Dogs Waiting Over 2 Years for Home

April Livingston | September 11th, 2018

A collie mix named Daisy and a Jack Russell terrier Poppy have spent their entire lives together. The pair are best doggy friends and are inseparable. In 2016 their world was turned upside down when they were surrendered to the RSPCA. Their owner was evicted and could not care for them any longer. The older dogs needed to be adopted as a pair, but quickly were adopted by a couple who loved them. Then, that couple split up and instead of taking the dogs, they surrendered them back to the shelter again. The dogs have been in the shelter together ever since.

Poppy is now 17 years old and Daisy is 10, which makes it more difficult for them to find a home because they are senior dogs. They are a bonded pair and they go everywhere and do everything together. Shelter staff say the dogs have so much love to give someone, but for some reason it is hard to find a placement in a home for them. The staff also says that Poppy, who is 17, is nearing the end of her life and they want to see her in a comfortable home as she makes that transition. They also want some consistency and normalcy for Daisy when the day comes that she loses her best friend.

Since both dogs are seniors, they are very low maintenance and just need a family to give them comfort and love. They are not great around other dogs, but they would be perfect for a family with children. The shelter is a stressful place for them, so getting them into a loving home sooner rather than later is very important for Daisy and Poppy. They are two sweet dogs who would be great companions for someone. They are available for adoption now and you can contact the RSPCA if you would like to give them a loving home: https://www.bathcatsanddogshome.org.uk/rehoming/dogs/daisy_and_poppy/7702/
