Quirky Clyde needs a home after 2 years in kennels

Sweet terrier spends two years in kennels and is now ready for a new family!

Curious Clyde is on the look-out for a very special home to call his own.

This sweet five-year-old terrier cross has been in RSPCA kennels for two years while his former owner was investigated and prosecuted for animal welfare offences.

Now that the case has concluded, this fun and quirky little dog is looking for an owner who will treat him to the life he deserves. And staff at RSPCA South Godstone Animal Centre, in Surrey, are desperate to see him in a home environment after so long in kennels.

“If you think you could be the Bonnie to our Clyde then we’d love to hear from you,” Hannah Hawkins said.

“He is a quirky little dog and needs a special owner who will match with his cheeky personality!

“He is fun, outgoing and loving but, due to his past, needs a specific type of home.”

Staff would like to see Clyde go to a sensible owner who will be prepared to work though some of his quirks. He’s best suited to an adult-only home where he will get all the social contact he craves but he could go to a home with older teenage children if suitable.

“We’d like Clyde to be the only pet in the home,” Hannah added. “He’ll need a nice, soft bed to snuggle up on, plenty of toys to play with and someone around for much of the day to give him the TLC he needs and deserves.

“Although he’s little, he’s full of life so his new owner will need to keep up with him!”

While in RSPCA care, the little terrier has received lots of training and has come on well so would need to continue with positive, reward-based training in his new home.

As he still needs further training and more socialisation around other dogs, Clyde must be muzzled in public but is very friendly with people.

“Please don’t let the muzzle put you off,” Hannah said, “he’s a lovely dog and all of the staff here have completely fallen in love with his cheeky character.

“We know that with the right family and the correct guidance he will make a wonderful companion. He just needs someone who is willing to take him on quirks ‘n’ all!”
