New home appeal by The Mayhew for a pair of Dalmatians

PUBLISHED: 08:00 24 August 2014




The Mayhew Animal home is looking for a new family to adopt a pair of Dalmatians who ended up in their care after their owners split up.


Penny and Purdy arrived at the charity in Trenmar Gardens, Kensal Green, earlier this month and need to rehomed with one family or person.

The seven-year-old females are toilet trained, can be left home alone for a few hours and travel well in a car.

While Penny is very friendly and confident, Purdy is more laid back, sensitive can be a little too boisterous for smaller dogs

Both know the usual commands and need to be rehomed in a household which has owned dogs before.

They can live with children but ideally they should be aged 10 or over.

Their new owners will be expected to provide a minimum of one hour of active off-lead exercise every day.

Caroline Yates, Mayhew CEO, said: “It’s always sad for the adults and children when relationships break down but people forget its animals who suffer greatly as well.

“Penny and Purdy are lovely dogs who are used to a family environment. They have no idea why they ended up at The Mayhew Animal Home or what’s happened to their family let alone where they are going next.

“It’s a lot for them to deal with. That’s why they want to stay together. “They really deserve a loving secure family home. “
