This is a little appeal on behalf of Pebbles, a 2-and-a-half-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier X. We are looking for a perfect home for this magical, young girl and we hope that, by reading a little bit about her, you may feel that your heart-strings have been sufficiently tugged and that you can find a special place for this very special lady.

Pebbles, so far, hasn't had the benefit of a nice, settled, loving home, like the one that she undoubtedly deserves - she was brought to us by an RSPCA Inspector because of concerns over her welfare. Her present kennel environment is unsuited to her timid nature – there's far too much going off for her to truly relax. She needs a nice, steady family who are willing to work with her in order to get her loving, confident side to show itself.

A testament to her difficult life so far is how she doesn't understand the concept of play and has no interest in toys, which will shock a great many dog owners who are so used to their own pooches chasing toys as if there were no greater purpose in life! Her real joy comes from her enjoyment of human contact and a love of being groomed – so if you can offer her cuddles and love, you will find a faithful friend in Pebbles.

This gorgeous girl would be best placed with older children (13+), and she would also be well suited to homes with existing animals (provided introductions are done gradually). She would ideally, however, be rehomed with an indoor dog crate as a result of her nervous nature, as this crate would offer a safe haven of sorts where she could relax while she settles in.

She is a little, rough diamond is our Pebbles and all she requires is a little polish and a little patience, and she will gleam brighter than any gem you've ever seen before. So, please give her a chance you will be amply rewarded!

American Bulldog

Little doggy faces can come in many shapes and sizes - whether it's the pointiness of a Doberman, the wrinkliness of a Shar-Pei, or the fluffiness of a Cocker Spaniel - but far and away the most remarkably beautiful is our gorgeous old Lady's irresistible squishiness! Just watching her floppy chops wobble from side to side as she runs is sure to cause a cheek-achingly wide grin to spread itself across your face.

Lady the 7-Year-Old American Bulldog's gorgeousness extends beyond just her face though, as she has a beautiful colouration and an adorably cute, wiggly bum. However her wonderful nature is at least as lovely, you simply will not find a dog anywhere else that is as delightfully friendly, as playful, or as enjoyable to be around as Lady. Each moment you share will be filled with laughter.

One of Lady's favourite things is the chance to stretch her ageing legs by chasing a ball, or a tug toy, around, she will bounce around our exercise area like a lamb in the springtime sun. And you can't fail to be amused by how proud she looks when she returns the toy to you - as though to say "look how clever I am!". The one thing she perhaps loves more than playtime is to have some fuss and cuddles from those who love her, she especially enjoys having her bum scratched and her tail will wag as though its life depended upon it!

Lady would be suitable for a home with children aged 10+, this is because she can be a little startled by quick and sudden movements, and she would need tho be rehired as an only pet as she needs all the fuss and cuddles to be for her alone! If Lady sounds like a pooch you could love, then come down and see her. I'm absolutely sure that you'll be smitten!

Those Oreo-brand chocolate biscuits may be sweet but we can guarantee that our Oreo is sweeter! This 6-and-a-half-year-old Terrier X has been with us now for the best part of 5 months - for reasons that are entirely beyond his control – and is now ready for a bright new dawn! This shaggy-coated chap has a wonderfully endearing character and that makes spending time with him a pure delight. Whether it's how he makes the most adorable little grunts and snorts like a wee piggy, or how he just loves human company so, so much, he is just an absolute joy to be around.

His life so far hasn't been the easiest or most conventional, so what Oreo needs more than anything in the world is to make up for lost time and make every single day from this point forward one of happiness and love. He may not be the most well-coiffured pooch in the world, but it's his unique scruffiness and loveliness that make him who he is – and we wouldn't change him for the world.

Oreo would be best suited to homes with children aged 10 or above, or those with elderly people, or for single-person households – any of these situations would be just to his liking! In terms of animal friends, Oreo could possibly go to homes with existing dogs – though it is dependent upon the nature of the dog – but would require further assessment with cats and small animals.

So if all this sounds to your liking, we urge you to come and see this gorgeous guy because, just like the biscuits, Oreo's best bit is his soft and sweet centre!

"He's not the messiah, he's a nighty, little pooch!"

Pointy-eared Brian has a real zest for life and he will do his absolute best to make sure that everybody knows it! He is a delightfully friendly, little guy, who adores being around people - the mere prospect of some cuddles and fuss makes his gorgeous eyes light up.

You really will struggle to find a dog who is quite as adorably playful as this boisterous Bull terrier, his most favouritest things are his toys (apart from people, which are also his most favouritest things!), with which he will bounce around and chase for hours on end. He will truly being a smile to your face.

This young terrier combines this wonderfully playful and loving character with an eminently kissable face - his puppy dog eyes, and his soft, squishy mouth being particular highlights! This pooch has so many wonderful and endearing qualities - if you were to adopt him, you be receiving a most remarkable friend and companion.

Brian loves playing with other dogs but can be very boisterous with them so would be best plaved in a home without an existing dog. However, his eagerness and excitement can be a little much for certain dogs so he would ideally go with a dog who will happily put up with such occasional giddiness. Unfortunately, Brain would be unsuitable for homes with existing cats and small animals. Brian would be best placed with a home with children aged 10+.
