Preston is a youthful 1 year and 9 months old whose eyes would melt any heart and an appealing personality. A gorgeous Mastiff Shar Pei crossbreed, this large fellow will need clear, kind but consistent handling and guidance but he will be worth every effort. He has no known health problems and he’s ready to lavish you with love, licks and loyalty.
RSPCA Sheffield Branch Animal Care Manager Tony Benham says: “Preston is a lively young boy looking for a fresh start in life. Still only a baby in a lot of ways, he has had an unsettled start which has left him with some gaps in his social development and education that now need to be filled. He will need a clear, consistent but kind owner who will lavish Preston with praise for the all right things he does, while he settles and blossoms.
“This fun loving, enthusiastic youngster is affectionate, eager to please, learn new things and interact with people. Being a young lad, he is still developing some of his doggy manners and so he would benefit from an active, adult only home with experienced dog owners. But the time taken to invest in this beautiful boy’s continued training will be returned tenfold due to his loveable personality and charms.
“He enjoys the company of other dogs and this provides him with a great outlet for his energy and love of life. We can assess Preston’s suitability to live with cats if required.
“If his new home has children, those over the age of thirteen would be probably be best suited due to his age and size.
“When it comes to exercising a dog, it is not just about walking. That can make up a large part of a dog’s regime but mental stimulation and varying activities is just as important. A dog needs the stimulus and joy of being able to have a good sniff at the world’s sights and smells. Our centre will advise and form an agreement plan with any new owners as part of the adoption process and we are always here to support.
“We’d love to introduce you to Preston and we are hoping the right person or people will come forward soon to meet this lovable charmer. We are open every day except Wednesdays.”
