Abandoned puppies seeking homes

TEN puppies abandoned with their mother outside the RSPCA last month are now ready to go to loving homes.

But there's a new problem - since that litter was dumped at the shelter, a further two of similar size have also been handed in.

Shelter manager Vicki Beer said one puppy from the original litter had found a home, but the other nine still had to be placed.

Their mother also needed a home.

"The sooner I can get rid of some of them, the better," Ms Beer said.

She said the puppies, like their mother, all had lovely natures, and all had been desexed and wormed.

Ms Beer said the puppies were likely to grow into medium to large dogs, and needed owners who could look after them properly.

And she said staff at the RSPCA would have mixed emotions at seeing them go.

"Sometimes it's very hard to say goodbye," she said.

"We've just sold a beautiful older dog that we all became very attached to."
