TWO dogs are looking for a loving forever home after being in care for some time.

The RSPCA Herefordshire branch said five-year-old Vizla Ruby has not been very lucky with life so far.

“She really is a gorgeous, affectionate girl who just needs someone with the time and patience to do some training with her,” said the spokesperson.

Fergus is a spritely eight-year-old German shorthaired pointer also looking for someone who has time and energy for him.

The centre is looking for people who ideally has experience of their breeds.

Both are working dogs so have high energy and activity levels, so they need lots of secure space to run around in.

Any potential adopter will have lots of work to do with training and recall before they can go off lead.

Their new homes must have no pets and young children.


Any potential adopter would need to visit several times first, so the dogs are not going into their new homes as total strangers.

“They need time and attention to bond with their new family,” said the spokesperson.

There are also other dogs, cats, and rabbits looking for foster homes.

For short-term fostering all expenses are covered including vets’ bills and mileage accrued, and supply an equipment needed.
