A SPECIAL appeal has gone out to try and find a new home for rescue dog Rusty.

RSPCA Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre, in upper Colwyn Bay, is currently caring for the six-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier.

He arrived at the Bryn-Y-Maen centre back in June but he entered into RSPCA care back in April.

RSPCA animal centre manager Victoria Williams said: “Rusty is such a sweetheart - but unfortunately he has struggled adjusting to kennel life.

“At the moment he spends his time residing in the office, keeping a watchful eye on the staff at the centre.

"Rusty loves sleeping and can often be heard snoring in the office. We just love him - but we’d love nothing more to find a forever home for him.

“We are looking for a home where he will be taken on lots of fun and interesting walks. When out and about in the sunshine he loves to roll around in the grass.

“He ideally needs a home where someone is around most of the day as he loves to have company.

"He could also potentially share his new home with another dog and children pending good introductions here at the centre.

"He is also such a bright boy who is always eager to please, so he would also enjoy learning some new tricks through some fun and positive training."

Anyone interested in meeting Rusty can visit RSPCA Bryn-Y-Maen centre at Upper Colwyn Bay (LL28 5EJ). The centre is open between 11am-4pm every day except Wednesday.
