Are Certain Dogs Really Overlooked in Rescues Because of Their Colour?
Well, yes, according to the RSPCA brindle coloured dogs aren’t given the same chance that others are.
According to the charity, over the last three years it has taken on average 41 days to find loving new homes for the dogs in their care, yet for brindle dogs this figure is 65 days.
Here are six fantastic brindle dogs currently in rescue across the UK who can’t wait to find a home – could it be with you?
This lovely cross-breed girl is around 20 months old who was rescued by Lea Valley Dog Rescue from a dog pound. She is an affectionate little girl who has gained in confidence since coming into rescue. She is roughly the size of a small Cocker Spaniel and we think she has some Whippet in her, judging by her lovely looks.
Pippin loves the company of humans and dogs alike. She loves long walks and would love to get her very own family, someone to love her and show her how good life could be, someone who will let her enjoy the spring air and the summer sun. Pippin is ready to start the next length of her journey.

This fabulous blue brindle 5 year old Greyhound boy is a big huggable chunk of a boy! No longer ‘required’ he has thankfully landed on his feet with Kerry Greyhounds UK and is now in a foster home awaiting his new life with his (hopefully) soon to be forever family. He is a stunning boy with a lot of love to give.
He really will make a lovely addition to the lucky family who adopts him. Luca always keeps a favourite soft toy close by so he can play with it and fling it in the air at any given time! He is a ray of sunshine and will make anyone and everyone smile and laugh with his funny antics and lovely character.

What a stunning little girl Rosie is! This 3 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier needs a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow her to settle into her new home. Rosie was found stray/abandoned and unclaimed within a council pound until Rescue Remedies stepped forwards to offer a rescue place and save her life.
Rosie is a gem and is now prepared for her home. She walks beside you and meets most dogs well but would tell a bouncy dog off, as indeed she should. Rosie is fostered with a young child and is marvellous amongst children in general, but would prefer to be the only dog in her new home.

This beautiful girl is Bia, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is currently in the care of the RSPCA’s Blackberry Farm Animal Centre, Aylesbury, where she’s been for over a year. She has spent almost her whole life in kennels after being removed from her home in January 2014 where she had been tethered in a garden without proper shelter, food or water.
When Bia came to Blackberry Farm she had a problem with lameness caused by a floating knee cap. She needed an operation to fix it but is now waiting patiently for new owners who can give her the care and attention she needs. She’s looking for an active home where she can go on lots of walks and enjoy playtime. Could this playful bundle of brindle fun be the one for you?

5. Smiley Skye
This lovely girl is at the RSPCA Millbrook Animal Centre, she’s a seven-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Five months ago poor Skye was abandoned at the RSPCA’s London vet hospital and is still waiting to find a new family who will love her and look after her properly. Skye is very sweet but a little unsure of her new kennel environment. She really is a people dog and loves to have cuddles. The kennel staff describe her as a ‘constant companion’ and say she wants to be friends with any person she meets. She’s lots of fun off lead and absolutely loves playing with footballs.

This sweet 2 year old Pug cross girl is Sugar. She’s very Pug like in nature and stamps her feet in true Pug style. She gets very excited but she’s such a young girl, she’ll need a home where she gets plenty of love and exercise.
She’s a proper little poppet who will repay her new family in buckets with love, laughs and stamps.
