Give Dougie a new place to call home.

COULD you offer a home to Dougie the degu? The unusual resident at the RSPCA's Great Ayton rehoming centre was picked up as a stray in Bishop Auckland and the furry chap is hoping to find a loving new home.

"Ideally with someone that is familiar with the breed, or willing to learn," says small animal supervisor Bev Johnson.

Dougie is thought to be around two years old but the little critters can live up to 13.

Bev says degus come with special dietary requirements and drink bottled water.

They are friendly, sociable animals that are awake during the day but enjoy dozing on and off.

If you can offer Dougie a home call the rehoming centre on 0300 1230743.

Potential new owners will need to undergo a home visit and a donation is required.
