About me

“Great news, a family have applied to rehome me and will be coming to visit me soon. Fingers crossed they’ll love me and want to take me home but until we meet we won’t know if we’re perfect for one another so you can still apply for me in case things don’t work out.”

Hi folks, my name is Desmond. I was found at the beginning of the year, after straying with no proper shelter and no reliable food source for approximately three months. When I was found I had a nasty wound on my neck that required treatment from the team at the Blue Cross hospital. It was a very frightening time for me but now I am back to full health I am at the Thirsk Rehoming Centre on the search for my new home.

I am quite a shy boy and can be anxious due to my unstable past, but I am really looking forward to getting into a quiet home with understanding owners. I absolutely love receiving tasty treats and food is definitely the way to my heart. If you give me a few treats I will quickly come to realise that you aren't so scary and you'll soon win my heart.

I would like to be the only pet in my new home and I would like the quiet life with plenty of outdoor access to come and go as I please. If you think you could offer me the home I am in desperate need of please submit your interest.

Sponsor a pet as a gift for your loved one from as little as 70p a week, and they will receive monthly updates from real homeless pets in our care who are just waiting to meet their new families. Your chosen friend or family member will also receive a downloadable certificate from each of the dogs, cats, small pets and horses they’ve helped to find loving new homes.
