Mia the crossbreed is a sensitive soul who has not had the best of starts and longs for a place she can finally call home.

She is a very sweet, affectionate girl, who loves attention and is at her happiest when on her back getting lots of belly rubs.

Mia is house-trained and loves human company so much that she can get very anxious when left alone for too long, so she is looking for an owner who is home the majority of the day.

This lovely lady carries the world on her shoulders, she worries so much that we think the hustle and bustle of town or city life would be too much for her, therefore a quieter environment would be perfect.

We hear that Mia quite likes children so could possibly suit a family home, with dog-savvy children over the age of 12 years.

Although Mia can struggle to trust her canine companions initially, she is thriving with socialisation training at the centre, so just needs an experienced and patient owner to continue with this in her new home.

If you can offer Mia the home she needs, contact the Scottish SPCA Dunbartonshire centre on 03000 999 999.
