Tandie was sadly returned to the RSPCA Cornwall centre after her owner died
A spaniel who was rehomed by a rescue centre as a puppy in 2007 has sadly found herself back in their care 14 years later, after one of her adopters died.
Tandie came into the RSPCA Cornwall branch’s care this summer after one of her owners sadly passed away and her family couldn’t take care of her.
An RSPCA Cornwall spokesperson said: “We cared for Tandie 14 years ago and we still will today. She was adopted from us as a puppy and had a wonderful life with the most incredible family but, sadly, they had to make a heartbreaking decision to sign her over to us following a death in the family.
“Her years have caught up with her since we last took care of her. She has very limited vision and is completely deaf. She also has arthritis, various lumps and bumps, and a skin condition which she has daily treatment for.
“For these reasons, we’re looking for an end of life foster home locally to our centre so that we can continue to financially and medically support Tandie, and her fosterers, for the rest of her days. Tandie started her life with us and we think it’s important that we’re here with her until the end.”
Staff are looking for a quiet home and tidy home where she can learn the layout easier and won’t bump into things. She likes to potter and adores people so is happiest when she’s nearby to her favourite humans. She needs a home with no other pets and with people who are around most of the day, as well as a secure garden.
Tandie arrived in RSPCA care in 2007 with her mum - a stray with a broken jaw - and her nine littermates. All of the dogs were successfully rehomed to wonderful families to live long and happy lives.
