Pudding’s not just for Christmas

A Staffordshire Bull Terrier is being cared for by Dogs Trust Evesham after being attached to a park bench and abandoned overnight.

Administration manager Nick McCoy found the female bull terrier on the morning of Saturday November 19th. The Staff at Wickhamford re-homing centre have named the female bull terrier Pudding and hope to have her re-homed before Christmas.

Pudding is the latest of an increasing number of bull breed dogs that have been handed over to the centre during this year. This is due to many people opting for status dogs before realising they are not able to take care of them properly.

Mr McCoy said:

“In the current climate we are seeing more and more people handing over dogs because they can no longer afford to keep them,

“However, to see this so near to Christmas is even more heart breaking.

“At Evesham, as with many of our other centres, many dogs are abandoned around the festive season often with just a note attached to their collar, or in this case a box of food.”

The centre is looking to piece together more information about Pudding’s life, as Mr McCoy says she is an extremely friendly dog:

“Pudding is a lovely young dog and although she is a bit timid, which is understandable given how she arrived at the centre, you can already see that she is very friendly and given time to get to know you she is very affectionate,

“She needs an active home that can help her shift some of her extra weight and has the time to help her settle.

“We are appealing for anyone that knows anything about her to come forward and help piece together her history before she joins the other 60 or more dogs at the centre hoping their dreams of a new home will come true.”

If you have any information, or feel you can offer Pudding, or any of the other dogs, a new and friendly home, please get in touch with Dogs Trust Evesham on 01386 830 613 or visit their website.
