An affectionate Staffordshire Bull Terrier at RSPCA Southridge is desperately looking for a new forever home.

Tilly the dog, nervous cat Murphy, and rabbits Strawberry and Bluebell are this week’s quartet of pets at the Packhorse Lane animal centre in Ridge, near Potters Bar, looking for new owners.

• Tilly is a beautiful five-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier who unfortunately finds herself at RSPCA Southridge through no fault of her own.

A Southridge spokeswoman said: “Tilly is a very affectionate dog who loves nothing more than giving kisses to her human companions.

“She loves her walks and playing with her toys so would like an active home.”


Tilly can live with children of secondary school age and would prefer to be the only pet in the home.

“Tilly is a fantastic dog and really would make a great addition to the family,” added the RSPCA spokeswoman.

• Murphy is a handsome four-year-old Norwegian Forest crossbreed who unfortunately was returned to Southridge as he was not getting along with the existing cat in the home.

The RSPCA spokeswoman said: “Murphy is a nervous boy, but once he feels confident he is very cuddly and affectionate.

“He will need a patient owner who will give him the time he needs to settle in a home where he is the only pet.”

Murphy could live with calm, older children and would like a nice secure garden to explore.

• Strawberry and Bluebell are a gorgeous pair of three-year-old domestic rabbits looking for a forever home together.

They will require a large secure hutch and run and plenty of toys to keep them occupied.
