NO LOVE OR BRUV; Adorable Teisha alone; Pets and their People.
Byline: Geraldine McKelvie
A DOG who has lived her whole life with her brother is in need of a home, and company, after he died.
Despite repeated appeals, no one has volunteered to adopt ten-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier Teisha.
She had been taken in by the RSPCA with her brother Bracken in the summer of 2014.
RSPCA rehoming coordinator Sue Preston said the pair were given up for adoption after their owner was unable to care for them properly because of work commitments.
Then last year Bracken died of cancer and Teisha was fully alone for the first time.
She said: "Teisha and Bracken were spending most of their time alone, shut in a back yard.
"When Bracken died, at first Teisha seemed lost. But after mourning her brother for several months she began to deal with her loss. She started to come out of her shell and began interacting more with people."
The rehoming centre in Bridlington East Yorks, is still desperate to find Teisha a happy home so she can spend the rest of her life in a caring environment.
Sue a have f her a and qu ho Sue and her colleagues have fallen in love with her affectionate nature and hope to find a quiet, adult-only home.
Sue said: "Teisha is a loving dog who enjoys attention and cuddles from anyone she meets.
"She is a calm, friendly girl - possibly due to her age - and needs a quiet retirement home where she will be the only dog and can live out her life.
"Teish from a r her new can re attenti "Teisha would benefit from a routine lifestyle in her new home where she can receive the full attention of her new owner and enjoy some comfort for her remaining years."
THE RSPCA rescues nearly 130,000 animals each year and rehomes 50,000. All animals from RSPCA centres are sterilised, vaccinated and microchipped before they are given to their new owners.
Owners also receive six weeks' free pet insurance when they begin the adoption process. If you would like to adopt Teisha, call the centre on 01377 240 325.
