A gorgeous mother and daughter pair of Chihuahuas are looking for their forever home together in this week’s RSPCA Southridge appeal.

Ruby and Frankie unfortunately arrived at RSPCA Southridge from a multi-animal household.

Ruby is eight years old and Frankie is six, and they are looking for a home together.

A spokeswoman for the RSPCA centre in Packhorse Lane, Ridge, said: “They are both quite nervous, with Ruby being slightly more confident, but once they know and trust you they can be very affectionate.

“Due to their nervous temperament they are looking for a quiet, adult-only home where they will be given the time and patience they need to settle.”

As they have previously lived with cats and dogs they could live with a cat and dog again.

“Ruby and Frankie have had an unlucky start and really do deserve a forever home,” added the Southridge spokeswoman.

• Reuben is a handsome nine-year-old domestic shorthair cat who finds himself at Southridge as he sadly lost his owner suddenly.

The Southridge spokeswoman said: “Reuben has found settling into the cattery quite stressful and was very nervous at first.

“However over time he has slowly started to come out of his shell and prove what a lovely, playful boy he really is.”

Reuben requires a patient, adult-only home that will allow him the time he needs to settle into a new home.

He could live with another cat and a calm dog, and needs access to a secure garden.

“Reuben is a charming chap who so deserves a new forever home,” added the RSPCA spokeswoman.
