Bubba and Khan: in the dog house for nine months

The Scottish SPCA’s Aberdeenshire animal rescue and rehoming centre is seeking loving new homes for two desperately sad staffies who are dog-tired of spending their lives in kennels, alone.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity rescued four year-old Khan last March when his previous owner was no longer able to provide for him. At around the same time seven year-old Bubba arrived in the Scottish SPCA’s care after she was found wandering the streets alone and sadly no-one ever came forward to claim her.

The pair have been patiently waiting and wishing for new homes ever since, but both dogs have now resigned themselves to the possibility that nobody wants them.

Assistant manager Debbie Innes said, “As a charity that rescues abused,neglected and unwanted animals our staff witness a lot of terrible things. Some of the cruelty we see is unspeakable and it stays with you for a very long time.

“However, one of the hardest things for us to cope with is watching an animal in our care slowly shut down, to the point that the light just fades from their eyes and they hardly ever leave their beds, the constant rejection becomes too much for them to bear.

“Bubba is one of the sweetest, most loving dogs you could ever meet. However, in her kennel she just lies in her bed in a state of sheer depression.

“Take her out of her kennel and she’s a completely different dog.

“Khan has never really known what it is to have a home to call his own. He’d make a fantastic pet for anyone who has a good understanding of the staffie breed, if only someone would give him his chance to shine.”
