Abandoned dog getting lots of love in RSCPA care

A dog who was abandoned in Stoke-on-Trent is continuing his recovery in RSPCA care.

Millions of people around the world saw CCTV footage of Staffordshire Bull Terrier Snoop being dumped on a street in Stoke-on-Trent before Christmas.

Whilst the investigation into his abandonment continues, Snoop is being cared for at an RSPCA centre in Shropshire, where staff are giving him a lot of love and helping him to feel secure again.

RSPCA Spokeswoman, Rachel Butler, said: “It is still early days for Snoop as what happened to him caused him a lot of distress. Staff who are caring for him have found that he has severe separation anxiety, which is no surprise after what happened to him, so they are working with him to try and alleviate this.

“At the moment he still isn’t available for rehoming while we work with him and continue to assess him. We know that so many people would love to offer him a home and we are grateful to everyone who has showed an interest in him. We are still assessing him to see what sort of home he would be suited to.

“We’re still getting to know Snoop just as he is getting to know us. He loves to play so we are teaching him to play nicely as he gets very overexcited. We know how much Snoop touched the hearts over Christmas, so we wanted to let everyone know how he is doing. It is a long road ahead for Snoop and we know that people won’t be forgetting him in a hurry.

“Snoop is such a loveable character and enjoys being around people. He just loves getting close to people, sitting between their legs and having cuddles and is certainly enjoying lots of love and affection from our staff.”

Even though Snoop isn’t ready for rehoming just yet, the RSPCA have many other Staffies, just like Snoop who are looking for their loving homes. To find out more you can visit their Find a Pet website.
