The Scottish SPCA is seeking a forever home for a senior pooch who has been overlooked for nearly a year.

Mr Bertie Brown, a ten-year-old Staffordshire Terrier has been stuck in Dunbartonshire’s Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre for 223 days.

Formerly known as Snoop, Bertie is one of the longest serving rescue centre residents.

The centre had hoped that, following a public appeal on May 15, Bertie might find a place to finally call home.

Sadly no one stepped forward, and poor Bertie remains waiting patiently to be given a new lease of life.

Although ten years old, staff at the centre say Bertie has plenty of energy - and can run and chase a ball all day, every day.

He is full of love and simply wants all human attention for himself. He would suit a house without any other pets.

Judy Button, manager of the centre said: “Bertie Brown is a gorgeous guy who is continuously being overlooked in the kennels.

“He is 10 years old, but is still full of life and has a lot of love to give. This boy could run rings around some younger dogs when chasing a ball, he will happily spend his days in a garden chasing as many as he can get in his mouth.”

“Bertie can have a bit of attitude with other dogs and would much rather have all the human company to himself, so he would prefer to be the only pet in the house.

“The team at the centre adore this boy and would like to see him going to the loving home he deserves.”
