Nico Nico

nico1 Nico is an extremely loving and affectionate 2.5 year old Border Collie who is looking for a very specific type of home following the tragic death of her owner. Although Nico loves nothing more than cuddling up on the sofa with you and showing you how much she loves you she has lived a very sheltered life and needs an adopter who can replicate her previous home life. She needs a rural setting with just one or two people in the home and no other pets. Nico will need access to an enclosed garden to play in and be taken for walks in the countryside where she will not encounter other people or pets.

If you would like to register your interest in Nico please email the RSPCA Manchester & Salford Branch on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 0161 882 0680 and we will send you some more information about her.

Hugo W2014076


Dogue de Bordeaux | Male - neutered | 2 years old | Available

If you love big, cuddly dogs with ridiculously floppy faces and dribble chops, then Hugo is the gent for you!

Hugo was removed from his previous home by and RSPCA Inspector. When he arrived at our centre he was extremely underweight and a sorry sight. A few good meals and some TLC and Hugo's as lively as ever. He loves having a good fuss and likes to give out big smushy kisses, which is quite an experience to say that least! All he'll ask for is a nice walk, some grub and a comfy bed to rest his head.

Hugo would be very happy with a new owner who is familiar with large breeds and doesn't have any other pets. He would also be better suited to a family who have children aged 10 years plus.

Murphy D2014094

Staffy x | Male - neutered | 2 years old approx | Available | Enlarge picture | Video: Murphy & Lola playing happily together

This gorgeous gent is hoping to find his forever home.  If somebody is willing to take in this wonderful and very loving dog then you'll have a faithful friend for eternity.

Murphy hasn't had the best start in life and we really hope that he finds that special somebody to cheer him up and give him the loving home that he deserves.

He has a lot of energy and likes to expel it by playing with toys, going for walks and making friends with lots of other doggies. If you have a friend for murphy or you just want him all to yourself then please don't hesitate to contact us.

Murphy loves going out for walks and will even lift his paws up so that you can pop his harness on ready. He'll then trot along excitedly, play tug with his toys and sniff everything in sight. One of Murphy's favourite things is a fuss (especially if you give him a good scratch under his velvety soft chin).

This brown eyed, glossy coated beauty loves other dogs and would be perfect for an active family with children aged 15 years or someone with plenty of time and energy, giving him the happy life that he truly deserves.

Jip W2013067 - Special appeal


Jip is a seven-year-old, female Rottweiler who is a fantastic example of why this breed is so popular and well loved. She combines good looks with a lovely temperament that would make her the perfect pet for the right owner.

She loves fuss and attention and being around people. In terms of behaviour, Jip is a fairly laid back girl who gets along with humans and canines alike. She would prefer to find a home that does not have cats or other small animals. She is a big pup at heart and loves playtime and socialising. She has a good grasp of the basic commands (sit, stay, down, leave.)

With her black and tan coat, and warm eyes, Jip is a pooch who can make your heart melt.

Jip has been with us for over a year, after being brought to us by an RSPCA inspector due to concerns for her welfare. After being loved and fostered with us she is ready for adoption and looking forward to meeting her new family.

Jip would be well matched to somebody with familiarity of large breed dogs, children over the age of 10 years and from being the only dog in her new home.  Jip has recently had surgery to repair both her cruciate ligaments.  She is doing extremely well and is making a great recovery.

A word from Jip's foster carer

"Jip is a lovely dog and has been a real pleasure to foster. She's the most chilled-out, laid-back dog I have ever known. While staying with me, for the most part, she has been housetrained and doesn't mind at all being left alone for a few hours. She will quickly settle down and have a good snooze or happily chew on a bone. A wagging tail and happy demeanour is the best welcome home you can get, and Jip does this with style. Neither does she pester when it comes to dinner-time, but she does appreciate any leftover chicken or beef!

I found she isn't wholly interested in dog toys and prefers a good fuss and belly rub, and if she wants more she'll give a paw to show it. She likes to sit in front of the TV and proves to be very amusing by the way she watches certain programmes and wonders where the presenter's gone when they disappear off camera! I would say she can be tense when other dogs are near while out walking, so proper and controlled introductions would be in order, and take it from me, Jip loves nothing more than a walk and shows it when the lead comes out. I'm hopeful Jip get the sort of loving home she truly deserves and one where she will give lots of love back in bucket-loads."

Chico D2014108

Chico D2014108

Staffy x | Male - neutered | 6 years old | Available


Chico is a bundle of joy and has lots of energy that he likes to expel through walks, fuss and playtime!

We love this quirky fella a lot! He has a gorgeously smushy face and a big brown patch that covers one side of it. When having a stroll, Chico walks well with a harness and likes to have a play in our exercise run.

Chico would be happy as an only pet in a household with children aged 10 and over. He would benefit from somebody who is willing to give him lots of love, affection and walkies!
