Devoted mother and son dogs looking for a new home together

The RSPCA is looking for a home for two Northern Innuit dogs who came into the charity’s care through its Home for Life scheme.

Majika and Moisheka, a mother and son duo, came into the RSPCA’s West Hatch Animal Centre in Taunton, Somerset in August this year.

Their owner had registered them for the RSPCA’s Home for Life scheme, which means that if an owner passes away, the charity will care for and try to find the loving home that their pet deserves.

Five-year old Majika and eight-year old Moisheka are a closely bonded pair of dogs who have a lovely relationship together so are looking to find a home as a pair.

They will need a home with a large, secure garden and ideally situated in a rural location as they need plenty of opportunities to exercise. Their new owner would ideally have experience of large dog breeds and could live with children of secondary school age or older.

Majika and Moisheka are housetrained and travel well, they both have a wonderful gentle nature but will need some further training to learn that it is okay to be left alone for short periods of time as it’s unknown if they were previously used to being left.

RSPCA staff advise that the pair are bright sparks and will benefit from an owner who can continue with their training and offer them plenty of time, patience and enrichment.

Jane Tyson, a pet welfare specialist from the RSPCA, said: “Looking after a pet means loving and caring for them, for life and it can also mean making plans for them in the event of our death, like Majika and Moisheka’s owner sensibly did.

“Just as things like moving house can be stressful for us, going to a new home can also be stressful for our pets. However, we work very hard to make sure animals find an owner who suits them and are on hand to help with advice and support.

“One of the best parts of working for the RSPCA is knowing an animal has been rehomed and seeing the joy they bring into their owners’ life.”

If you think you can give Majika and Moisheka a loving home, you can contact RSPCA West Hatch Animal Centre on 0300 123 0747 or whdomcen@rspca.org.uk.

Under the Home for Life scheme, animals which outlive their owners will be looked after by the RSPCA in a centre or by foster carers until the perfect new home can be found for them.
