfect home for each of them.
